Online Course: Workforce Preparation Activities in the Classroom:

***The Workforce Preparation Activities in the Classroom: Contextualizing Employability Skills for Deeper Learning online course will be available in Fall 2017**

As part of the Workforce Preparation Activities in the Classroom: Contextualizing Employability Skills for Deeper Learning online course, you have reviewed your lesson plans using the Employability Skills Checklist. Now, share your throughts and reflections on the questions below. 

  • Which employability skills are more typically addressed in your lessons?
  • Where do you see gaps and opportunity to embed the practice of employability skills?
  • Do your lessons introduce many employability skills, jumping from one to the next, or do students have a chance to practice the skills in varied activities and develop deeper competency?
  • Can you do more to engage students in identifying these skills, reflecting on their importance and considering their multiple, transferable uses /contexts?

Once you complete the second session, please share your thoughts or respond to other posts on these questions.

  • What overlap do you see in lessons you currently teach?
  • Which skills were not explicitly included in the workplace preparation activities discussed in the course?

i like the variety of activities for each lesson which also teach across the content areas.  I like how activities can be easily modified for different levels.

With having multi-level classrooms, I like how the activities can be modifies for the different levels.  I like taking real life and making a lesson to fit your students' needs.  I believe that helps keep them interested and in the classes.
