Career & Technical Education

Dear CTE teachers, coordinators, and administrators,

No matter what form your classrooms take this year, you will likely be adapting to new ways of delivering content. It's one of the biggest challenges you face, especially in CTE.

And yet, CTE may be more important now than ever before. Just as some of the models of delivering content may be challenging to engage students, CTE’s real-life approach offers an option that boosts participation.

The CTE Team would like to offer a resource that may help as you navigate the ongoing health emergency:

Learning how to modify your lessons will be critical, especially this year. But you showed how resourceful you were last spring, and we have every confidence that you will find ways to move ahead with Wisconsin’s students again this year.

If we can do anything to support you—find resources, offer guidance, or set priorities—please call on us.

Your Wisconsin CTE Team

CTE teachers are well equipped to know what and how kids should learn.
