Literacy is important to career and technical education (CTE) teachers, who strive to integrate core academic and cognitive skills and knowledge into their classrooms. There is little question that educators need to continually address literacy within CTE. Rather, the issue for many CTE teachers and administrators becomes how to effectively implement literacy strategies in the classroom for maximum impact. Based on CTE teachers involved in a literacy study conducted by a research team at Cornell University through the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education (NRCCTE), evidence shows that teacher confidence is low regarding the integration of reading and reading strategies within CTE. This article looks at how teachers can boast their students' reading success by raising their own confidence in the implementation of CTE reading strategies. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
