The study sought to identify the level of integration of academics into CTE programing. Key findings, leading practices and a rubric for assessing academic integration are presented here.

Reading Strategies

Reading is an essential skill for learning in all subjects. Developing reading proficiency is more that decoding words. Teachers need to use a combination of pre- and post-reading strategies to help students develop understanding. 23 Reading Strategies helps CTE teachers enhance student reading comprehension in CTE instruction. Tips on Reading Specific Text includes suggestions on interpreting graphs and charts.

Literacy Database

The database includes both fiction and non-fiction texts to support literacy within a rigorous CTE program. The database lists many works, including novels, books, short stories, biographies, speeches – even poems and plays linked to specific CTE clusters, reading levels, and grades. All items included have been suggested by educators in the field. The items are a shared resource among educators and are not endorsed by the CTE Technical Assistance Center or the NYSED.
