INTEGRATION: Making "Relevant" Connections between CTE & Academic Disciplines - is a PowerPoint that we are sharing with you to show you results of an ACTE National Survey. Have you seen the results (FACTS) of the 2013 CTE Works! ACTE National Survey? Did you know that students said in the survey that their CTE (Career & Technical Education) courses helped them in their academic courses? Students say they are learning valuable career and leadership skills, plus they have the opportunity to be creative and innovative in their CTE courses. INTEGRATION is highly supported and encouraged.
ATTENTION CTE TEACHERS: Do you realize that YOU are one of the best assets your school has to incorporate a quality INTEGRATED program in your school -- one that unites the school community with the local business community? Why? Because your program has been specifically designed to prepare students for the workplace.

As a CTE teacher, perhaps you have given serious thought to integrating what you teach in your content area with that of another academic discipline; however, you’re not sure how or where to begin. Perhaps you have spoken with another teacher and have found that you share a common interest in interdisciplinary instruction. By using the 2013 CTE Works! National Survey of students and educators as a basis for further discussion, now may be the time to share your ideas/thoughts/intentions with your administrators, counselors, and other staff members. The facts stated in this survey indicates that students appreciate the value that CTE offers them now and in preparation for their future careers. Learning and understanding the interdisciplinary connections between the disciplines TODAY prepares students for the workplace and success on the job TOMORROW!
This PowerPoint is offered to you FREE for the purpose of summarizing the statistical results of the ACTE research 2013 CTE Works! National Survey. Education Get Real (EGR) is sharing this ACTE data with other CTE educators -- we did not write it. EGR has created this PowerPoint for you to use as an informational tool when soliciting administrative and staff support/approval for integrating your CTE program with another academic discipline in your school. EGR fully supports the Association of Career & Technical Education (ACTE) and we give them high commendations for all that they do to support CTE teachers, students, and programs.
Further, this PPT suggests excellent integration materials that have been written by Education Get Real authors who have successfully created their own lesson plans/courses/materials, implemented them, and who are now sharing their personally-developed materials with you on this TpT site. EGR has produced numerous interdisciplinary resources for you (activities/PPTs/courses/units/etc.) to use as well to help you design integrated coursework of your own. These materials will help you "kick start" the creation of integrated materials that you wish to develop as you collaborate with teachers of other disciplines -- they will serve as "how to" examples.
