         Literacy in CTE

    Looking for a few good teams!

WHY---reading, writing and
speaking in my CTE class?
Premise: Learning and applying
academics in context provides the hook
to keep young people in school.
Rigorous learning stimulates interests
and prepares young adults for careers
and postsecondary options.
