About this learning opportunity
In the morning you will work on Using CTS Project and Practicum Courses Effectively. You can now design CTS programs to meet the needs of your students, schools and communities by choosing from over 1000 CTS courses in five clusters and twenty eight occupational areas. Additionally, CTS Project and Practicum courses provide opportunities for teachers and students to personalize their programs and access highly specialized learning opportunities. This session will provide an overview of the CTS Project and Practicum courses, parameters for use, assessment requirements, record keeping course templates, sample pathways and time for discussion. In the afternoon you will work on Organizing for Project-based Instruction in CTS. Project-based instruction strategies offer opportunities for teachers and students to personalize their CTS programs. This working session will provide you with the opportunity to explore strategies for creating authentic performance tasks to meet outcomes in the new CTS courses. Some time will also be devoted to assessment and resources.
You are encouraged to come with a copy of the curriculum course document for one or two of the CTS courses you are currently teaching or plan to teach.
This ERLC learning opportunity is subsidized as a result of a grant from Alberta Education to support implementation.
