Integrating CTE and academic subjects has become an increasingly important priority for educators, and literacy—from the classics through computers—is near the top of the list. One of the best resources available to ACTE members is the Issue Brief "CTE's Role in Adolescent Literacy."

ACTE Practitioner-in-Residence Linda Moyer developed the following pre-reading strategies to share with ACTE members. Click each image to view the videos, and read about her experience in Educators in Action.
