In Demand: Resources for Career Preparation and Career Awareness
Students at Zane State College worked with their community partner, the Appalachian Ohio P-20 Council (AOP-20), to develop a centralized source of quality learning resources that area educators can use in the classroom to enhance career awareness for students in grades Pre-K to 12. In 2014, the State of Ohio passed legislation that focused on career preparation and exploration in all grade levels and AOP-20 has identified the need for career preparation resources that are easily accessible to educators, parents and students.
Zane State students surveyed educators in the community to identify quality resources that educators can use to support career preparation skills and/or awareness; evaluate each resource to ensure that it is a quality resource and to identify the age/developmental stage of the student that will most likely benefit from the resource; compile a list of career preparation learning resources; present their findings to the community partner; and share the resources with the community at a local science-fair type event.
