International Paper grant will fund a CTE lending library  

 

Funds will be used to get program-specific literature for students

 

A $1,500  International Paper Co. grant will be used this coming school year by Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) to ensure students will have books to read related to their career of choice.

The grant, which was authored by the Capital Region BOCES Grants Service, will be used to create a lending library in selected classrooms at CTE.

Hundreds of books will be purchased for the start of the 2017-18 school year that correlate to specific careers taught about in CTE classrooms, for example “The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil” by Philip Zimbardo. That tome will be read by criminal justice students while another book, “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova, will be read by nurse assistant students in CTE’s two-year sequence of health careers program. These books are fictional novels that portray the life of characters that relate the appropriate CTE program.

“Students will borrow books as they are discussed in their program and their integrated English classes,” said CTE administrator @Denise Pallozzi, adding “providing these additional literary resources to students will enrich their understanding of the career of their choice and strengthens their literary skills.”
