Hello colleagues, A student came to me today to ask for help preparing for employment. In our program, we are planning to provide a specialty class focused on work prep and career exploration for English learners. The Integrating Career Awareness into ABE and ESOL Classrooms is a wonderful resource to draw upon in a class for high intermediate and advanced students.
I'm wondering how teachers and programs who are providing guidance and instruction on preparing for work have structured this? Have you offered a specialty class focused on this theme? What has been the duration of the class? Or have you, instead, built this into your regular classes? How have you handled this topic for lower level students? What resources can you point us to?
Thanks for sharing your good ideas and strategies here!
Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
