New resource - Aspirations Toolkit
The Aspirations Toolkit is a set of counseling and instructional practices and tools contributed by adult educators around the country. Contributors implement these lessons and activities with adult learners in various class types (e.g. ESOL or GED) and at a range of skill levels to foster aspirations, goal setting habits and to inspire them to begin planning for next steps along their education and career pathway. The development of the Aspirations Toolkit is partially funded through a grant from the Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family Foundation with matching funds provided by World Education, Inc. We continue to add tools to this collection.
The tools are organized under the four areas of college and career readiness. One of the tool examples is Keys to Success - Checklist that students and teachers can use to track progress towards development of college and career readiness skills.
Are these any tools or practices here that you might like to implement in your program or classroom? You can also contribute an aspirations building tool that you use in your classroom here.
