What emotion and thoughts do the

words “new standards”evoke


Activity(Instructional Strategy)

Whip Around:

  • Fast

  • One word response

  • Record words

  • Reflect

    Directions: stand, say word, record, sit, next… (quickly)


  • What theme(s) surfaced?

  • What is the value of this instructional strategy?

  • How might you modify the strategy?

Workshop Objectives

Upon completing this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify components of the New CTE Model Curriculum Standards

  • Identify implementation


Objective #1: Why were the standards changed?

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” Winston Churchill

Drivers of Change


Activity: Think Pair Share(Instructional Strategy)


  • In 4 minutes (2 minutes each partner) share with your partner why you think standards should or should not change.

  • Report out

Objective #1


Objective #2: Identify components of new CTE MCS

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”

Frederick Douglass

New Standards- What’s Different

Structural Changes

  • MCS 2005

  • Industry Sector Foundation Standards

  • Pathway Standards

MCS 2013

Standards for Career Ready Practice

Industry Sector Anchor Standards

Pathway Standards

CCSS Matrix

Industry Sector Changes

What I like

  • Unique within each industry sector

  • Organized by careers within the industry sector of similar functions, services, and work environments

  • Action verbs in place of “know and understand”

  • Build from simple to complex - knowledge and performance

    • Fewer, clearer, deeper, reasonable in scope

    • Research and evidence based

    • Aligned with postsecondary and work expectations

Standards Continuum: Standards for Career Ready Practice

Standards for Career Ready Practice

Career Ready Practices describe the fundamental career ready knowledge and skills a career ready student needsto prepare for transition to postsecondary education, career training, or the workforce. These practices are not exclusive to a career pathway, a Career Technical Education (CTE) program of study, a particular discipline, or level of education. Career Ready Practices are taught and reinforced in all career exploration and preparation programs with increasingly higher levels of complexityand expectation as a student advances through a program of study. Career Ready practices are a valuable resource to CTE and academic teachers designing curricula and …

Activity(Instructional Strategy)

Reflection: Think about your current practices.

Circle symbols as follows:

★ = I’m a Super Star

✔= I’m competent

= I could integrate this

 = I need information or help on this

Activity(Instructional Strategy)

Anchors Away

  • Review page 6 (in booklet) for a description of each Industry Sector Anchor Standard

  • Analyze your Anchor Performance Indicator

  • Post your Anchor Indicator to its Parent Anchor on the wall

Review & Reflection

  • Assign groups to each Anchor Standard, # 2-11

  • Evaluate placement of indicators

  • Move misplaced standards to its proper poster

15 Industry Sectors and Pathways

(Pages 6-7 in Booklet)


MCS Pathway Standards

Changed from

Know and Understand to

the use of action verbs that are rigorous, clear, specific and measurable.


Performance Indicators increase in rigor


Academic Alignment Matrix

Name the major components and or features of the new CTE MCS.

Check for Understanding

Objective #2


"Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit."Conrad Hilton, Hilton Hotels

Objective #3:

Identify implementation strategies

Reminders as you review Pathway Standards

1. The standards are not a course outline.

2. Courses need not cover every standard.

3. Course lessons should map back to standards.

4. Some pathways have significant changes, some haveminimal changes.

5. The purpose is to review the new standards and ensure your course(s) align to standards.

Activity: Collaborative Learning(Instructional Strategy)


  • In like subject area groups, review your pathway standards (10-15 minutes)

  • Identify your ah-ha’s

  • Discuss at least 2 strategies for integrating standards into your course/instruction

  • Report out

Standards Continuum: Industry & Employer Standards

Objective #3


Closing Activity: Whip Around

  • In one word describe how you are now feeling about the new standards

  • Compare/contrast your word now, verses the word you used to describe your feelings at the beginning of the workshop

  • Better?

  • Worse?
