Visuals for English Learners

We learn 76% by what we see. Ensuring proper visuals in our CTE classrooms, inclusive of people of color, and women helps CTE students make connections to the content.

Integrated Content Language Development is explained through the acronym of SERVE. To meet students in CTE who are learning English, ensure that they have tons of visuals. 


S Student Talk

E Explicit Language Instruction

R Access to Rigorous Grade Level Content
