Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
A minimum of six Work-Based Learning experiences is designated during the CTE Intro year to provide career awareness and exploration experiences that support and sustain classroom instruction and curriculum. These Work-Based Learning experiences are not intended to be an add-on. Work-Based Learning experiences should reflect a variety of career fields for students to explore their own interests and apply their self-discovery to the world of work. Work-Based Learning is a teaching strategy that enhances classroom learning. These experiences must occur in one or more the following four areas:
- Career Fairs
- Field Studies
- Guest Speakers
- Job Shadows
Work-Based Learning Goal
Connect the community and the classroom by using community resource persons to emphasize both work and occupations. An effective Work-Based Learning experience will:
- Help students understand career application of subject matter
- Teach and reinforce productive work habits
- Emphasize career awareness and exploration
