For over 30 years, the Multistate Academic and Vocational Curriculum Consortium (MAVCC), has been recognized as a leading provider of career and technical instructional materials that help prepare students for a diverse, high performance workforce. But, what you may not know is that, today, we offer so much more.
MAVCC still has quality print teacher and student editions for a variety of career and technical education programs; however, we also offer:
- Teachers CDs with PowerPoint® presentations, and customizable components, such as written tests and competency profiles
- Interactive tests that students can complete on the computer for practice and/or assessment, that provide students with immediate feedback, and that provide instructors with test scores as well as data on what objectives or areas need to be reviewed.
- Site licenses for school programs/instructors wishing to incorporate instructional materials into their lessons on Blackboard® or other means, so students can access coursework from a computer
- Interactive Safety Training Series on CD that incorporates video instruction with immediate evaluation, feedback and documentation; this series addresses OSHA’s top ten accidents that occur on the job
- Taking the Road Less Traveled and Destination Success, two nationally recognized training resources that help educators at the state and local levels develop and implement successful plans/strategies to recruit and retain non-traditional students
- Professional development through in-service workshops and training sessions on a variety of educational topics, including: developing units of instruction, lesson plans, and LAPs; recruiting, training, and placing non-traditional students; integrating resources into classroom instruction, and utilizing instructional materials to improve student outcomes
