CTE & Cool Tech Tools

Helping Teachers Teach  
Teachers and administrators need ongoing skill development, just like their students do. What role do schools, districts, states and intermediaries play in creating and delivering teacher training? What can be done to retain new CTE teachers? How can professionals from the world of work most effectively transfer their skills to the CTE classroom? This issue will address methods and programs for keeping the CTE teacher pipeline flowing.

Up in the Air   
CTE isn’t just on the ground, it’s also up in the air! Aviation academies are popping up across the country. There are a host of jobs in aviation and aeronautics for today’s students to choose from. This issue will look at these programs, and we’ll also look at how business and industry play a part in curriculum development and hands-on training in these programs.

Deadline for proposal: ACTE is not accepting submissions for this issue.  


Promoting Your CTE Program  
CTE teachers and students know the value of CTE, but what about everybody else? In many cases, parents, non-CTE teachers, counselors and others forget that CTE isn’t just for non-college bound; it’s for everyone. CTE has great value and importance for the nation. This issue will explore ways you can promote your CTE program, and how, person by person, we can change the perception of CTE for the better.  

Deadline for proposal: October 20
Deadline for submissions: November 20

Preparing for the Road Ahead 
Internships. Apprenticeships. Mentorships. These real-world, hands-on learning experiences are vital for students today.

And what role do employers plan in helping guide them to a career they can be happy with and excel in? This issue will discuss the employer-to-classroom relationship, the importance of these types of learning experiences, programs excelling in these areas and what those who’ve benefited from these learning experiences have to say.
