The CTE Delivery Model is THE premier educational system for all students. 
CTE essentials will give you an overview of each of the four components of this outstanding model, and allow you time to process how you can incorporate each element into all of your instructional units as you plan your program’s calendar.  It will also provide some insight into the many roles a CTE teacher plays in the course of any school day, where to find support to meet those expectations, and how to transition between each of them.  CTE Essentials is truly a must-have course for the teacher who is looking to build a strong program for students.
