Integrating Career Awareness into the ABE/ESOL Classroom: February 23 - April 5, 2016
Integrating Career Awareness into the ABE/ESOL Classroom is a fully facilitated, asynchronous, online course (there's no need to be online at specific times). Estimated completion time is 3-4 hours a week for a total of 24 hours. Our task here is to help adult students gain skills that can help them attain and succeed in the available jobs that pay family-sustaining wages. This course will help you guide students through a process that helps them set career goals and secure the educational services they need to pursue their personal and employment goals in the changing economy.
Recent participants have commented:
"I really enjoyed this class! I would say that this class was extremely helpful and I learned a lot that will transfer over to help my clients. I really believe that my clients will like the worksheets and career readiness skills that I have learned. I also really liked how as a class we were able to post and communicate and gain different ideas from each other, that really opened my eyes!"
"I am so grateful to have a resource for Career Awareness & Career Development. I liked how the lessons built on one another and I felt very creative with adding my own pre-post lesson activities. This is great material that could be applied to many different student groups from traditional 8th-12th grade high school students, to Freshman Experience Classes on campus, to ABE & ESOL classrooms, to one-on-one personal career counseling. I really appreciate how broadly applicable the information and resources are!"
"I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about how to approach career pathways but quickly learned that there is so much more to learn. I greatly appreciated the options to choose from for activities and will definitely use them. I'm excited to try these new things within my area and see how it pans out."
