OverviewThe Career Technical Education (CTE) Model Curriculum Standards publication is organized for useas a complete document or for access to individual industry sectors and pathways. The documentincludes Standards for Career Ready Practice—which describe the knowledge and skills that studentsneed prior to entering a career technical education program—as part of the career technical education sequence or as integrated elements of other course work in preparation for careers and college.Each of the 15 industry sector sections includes a description, anchor standards, pathway standards,and an academic alignment matrix. The standards can be adjusted to be part of the curriculum(grades seven through twelve), provided through adult education, or included in community college programs. The document also lists the representatives who participated in each sector’s contentdevelopment and the references that were consulted to revise the CTE standards.Standards for Career Ready PracticeCalifornia’s Standards for Career Ready Practice, which follow this overview, are based on the CareerReady Practices of the Common Career Technical Core (CCTC), a state-led initiative sponsored by theNational Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium (NASDCTEc):Career Ready Practices describe the career-ready skills that educators should seekto develop in their students. These practices are not exclusive to a Career Pathway,program of study, discipline or level of education. Career Ready Practices shouldbe taught and reinforced in all career exploration and preparation programs withincreasingly higher levels of complexity and expectation as a student advancesthrough a program of study. (NASDCTEc 2012, 2)California’s 12 Standards for Career Ready Practice align with the state’s CTE anchor standards andreﬂect the expectations from business and industry, labor and community organizations, and secondary and postsecondary education representatives from 42 participating states.Anchor StandardsThe 11 anchor standards build on the Standards for Career Ready Practice and are common acrossthe 15 industry sectors. Content for these standards was drawn from several documents: “PreparingStudents for the 21st Century Economy” (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Educationand the Partnership for 21st Century Skills 2010); How Should Colleges Prepare Students to Succeedin Today’s Global Economy? (Association of American Colleges and Universities and Peter D. HartResearch Associates, Inc. 2006); “Importance of Skills and Knowledge for College and CareerReadiness,” from The MetLife Survey of the American Teacher: Preparing Students for College andCareers (MetLife, Inc. 2011); and Are They Really Ready to Work? Employers’ Perspectives on the BasicKnowledge and Applied Skills of New Entrants to the 21st Century U.S. Workforce (The ConferenceBoard et al. 2006).Each anchor standard is followed by performance indicators using action verbs from the BeyondKnowledge Construct, presented in a hierarchical progression of simple tasks to more complex tasks.Performance indicators provide guidance for curriculum design and standards measurement.Business and Finance BF iii
The industry-sector anchor standards have been customized with selected additions to better reﬂectthe needs and special conditions of each industry sector.Anchor Standard 1 (Academics) guides users to sector-speciﬁc core academic standards related toeach industry sector, which are listed in the alignment matrix at the end of each sector section.Anchor standards 2–10 are deliberately aligned with one of the Common Core English language artsstandards, using similar language demonstrating the natural connections between the two subjects.Anchor Standard 11 (Demonstration and Application) highlights classroom, laboratory, and workplacelearning speciﬁc to the individual sector and pathways.Pathway StandardsAll 15 industry sectors contain multiple pathways. In order to be identiﬁed and listed for an industrysector, each pathway had to meet the following criteria: unique to an industry sector has an occupational focus consistent in size and scope composed of similar functions inclusive of all aspects of the industry includes 8–12 pathway-speciﬁc standards demonstrates sequence potential reasonable and appropriate for high school leads to high-skill, high-wage, or high-demand jobs sustainable and viable over the next 10 yearsAcademic Alignment MatrixEach sector includes an academic alignment matrix that displays where a natural, obvious alignmentoccurs. Compiled by ﬁve teams of academic content experts in collaboration with industry-sectorconsultants, teachers, and other advisers, the alignment was selected if it was determined that thepathway standard would enhance, reinforce, or provide an application for a speciﬁc academic subjectstandard.The alignment matrices include the subjects of Common Core English language arts and mathematics standards, history/social studies standards, and Next Generation Science Core Ideas. To assistwith further review and implementation, each academic alignment is notated with speciﬁc pathwaystandards codes.iv BF California Career Technical Education Model Curriculum Standards
ImplementationThe Standards for Career Ready Practice can be integrated with a course or incorporated into severalcourses over multiple school years (grades seven through twelve). The practices are expectationsfor all students, whether they are enrolled in a CTE program or following a more generalized coursesequence. It is expected that all students who exit high school will be proﬁcient in these practices.The anchor standards are the basis for each of the pathways within each sector. These standardsare designed to assist with the development of course curricula and instructional lesson plans; theydescribe what is to be taught and measured. In most cases, the teacher determines the sequence andstrategies to be used to meet the needs of the student population he or she is serving.The performance indicators that follow each standard offer guidance for both course design andstudent assessment. They are intended to guide course work as it is developed. The pathways organizethe standards with a career focus, but they are not designed to be offered as single courses. Rather,the standards from each pathway are collected and organized into a sequence of learning. To meetlocal demands of business and industry and particular student populations, standards can be collectedfrom more than one sector to create a course.Using the academic alignment matrices as a resource, academic and CTE teachers can see whereenhancements and support for both sets of standards can be initiated. CTE teachers can quickly identify academic standards that have a substantial relationship to their instruction. Likewise, academicteachers can specify individual academic standards and quickly identify related CTE standards, whichwill assist them in incorporating application and technology in their curricula and lessons.The CTE Model Curriculum Standards are intended to serve the entire education community—frommiddle schools and high schools to postsecondary colleges and career training programs. A major aimof these standards is to prepare students for postsecondary education and training and to help themmake a smooth transition into the workforce. In order for both the people and the economy of California to prosper, it is essential for all students to emerge from schools ready to pursue their careerand college goals. Equipping all high school students with the knowledge and skills necessary to planand manage their education and careers throughout their lives will help to guarantee these importantoutcomes. Strong CTE programs will continue to provide important educational opportunities to assiststudents as they pursue their dreams and strive for economic prosperity. The CTE Model CurriculumStandards are a resource for educators and the business world for ensuring high-quality CTE learningexperiences and improved student outcomes in the twenty-ﬁrst-century economy.Business and Finance BF v
