    AchieveTexas Career Cluster Crosswalks

    The Career Cluster Crosswalks housed on the AchieveTexas website http://www.achievetexas.org/index.html provide Texas teachers with a direct connection between their CTE course TEKS and the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS). Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Cross-Disciplinary integration are the focus of the CCRS. These college and career readiness standards are essential in the planning and delivery of CTE lessons. The extent to which the integration occurs is determined by the methods and strategies utilized by each teacher.

  • Quotes

    The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
    -Carl Rogers

    I am obsessed with my hairstyles.
    -Raven-Symone

    I definitely do like change. I don’t know if my hairstyles reflect that, but I don’t like the same old thing all the time.
    -Cobi Jones

    I look back at the looks I’ve had over the years. I’m proud of myself that I had the courage to experiment with crazy hairstyles and some fashion things. Would I do it again? No. But that’s part of the learning process and getting from point A to point B.
    -Christina Aguilera

    I’m undaunted in my quest to amuse myself by constantly changing my hair.
    -Hillary Clinton

    If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.
    -John Oates

  • Family/Community Connection

    Contact local or state beauty professional organizations or manufacturers to come and demonstrate a current hairstyle using the technique that was discussed and demonstrate. This will allow the students to have a real world application and show the result in order to reinforce the lesson.

    Possible ideas:

    • Dallas Beauticians’ Association
    • Paul Mitchell Matrix
    • Texas State Beauty Culturist League

    • Cosmetology
      Students will demonstrate their skills in haircutting, hair styling and long hair design in four separate tests. All work is performed on mannequins so everyone begins with the same model and the same type of hair. Contestants will create one 90 degree women’s haircut, one woman’s and one man’s cut from a finished photo. A display of creativity is seen in the long hair segment of the competition where these future salon professionals demonstrate their own design skills. A parade finale closes the contest with each contestant walking down the stage with their completed mannequins to present to the audience.
  • Service Learning Projects

    Successful service learning project ideas originate from student concerns and needs. Allow students to brainstorm about service projects pertaining to lesson. For ideas, visit:
    www.ysa.org

    Possible idea:
    Students may be able to advertise their new skills to do the finger wave hair style for young ladies attending special events such as prom and graduation. This will allow them to practice the techniques.
