As states and districts begin to implement the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), teachers may need to redesign their lessons and classroom activities to ensure that course content is rigorous and aligned to the CCSS. To help teachers and education leaders address this challenge, Achieve and NASDCTEc have joined to pilot a process in which secondary and postsecondary educators develop and evaluate instructional tasks that demonstrate how for high school mathematics expectations can be applied using Career Technical Education (CTE) content. Hear about the process, pilot results, and the plans for the future related to using the protocol.
Dean Folkers, Deputy Executive Director of NASDCTEc/NCTEF, and a representative from Achieve, will discuss the implementation and outcomes of the initiative. Mark Williams, CTE State Director in Illinois, will describe his stateâ€™s role in the pilot project.
