Abstract:

This is actually the third in a series of three webcasts having to do with the National Research Center's Math and Career and Technical Education (CTE) study [Building Academic Skills in Context: Testing the Value of Enhanced Math Learning in CTE Pilot Study]. In December, Dr. James Stone presented the first webcast where he talked about the purpose of the study and the design of the research, and shared some preliminary findings from the studies. In January, we invited in site facilitators from some of our replication sites to talk about curriculum mapping and also lesson development associated with the study.
