Career & Technical Education (CTE) Instructional Materials

Texas has adopted the National Career Clusters Framework and has implemented all 16 Career Clusters. As part of Proclamation 2017, Red & Black developed curricula in all 16 clusters plus two for Career Development (one for high school and one for middle school), for a total of 36 curricula that can be used for over 70 classes.

Interested In Samples Of Instructional Materials?

As part of the Proclamation 2017 review process, we were required to submit one complete, electronic, pre-adoption sample copy of all instructional materials to TEA and to each of the twenty Education Service Centers. In addition, we had to be prepared to provide those same electronic samples to any and all schools or school districts that may request them. Black, who as always was thinking ahead, decided it would be easiest to just create a separate website for the materials.

To access the website that contains samples of all the CTE curricula, as well as various overview documents, please go to our Proclamation 2017 website by clicking here.

PLEASE NOTE: The materials are samples of draft copies for review purposes only, and do not reflect the final version.

FREE! Final Versions Of 36 Different CTE Curricula

Much to the dismay of our attorneys and accountants, FREE copies of the final versions of our 36 different CTE curricula are now available for educators upon request. To do so, please contact Red at education@RedandBlackBooks.com.
