Science/Technical Studies Content Area Literacy 04/15/2014 PDF

Application of Content

Intensive laboratory applications are a component of this course and may be either school based or work based or a combination of the two.  Work-based learning experiences should be in a closely related industry setting.  Instructors shall have a standards-based training plan for students participating in work-based learning experiences.

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs)

Career and Technical Student Organizations are considered a powerful instructional tool when integrated into Career and Technical Education programs. They enhance the knowledge and skills students learn in a course by allowing a student to participate in a unique program of career and leadership development. Students should be encouraged to participate in FCCLA, the CTSO for the most closely related subject matter areas.
