What To Expect

What: Interdisciplinary CTE Modules with Lesson Plans

Homebase: How do we help students make Interdisciplinary Connections in CTE?  By making connections between their outside-school lives, their hobbies/interests, current events, and the things they’ve been learning and practicing in their CTE and CORE classrooms. Connecting these dots motivates students and enhances the value in what they are learning for present and future connections.  Learn how these Global Annex Modules can engage students for lifelong learning now and in the future.
