    Taking Perspective You are here Home Publications Resources Presentations Participation in Career Participation in Career and Technical Education in High School A Course Taking Perspective Apr 2012 Authors Oscar A Aliaga Emily Dickinson NRCCTE University of Louisville Abstract Participation in CTE is examined using a typology that reflects more closely and more thoroughly the experience of high schools students Using variables that have arguably been traditional predictors we create a path analysis model to explain why participation in CTE of those students is likely to be based on background personal and family characteristics and prior academic achievement Specifically we examined course taking of 3 or more CTE credits with the fulfillment of the requirements of at least one occupational area Using data from the NCES Education Longitudinal ELS Study of 2002 the model reveals an inverse relationship between the background characteristics and prior achievement with high intensity CTE course taking Aliaga O A Dickinson E 2012 April Participation in career and technical education in high school A course taking perspective Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association Vancouver BC Read the Report Research Reports Impact Reports Brochures Journal Magazine Articles The Idea Center Videos Podcasts

  • Work-Based Learning Opportunities for High School Students | NRCCTE
    as part of secondary CTE programs Various attempts have been made in the last several decades to bring WBL into mainstream U S education reform but two recently published reports Pathways to Prosperity Symonds Schwartz Ferguson 2011 and Learning for Jobs OECD 2010 have once again brought to the forefront issues related to the value of WBL as an instructional strategy to better prepare students for college and the workforce Staff at FHI 360 scanned the literature visited high schools and produced detailed descriptions of current WBL practices that may help educators and policymakers understand how WBL operates in the United States This report describes similarities and differences as well as strengths and limitations across three major WBL categories internships co operative education co op youth apprenticeships and school based enterprises SBE supplemented by vignettes case studies and descriptions of selected WBL sites Assuming that federal policy will support states in improving WBL programs recommendations based on the findings generated by this project are for state leaders to Provide a clear substantive purpose for and stated value of WBL emphasizing the learning component in the work experience Offer resources and information about components of high quality WBL programs Provide professional development for teachers and WBL coordinators to develop instructional strategies including for cognitive transfer of problem solving skills Convene meetings with employer associations and labor unions to achieve buy in for the creation of more meaningful WBL programs connected to school curriculum Provide resources and guidelines for employer mentor selection training and continued engagement Support teachers with release time and professional development to work closely with WBL coordinators and employer mentors to construct detailed student training plans into which students can have input Require the broadening of selection criteria and provisions for access so more students can participate in WBL

  • Improving the Quality of Career and Technical Alternative Teacher Preparation | NRCCTE
    Alternative Teacher Preparation Jan 2013 Authors Gene Bottoms Paula Egelson Heather Sass John Uhn Southern Regional Education Board This report presents the results of the NRCCTE s five year collaboration with SREB to develop an induction model for new CTE teachers pursuing an alternative route to certification that increases their competence self efficacy and retention CTE teachers who enter the profession through alternative routes are more likely to feel confident about their knowledge of their career field but less confident about their ability to convey that knowledge to students Many alternatively certified CTE teachers express concern regarding classroom management student motivation and planning instruction for special needs students As this report outlines research indicates that alternatively certified teachers need professional development in planning instructional methods assessment and how to support struggling students Alternatively certified CTE teachers also need feedback about their work strategies for managing added demands on their time and energy and resources for planning and teaching In response to these needs our field tested induction model builds the capacity of beginning CTE teachers to offer instruction that is both intellectually demanding and standards focused and thus more likely to improve CTE students academic achievement The model also builds CTE teachers capacity to design instruction that is actively engaging using strategies like project based learning and cooperative learning Students who are actively engaged intellectually and emotionally in their high school courses are more likely to stay in school acquire their high school diplomas in four years and enter postsecondary institutions without the need for remediation Bottoms G Egelson P Sass H Uhn J 2013 January Improving the quality of career and technical alternative teacher preparation An induction model of professional development and support Louisville KY National Research Center for Career and Technical Education University of Louisville Read the Research

  • The Crosswalk Validation Project: Final Report | NRCCTE
    the need for a uniformly global set of information a national level database or at minimum a common standardized set of definitions and measures to meet CTE s multiple needs including accountability and evaluation career guidance and program improvement The NRCCTE s Perkins Crosswalk Validation Project was a multi state multi institutional collaborative effort led by the NRCCTE and the NASDCTEc that sought 1 greater consistency and clarity in Perkins secondary and postsecondary data collection and reporting 2 a common data crosswalk that links occupations to educational programs career clusters and career pathways and 3 a foundation for more standardized accountability requirements in later iterations of the Perkins legislation In this final report the project s co authors describe the process by which they developed a set of revised Perkins crosswalk tables that connect Classification of Instructional Program CIP codes Standard Occupational Classification SOC codes Career Clusters and Career Pathways These revised crosswalks have created a foundation for more standardized accountability requirements a key focus for how future Perkins legislation needs to be built Read more about the project and download revised Perkins tables on the Crosswalk Validation project page Kotamraju P Steuernagel B 2012 October The crosswalk validation project
