Lane ESD is in its third year of a nationwide Math-In-CTE Technical Assistance Program, an innovative project developed by the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education (NRCCTE) at the University of Minnesota, in consultation with the United States Department of Education Office of Vocational and Adult Education.
Math-in-CTE utilizes a new professional development and teacher leadership model that pairs a career and technical education (CTE) teacher with a high school math teacher to explicitly teach and reinforce math concepts in the given career field. Nationally, the initiative has involved over 200 teachers and 4,000 students in 12 states. Results demonstrated students raised achievement scores by 28% and 14% on two national standardized tests of math. Continue or play the video to learn more.
