Job Skills Stories curriculum, for high school students and young adults, emphasizes the five categories in Pre-ETS: Job and Career Exploration, Work-Based Learning, Post-Secondary Training, Workplace Readiness, and Self-Advocacy. One-hundred stories are presented in five Job Skills Stories Student Books. Each book is aligned to a Pre-ETS category. The stories cover key transition skills like identifying one’s strengths, decision-making, and self-determination. The Job Skills Reader condenses and simplifies content by using captioned photos to convey each story’s big idea. Both the Student Books and Reader cover lesson objectives, so you can teach with the version that best suits each student.
Student progress is measured with the quizzes from the Student Books and Reader. An optional vocabulary quiz is also included with the digital content via the Attainment Hub. Quizzes from the Reader can be used with the GoWorksheet Maker App for additional supports. The Instructor’s Guide outlines 100 lessons with learning objectives, IEP goals, and teaching procedures.
While the lessons rely heavily on the stories from the Job Skills Student Books and the Job Skills Reader, they are meant to be extended with the Independent Living Skill, along with a downloadable PDF activity resource and the Lesson Extension. A great companion product to Attainment's Pre-Employment Transition Solution.
