Every fall, CTE Online invites grades 7-12 California educators to apply for our Curriculum Writing Institutes. Each Institute provides educators with two full days of collaboration and exploration time to begin planning a project-based learning project. Travel and substitute reimbursement are provided.
The end product, to be developed and completed by teachers remotely, is a project complete with four lessons from each teacher.
There are two types of Institutes members can apply to attend:
CTE/STEM Integrated Institutes:
The CTE/STEM Integrated Institutes bring together teams of teachers that include one Career and Technical Education (CTE) educator and 2-3 academic educators teaching subjects such as English Language-Arts, Math, Science, World Languages, History, and Social Studies. Note: Teams apply to the Institute together.
CTE Project-Based Learning Institutes:
In the CTE-focused PBL Institues, CTE educators attend individually to write a Project-Based Learning Project that includes four key lessons in their CTE subject area.
There are many reasons why educators brave our 2-day comprehensive curriculum writing Institutes. They include:
We are always hoping for teachers that have participated with us before, but we welcome all curious, creative new educators to our ranks.
California CTE educators in grades 7-12 who are excited about project-based learning are encouraged to apply!
Before you apply, you will want to come up with some ideas for a project to develop.
*Note: The project you apply with does not necessarily need to be the project your write in the Institute.
