This course consists of TWO 8-hour classes. You must attend BOTH classes to receive credit.
Your CTE classroom truly is the key to the meaningful application of the current career and college readiness standards. This course will give you specific examples where Arizona’s Common Core standards for Technical Literacy already exist in your CTE program, it will provide opportunities for you to incorporate additional standards into your lessons, AND it will give you strategies to take back to your classroom to increase your student’s ability to read difficult technical information more effectively.
Performance Literacy is the partner class for Technical Reading. This second course allows teachers to gain a deeper understanding of writing and speaking standards, identify how they currently use them in their programs, and determine specific steps they can take to increase their use of these standards as well as their students’ success with them.
The technical literacy standards are skill-driven and a perfect fit for our CTE programs’ focus on career AND college readiness as our students complete their programs.
Come find out why CTE really is a powerful driver for creating literate employees for our 21st-century workforce!
There is no homework for this class. Upon successful completion of Technical Reading and Performance Literacy, participants will receive an ADE certificate for 15 professional development clock hours, which equates to one (1) semester hour of coursework.
