Six Concepts to Help You Align with NCLB
Hanson, Dale; Burton, Darla; Quam, Greg
Technology Teacher, v66 n1 p17-20 Sep 2006
The overall goal of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act is to have all students--100 percent--achieving at proficient levels by 2014. Between now and 2014, states, districts, and schools must take a series of specific steps toward that goal. The law requires that educators focus intensively on challenging academic standards and assessments in reading, math, and science, accountability for the performance of every child, and the guarantee of a highly qualified teacher in every classroom. This article discusses six concepts that can help teachers succeed in meeting these goals: (1) Accountability is here to stay; (2) Data-based decisions will drive the curriculum; (3) Reading in the content area; (4) Integration and collaboration with core subjects strengthens technology and engineering education and the core subjects; (5) Contextual learning in technology and engineering education connects students to the real world; and (6) Communicating technology and engineering education's value in supporting NCLB.
