There is evidence that: • CTE does not limit postsecondary education • Math and science course taking by CTE students is increasing: amount and complexity • CTE as a function of the HS experience reduces the probability of dropping out of school • CTE is an economic value to the individual and the community (ROI) • It is possible to “major” in CTE and Academics One conclusion is that A decade of reform (Perkins II & III, STWOA & various state efforts) is beginning to have an effect but . . . achievement and transition are the challenges put forth. . .

(2003). Public High School Graduates Who Participated in Vocational/Technical Education GPA less than 2.0 More than 50% FRL Why Focus on CTE III • CTE provides a math-rich context • CTE curriculum/pedagogies do not systematically emphasize math skill development Alternative CTE Math Improvement Strategies • • • • • Related Math class*(e.g., Business math) Applied Math class* (e.g., Tech Prep math) Pull out math classes*with math teacher Math teacher team teaches* in CTE class The NRCCTC, Math-in-CTE model-a research based approach to improving math skills *Note: while some of these may improve math skills of students, the evidence is lacking. Math-in-CTE A study to test the possibility that enhancing the embedded mathematics in Technical Education coursework will build skills in this critical academic area without reducing technical skill development. Key Questions of the Study • Does enhancing the CTE curriculum with math increase math skills of CTE students? • Can we infuse enough math into CTE curricula to meaningfully enhance the academic skills of CTE participants (Perkins III Core Indicator) • . . . Without reducing technical skill development • What works? Study Design: Key Features • Random assignment of teachers to experimental or control condition • Five simultaneous study replications • Three measures of math skills (applied, traditional, college placement) • Multi-method: quantitative and qualitative • Focus of the experimental intervention was naturally occurring math (embedded in curriculum) • A model of Curriculum Integration • Intense focus on Fidelity of Treatment Study Design 0405 School Year AutoTech National Research Center BusEd Ag P&T IT Health Experimental Experimental Experimental Experimental Experimental Control Control Control Control Control Sample 2004-05: 69 Experimental CTE/Math teams and 80 Control CTE Teachers Total sample: 3,000 students* Study Design: Participants Participant • Experimental CTE teacher • Math teacher • Control CTE teacher • Liaison • • • • Primary Role Implement the math enhancements Provide support for the CTE teacher Teach their regular curriculum Administer surveys and tests Measuring Math & Technical Skill Achievement • Global math assessments • General, grade level tests (Terra Nova, AccuPlacer, WorkKeys) • Technical skill • NOCTI, AYES, or MarkED occupational knowledge assessment Building Academic Skills in Context: Math-in-CTE The “method” of Math-in-CTE The Experimental Treatment • Professional Development • The Pedagogy Math-in-CTE The Method • Curriculum mapping • Enhancing the math – The Pedagogy Curriculum Maps • Begin with CTE Content • Look for places where math is part of the CTE content (V-Tecs, AYES, MarkED, state guides, last year’s maps) • Create “map” for the school year • Align map with planned curriculum for the year (scope & sequence) CTE Unit CTE Concepts Math Concepts Bus/Mkt: Distribution Manufacturing Tech: Measurement Control Inventory: order, receive, count, maintain Ratio/Percentages Graphing/Predictions Algebraic Expressions Equations Measure items for production Number Sense Fractions Decimals Angles Sample Curriculum Map Agricultural Mechanics Curriculum Mathematics Content Standards Determining sprayer nozzle size given flow rate and speed Problem solving involving cross-sectional area, volume, and related rates Determine pipe size and water flow rates for a water pump Problem solving involving cross-sectional area, volume, and related rates Determine amount of paint needed to paint a given surface (calculate surface area, etc) Problem solving involving surface area, ratio and proportions Determine the concrete reinforcements and spacing needed when building a concrete platform or structure Problem solving involving cross-sectional area, volume, and related rates PASS Standards PASS Process Standard 1: Problem Solving NCTM Standards NCTM Problem Solving Standard for Grades 912 Scope & Sequence TIME CTE CONCEPT MATH CONCEPT MATH-IN-CTE LESSON MATH STANDARD MATH PARTNER MEETING DATE WEEK 1 Aug. 17 Marketing and DECA Orientation NA NA NA NA WEEK 2 Aug. 23 DECA Orientation General Overview of the Math-in-CTE Project NA NA NA Sales Unit Introduction to the 7 Math Concepts Consent Forms, Student Survey, and Math Pre Test NA Sept. 2 Sales Unit Ratio/Percentages #1 – To Market, To Market; Lesson #25 Standards 1, 6 Sept. 9 Graphing/ Predictions Algebraic Expressions & Equations, Pattern Recognition, Functions, Data Representation #4 - What Product to Sell Standards 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 Sept. 16 WEEK 3 Aug. 30 (Officer Elections) WEEK 4 Sept. 7 (TSLP begins) WEEK 5 Sept. 13 Sales Unit Building the Enhanced CTE Lesson The Pedagogy 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Develop and sustain a community of practice B. Begin with the CTE curriculum and not with the math curriculum C. Understand math as essential workplace skill D. Maximize the math in CTE curricula E. CTE teachers are teachers of “math-in-CTE” NOT math teachers What we are and are not: A contextual continuum • Traditional academic class (e.g. Algebra 1) • Disconnected • Algebra 1 • Coordinated • Academies • CTE & Academic teachers • Context Based • Contextual coordinate around themes (e.g. ‘health’) • Integrated • Occupation is the context for delivery of traditional math academics (Related or applied math) • NRC Model • Academics emerge from occupational content Issues • How much math can be enhanced in CTE before it is no longer a CTE class? (The “tipping” point issue) • Crisis Immediacy – we want a fix and we want it now • System investment (teacher time and PD costs) • Should math credit be provided for enhanced CTE classes – are we teaching math or providing a venue for students to learn how to use math? 1. Highly qualified teacher 2. Loss of CTE integrity • What are the barriers in moving this model to pre-service education? Conclusion: The NRC Model (Process)(Pedagogy)=Math achievement Core Principles Bringing Math-in-CTE to your Community 1. Communities of practice A. 10+ CTE-Math Teacher teams B. Specific occupational foci B. Regional or state C. Invite not compel 2. Administrator support A. Professional Development – (5:3:2) – for at least one full year B. Substitutes C. PD support (facilities, etc.) D. Staff the structure 3. Document!!! 4. Support structure
