Course Description:
Now, more than ever, students are told they must be prepared for higher education or a career in a skilled profession. Gone are the days when the goal of a high school graduate was to enter a traditional four-year college program. In its place are several different pathways that a graduate can take to successfully enter the workforce. This course introduces students to a variety of educational and vocational opportunities and helps them identify which pathway will help them reach their goals. The content in this course provides instruction on skills essential for students preparing for college and/or a career, including how to build an effective resume, how to groom and dress in the workplace, the power of networking and how to develop disciplines that lead to success. Why have 21st-century skills become such a focus for educators, parents, and employers? The global economy is rapidly changing, and the educational experience cannot keep up with the pace of the demands in a competitive, knowledge-based, technology-driven society. Students must now develop a level of digital literacy that allows them to compete in an increasingly competitive market. For most students, developing values, beliefs, attitude, and social awareness are becoming just as important as developing academic abilities. To be college and career ready signifies that the student has developed the capacity to succeed in whatever they choose to do in life.
