Free Math-in-CTE Summer Workshops
The Connections CTE Initiative will be hosting two upcoming Math-in-CTE workshops in July in Collinsville and Springfield, Illinois. Professional trainers for each workshop are from the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education, www.nrccte.org. Six Professional Development Hours, (PDH’s), will be offered.
Requirement for attendance|
1. Schools must have at least 1 Math teacher and 1-2 CTE teachers in attendance.
2. There will be a limit of 25 participants at each Math workshop location.
An option to apply for a $150 stipend will be available on the registration form.
Registration is free, but you will need to register online with the links below. Space is limited so please register early.
Please select the workshop you and/or your teachers would like to attend:
The NRCCTE has moved the compelling results of its scientifically based research study of Math-in-CTE into classroom practice with the Math-in-CTE curriculum integration professional development model. Since the model launched as a nationwide initiative in 2006, almost 700 CTE teachers in nearly 30 states or large districts, along with their math teacher partners, have been trained in Math-in-CTE professional development sessions. Over 17,000 CTE students are estimated to have benefited.
In the original Math-in-CTE research study, students in the classrooms of teachers trained in the model performed significantly better on standardized math tests and community college math placement tests than students who received the regular CTE curriculum. Students also improved their math skills without losing the technical skills needed for college and career readiness.
Based upon the NRCCTE’s research-driven philosophy of fully contextualized curriculum integration, Math-in-CTE is not a curriculum but a process through which the math that naturally occurs in the CTE curriculum is enhanced. CTE teachers are never asked to replace what they already teach or to superimpose math that does not belong in their courses. Visit NRCCTE's website: http://www.nrccte.org/professional-development.
