These reading instructional materials (Reading Strategy Power Point presentations and supporting Guidebooks for Facilitators) were developed in response to a concern with the low reading skills of many Career and Technical Education (CTE) students. Further, the reading strategies incorporated in these materials were selected for their proven effectiveness with students from a variety of backgrounds, and in particular, with students in selected CTE programs in Pennsylvania through a research and development project conducted by the Temple University Center for Professional Development in Career and Technical Education funded by the Pennsylvania State Department of Education Bureau of Career and Technical Education(Wichowski & Garnes, 2003-04).
