Teacher Feedback on Reading Strategy Use in Career and Technical Education

Publication November 2010

CTE teachers were interviewed after completing a semester-long pilot study which implemented literacy frameworks in their classrooms. Themes included developing teacher confidence, building communities of practice, utilizing authentic text, providing initial professional development, making strategy adjustments, achieving framework adoption, and experiencing student receptiveness. In this manuscript researchers analyze their comments and attempt to define what an effective literacy framework within CTE needs to better equip both pre-service and current CTE teachers to incorporate literacy into their classrooms.
