Celebrating CTE Month

  • 𝑪𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒆𝒓 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑻𝒆𝒄𝒉𝒏𝒊𝒄𝒂𝒍 𝑬𝒅𝒖𝒄𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 (𝑪𝑻𝑬) 𝑴𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒉 is a public awareness campaign each February to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country (ACTE, 2022). In Franklin County Schools (FCS), 𝘄𝗲 𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿 𝗮 𝗿𝗼𝗯𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗖𝗧𝗘 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗺 𝗶𝗻 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝘀𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝗹𝘀. This year, students in grades 5-12 were introduced to career development content through the Xello online platform. These students can access this amazing resource using Classlink. Xello was built with thousands of hours of research with educators. Students who use Xello are able to align their career goals with their personality and interests. Students can research colleges, careers, and create a personalized student portfolio. By using Xello, students are able to develop a clear path for their future and avoid missteps along the way. Xello puts students at the heart of their journey of self-discovery (Xello World, 2022). Xello helps all students from all backgrounds, abilities, and aspirations become future-ready.

    “The digital design and animation course allows students to get a chance to be creative, and I enjoy seeing their expressions when a project is complete,” says Sylvia Allen, CTE Teacher at LHS. Students learn Adobe Photoshop techniques such as layering, masking, etc. Students also learn voice-over and foley techniques in Adobe Premiere. Students also learn to develop creative works (vector graphics) in Adobe Illustrator utilizing the pen tool. Students also learn camera and lighting techniques such as arc, tracking, etc., careers in digital design, and, finally, storyboarding techniques.
