Career and Technology Education
Secondary Tier I Priorities
Supporting Core Curriculum with Real World Applicable Skills!
CTE classes are a great way to combine core curriculum and applicable skills needed for the workforce. Below are several programs from BCTAL that showcase real world skills needed for future careers.
- Each of these programs require students to learn and apply technical vocabulary that is necessary for the profession.
- Higher-level questioning strategies are used to increase rigor and understanding. In programs where they are available, certifications are embedded into the programs.
- Teachers implement the Workshop Model of instruction when applicable. Since many of our classes are lab based or hands on, the workshop model or a modified version works well within the framework of our class structures.
At BCTAL, we think hands on is best!
