Literacy-in-CTE. Demands on students’ literacy skills are becoming increasingly intense and rigorous, especially in highly technical CTE courses and in today’s labor market.

Literacy-in-CTE

Students must possess the requisite literacy skills for career and academic success, yet barely one-third of high school graduates are considered proficient in reading. CTE teachers can facilitate the learning processes by scaffolding instruction with literacy strategies. In developing the Literacy-in-CTE curriculum integration model, which was based on the successful Math-in-CTE curriculum integration study and professional development model, NRCCTE researchers at Cornell University experimentally tested two approaches to integrating literacy skills in CTE.

During Literacy-in-CTE professional development sessions, CTE teachers learn to integrate effective models of reading interventions in the context of their CTE courses. 45 ways to avoid using the word 'very'.

Creating mapped stories is one of my favorite activities to help history students see the significance of location in historical events.

3 Ways to Map Stories

Most of the time I have students include dated placemarks on the mapped stories that they build. Here are three free tools that students can use to map stories. The Google Earth Tour Builder allows students to create Google Earth tours in their web browsers. The Tour Builder uses a slide-like format for creating tours. Each slide or stop in the tour can have a date or range of dates attached to it. Odyssey.js is an open source map creation tool from CartoDB. StoryMap JS is a nice tool for creating mapped stories.

Home. The research dissemination efforts of the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) ended on March 31, 2007, with the end of the federal funding.

Home

The research publications, Focus on Basics, training and teaching resources, and other materials continue to be available for download from this Web site. These materials are no longer available in print. We hope that NCSALL's efforts improved practices and informed teaching in the educational programs that serve adults with limited literacy and English language skills, and those without a high school diploma, as well as increased the research base on adult learning and literacy.

World Education was the dissemination partner for NSCALL, 1996 -2007. World Education continues to host this site so that the valuable resources developed during this time are still accessible.
