Adolescent Development

I recently attended a well run Professional Development day for CTE teachers within my school district. While everything we did is student focused and data driven, it struck me that we were no longer considering developmental levels, what can be or should be accomplished at each level. Instead we are driven to have every student at every level develop and maintain awareness that only a short time ago would have been considered above their grade/development level.

This article crossed my desk this morning while I wrestle this point of moving everything down until I can only assume a PK student has a career plan, selected my courses, and begun preparing themselves for success on my TSA.
