Teaching to Lead

Teaching to Lead

Jan 2015

World-class teachers are the key to increasing CTE students’ college and career readiness. Teaching to Lead (T2L), a research-based preparation program for new and early career CTE teachers, improves teacher competence and self-efficacy and has been shown to increase teacher retention.

Field-tested with CTE teachers in Kentucky, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Vermont, T2L features problem-based learning modules in instructional planning, instructional strategies, assessment and classroom management delivered across 10 days of intensive professional development supplemented with on-site coaching by expert NRCCTE at SREB facilitators.

T2L also helps prepare teachers for other NRCCTE at SREB professional development models, including Math-in-CTE, Literacy-in-CTE, Science in CTE and Project-Based Learning for Career Pathway
