Concentrating on Reality Education

Concentrating on Reality Education (C.O.R.E.)

A framework for tools, professional development, and resources for Career and Technical Education teachers to understand and incorporate elements of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

CTE does fit into the CCSS picture, and here is a place to start finding out how!

Professional Development Workshop

The Concentrating on Reality Education professional development workshop starts with local CTE curriculum and walks teachers through the C.O.R.E. process. As teachers work through the process, they develop an understanding of the Common Core State Standards and where their CTE curriculum matches up to the standards, as well as how to enhance existing curricular activities to further support the Standards.
