Career Technology Education
Career Technology Education
Your school corporation recently hired a new superintendent. Your new superintendent has limited knowledge of career and technical education and has asked you to explain in detail the concepts listed below in terms that a layperson could understand. While your new superintendent doesn?t necessarily like offering page lengths for such responses, here are some general guidelines:
? A clearly articulated response in the range of four complete (top to bottom) pages not including references/resources will likely be assessed in the acceptable range. This acceptable assessment assumes accurate content and suitable depth across each question concept.
? A clearly articulated response in the range of six complete (top to bottom) pages not including references/resources will likely be assessed in the target range. This target range assessment assumes accurate content and suitable depth across each question concept.
? State Plan for Career and Technical Education?This document provides the framework for career and technical education in Indiana (and all other states) from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2013, and is a direct result of The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006. As a career and technical education teacher, it is essential that you have a complete understanding of this document. Specifically, your new superintendent would like for you to explain in your own words five items contained in the Indiana State Plan for Career and Technical Education (or your respective state plan) that you did not know about but will have or has had a direct impact on your program, your school, and/or community. Please reference the appropriate pages for each of your responses.
? Area Career Centers?States are divided into area career districts. Each career district is served by an area career center (or similar school configuration) to meet the career and technical education needs of local students. Specifically, your new superintendent would like for you to provide in your own words a review of a selected area career center (or similar school configuration). Three area career center websites that would be useful for this question component include: Four County Area Cooperative, McKenzie Career Center, and Walker Career Center.
? Dual Credit?The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 requires that secondary and postsecondary programs be aligned to include academic and career and technical education in a non-duplicative progression of courses. This requirement can best be achieved via articulation agreements resulting in dual credit. Specifically, your new superintendent would like for you to explain in your own words the ?basic conditions? of dual credit at it applies in your state. Please include appropriate references to support your comments.
? Integration of Academic and Career and Technical Education?The integration of academic and career and technical education is mandated by federal legislation and also makes good sense. Please use the article written by Dr. Debra Bragg from the University of Illinois, Urban-Champaign entitled Reclaiming a Lost Legacy: Integration of Academic and Vocational Education ? https://www.bsu.edu/libraries/protected/ereserves/Truell/BED582/Bragg1999.pdf
? as the reference when responding to this item. Dr. Bragg is a nationally noted expert on the integration of career and technical education. Specifically, your new superintendent would like for you to explain in your own words the following integration of academic and career and technical education models discussed in Dr. Bragg?s article: (1) within-course integration, (2) capstone integration, and (3) cross-curricular integration.
? Community College Career and Technical Education Programs?Postsecondary CTE programs provide individuals with numerous opportunities to continue education beyond high school. Specifically, your new superintendent would like for you to explain in your own words the various CTE programs that could benefit your students or your potential students available at your local community college. Please provide the specific community college and programs to support your answer.
