NRCCTE Technical Assistance Updates: Catch up on all the news from the NRCCTE’s Math-in-CTE and Literacy-in-CTE implementations around the country in the latest edition (September 2011) of the Technical Assistance Newsletter.

Oregon Launches Literacy-in-CTE: Oregon became the first state to launch a full implementation of the Literacy-in-CTE curriculum integration model. At Oregon’s summer professional development session, 26 teachers and administrators and 11 English/Language Arts teachers received training on 12 literacy strategies. Pictured: Travis Park, NRCCTE facilitator, explains literacy strategies.

Utah North Part of Statewide Curriculum Integration Plan: After a year of successful implementation, Utah is expanding the Math-in-CTE model to a regional format that spans the entire state. Three regions (North, South, and Salt Lake City) are all working with NRCCTE facilitators to enhance the math in the FACS curriculum. A number of teachers and administrators used their experience from the 2010-2011 implementation to serve as local facilitators. Pictured: Math educator Jennifer Tanner (at left) and FACS teacher Gail Ferrin work to complete their lesson plan for a large group presentation.
