Research and experience show that implementing effective reading and vocabulary practices directly impacts student academic success. CTE students with strong reading and vocabulary skills are able to make connections to new content quicker, perform better on certifications and assessments, and engage more readily in professional communication in industry.
This course is designed to equip teachers to use their program instructional terminology along with high-yield vocabulary practices to plan and teach in both the class and hands-on settings. Whereas technical reading and performance-based literacy focus on standards for reading, writing, listening, and speaking, this course takes a deeper look at using effective reading and vocabulary strategies.
Upon successful completion of the course, which includes submission of homework, participants will receive an ADE certificate for 15 professional development clock hours, which equates to one (1) semester hour of coursework.
