Elliot, Jack
Career and Technical Education Research, v32 n1 p3-7 2007
In this address, ACTER President Jack Elliot states that Career and Technical Education (CTE) is the premier educational delivery system in the world. It addresses all learning styles by employing pedagogical strategies that embrace all of the multiple intelligence areas and incorporate the current knowledge in brain-based research. He discusses several historical, sociological, economic, political, and legislative points to make his case. He stresses the impact CTE can and does make in teaching academics using integrative methodologies and thereby enhancing learner achievement. CTE educational strategies are utilized in the top 30 academic schools in America. Elliot concludes that CTE employs the best teaching strategies to reach all students, in all classes, everyday, if learning and retention are the outcomes. (Contains 2 figures.)
