Technical Reading

Your CTE classroom truly is the key to meaningful application of the current career and college readiness standards. This workshop will give you specific examples where Arizona’s College and Career Readiness standards for technical reading already exist in your CTE program. It will also provide opportunities for you to incorporate additional standards into your lessons, AND give you strategies to use to increase your students’ ability to read difficult technical information more effectively. Bring your textbook or a couple of industry journal articles to use for building close reading lessons to take back to your classroom the very next day. Come find out why CTE really is a powerful driver for creating literate employees for our 21st century workforce.

Note:  This is the Pre-requisite course to Performance Literacy.  You must complete both courses to receive (1) ADE Credit.
