This Issue Brief explores the key role CTE programs can play
in increasing adolescent literacy engagement and achievement.
High-quality CTE programs expose students to rigorous

develop their literacy skills. CTE teachers integrate contentarea
reading and writing strategies to aid students’ learning,
and courses provide numerous enrichment activities to help
students apply higher-level literacy skills to their interests
and future goals. November 2009 ACTE is the sole source for this product.
