Abstract

With the rise of enrollment in Career and Technical Education programs, the demand for English and literacy has increased. English and literacy integration in programs are vastly different from the traditional English classes that students receive at their home schools/districts. The purpose of integration in a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program allows the material to stay relevant to the students’ area of study. The goal is to help students become ready to enter the workforce or attend a post-secondary college or program by being better readers, writers, and communicators within their field of choice. Integration of any academic subject requires a lot of planning and involvement with both program and academic instructors. Without program teacher involvement and support, the integration is not as effective as it could be when relating the academic subject to the Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. This makes co-teaching a valuable resource to both academic and program teachers alike.
