CTE High-Quality Framework: Standards-aligned and Integrated Curriculum
Standards-based, collaboratively developed curriculum is the backbone of high-quality CTE programs of study. For this reason, Standards-aligned and Integrated Curriculum is one of ACTE’s 12 elements of high-quality CTE within the Quality CTE Program of Study Framework.
The Standards-aligned and Integrated Curriculum element of ACTE’s quality framework includes seven criteria that address the development, implementation, and revision of program of study curriculum, including the relevant knowledge and skills taught in the program and the standards on which they are based.
This course discusses the seven criteria as well as practical strategies in applying the criteria to develop standards-aligned and integrated curriculum. The course also includes success stories and curated resources to help CTE practitioners develop and implement high-quality curriculum.
