ADVOCACY IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY!
2021 CTE VIRTUAL SHOWCASE for LEGISLATORS
Especially in 2021, it doesn't matter WHERE you live in Colorado, YOU can be part of the CTE Virtual Showcase for Legislators on Wednesdays in February! We need YOUR participation to spread the word about the great things CTE does for students, for employers and for the community!
MANY VOICES GET MORE ATTENTION FROM LEGISLATORS!!!
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PARTICIPATE!
It's really easy!!!!! Use the CTE Advocacy Lesson Plan to help your students/constituents understand the value of many voices! It's all laid out for you - use as it best works in your classroom or workplace, whether in-person or remote. PLEASE include creation of "I am CTE" video clips as part of your lesson. Students (and everyone) will have fun and can send valuable messages to their specific Colorado Senator and Representative on February 10 and/or 17!
EVERYONE can prepare an "I am CTE" video to blast out to social media on 2/10 and/or 2/17!
Appreciation to Lawson Miller & Kim Reiser, Cherry Creek Schools, for writing the CTE Advocacy Lesson Plan. Thanks to Mimi Leonard, CTE Consultant, for revising the Lesson Plan.
