CTE AT THE CORE: PATHWAYS TO CAREER AND COLLEGE READINESS

Willard R. Daggett, Ed.D., Founder and Chairman, International Center for Leadership in Education

Introduction: Ed Shafer, Director of CTE Technical Assistance Center of NY

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) address college and career readiness – not college or career readiness. The CTE community is poised to be the leaders of curriculum integration in our schools. In order to meet this challenge, Career and Technical educators should have a vision of the world their students will encounter. Dr. Daggett will describe what CTE can do to provide authentic educational experiences for all students while ensuring that they leave our programs prepared for future success.

THE IMPORTANCE OF A CREDIT REPORT AND SCORES TO THE CONSUMER AND ENTREPRENEURS FOR BUSINESS EDUCATORS AND VIRTUAL ENTERPRISE EDUCATORS

Albert Shanker Hall

Douglas Young, Director of the Center for Economic and Financial Education for the Council for Economic Education (CEE)

A bad credit report and score can cost you big bucks in your business and personal life. A lesson will be presented on credit reports and scores. We will unravel the mystery of these two terms which impact us each and every day. The lesson from their publication “Entrepreneurship Economics” will be a lynchpin for looking at other free resources including workshops, videos on basic personal finance and economic terms, and over 1000 other lessons from our online resource EconEdLink. All lessons can be tied to the New York State Common Core Standards and can be aligned to Bill Daggett’s model, Rigor and Relevance.
