Integrating Career Technical Education Into A-G Curriculum

INTEGRATING CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION INTO A-G CURRICULUM By Linda Kang Master of Science in Counseling, School Counseling This graduate project examines the relevance of career technical education and how it can be integrated into traditional core academic content to increase career awareness and exposure in high school students. The history, effectiveness and impact of vocational and career technical education, and the integration of career technical education into required academic courses addressing the standards of college and career readiness will be examined as part of this graduate project. Additionally, a workshop guide created for teachers and educators that introduces career-integrated curriculum and informs about the requirements of such courses and steps for implementation is provided, and collaborative space for teachers to draft course syllabi is encouraged as part of this graduate project.
