Essential Career Skills
This one-semester course is intended as a practical, hands-on guide to help you understand the skills required to achieve success in modern-day careers. This course has 21 lessons organized into five units, plus five Unit Activities. Each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities. This course will cover essential career skills such as positive work ethics, teamwork, conflict resolution, effective speaking and listening, health and safety, and information technology. You will submit the Unit Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work in the Lesson Activities by comparing them with given sample responses. The Unit Activities (submitted to the teacher) and the Lesson Activities (self-checked) are the major components of this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that feature along with the lesson; the pre- and post-test questions that come at the beginning and end of the unit respectively, and an end-of-semester test. All of these tests are a combination of simple multiple-choice questions and technology enhanced (TE) questions.
