Congratulations! You made it through September and you are well on your way to a great year. To make this year’s experience all it can be, please consider attending a Career and Technical Education Partnership Professional Development Special Assignments in the Marketing Career Cluster.
PD Special Assignments
This year the CTEP Marketing Project is making professional development credit hours available to Teachers interested in participating in special assignments.
The first assignment requires you prepare lesson plans for the second course in the CTEP Marketing Model Program of Study, “Marketing Applications.”
Teachers interested in participating should contact Frank Vento at firstname.lastname@example.org
Frank will register you with Middlesex County College, give you a copy of the Course curriculum, provide you with a lesson plan template and provide you with your specific assignment. Teachers who participate and meet all program requirements will receive a certificate for 2.5 hours of Professional Development from Middlesex County College. (The first assignment is due on 10/26/2012 so contact Frank and register today!)
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Our workshops will help Teachers, Administrators, Guidance Counselors, DECA Advisors and Post Secondary Educators understand the benefits of Career and Technical Education, resources to help improve student outcomes and best practices for curriculum development and implementation.
IT’S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY
