Adolescent Literacy's Connection to CTE
Today's high-quality employment opportunities require a more advanced level of literacy than ever before. It is now widely recognized that students must be able to read, understand and analyze high-level nonfiction information in order to be successful in future careers. Many CTE programs acknowledge the importance of improving adolescent literacy skills and have made this a top priority in their programs.
This webinar will explore how to seamlessly integrate rigorous and relevant literacy instruction into any CTE program. Time will be spent discussing how to scaffold literacy support so students can learn to read both fluently and accurately. Numerous content-area reading strategies will be shared. An emphasis will be placed on engaging strategies that assist students as they build knowledge, solve problems and critique information.
