Hopefully you now have a better understanding of what the Exploring Your Career Pathway materials include for the various career fields. If you have viewed this online module as a supplement to one of our face-to-face sessions, or you viewed it to learn more about these dynamic, career exploration resources, you may want to order replacement copies of the student booklets or a new classroom set. There is a downloadable order form below. The classroom set for each career pathway includes 25 student booklets and one curriculum guide. Additional sets of 25 student books are also available.
We understand that school budgets are tight and it is sometimes difficult to find the funds to support much needed resources for your students. As we have recently worked and communicated to many in the manufacturing and
construction industries, it is apparent they see there is a need to reach students. There may be opportunities to have local business and industry support your district in purchasing the Career Pathways curriculum materials. Many manufacturing and construction businesses are having trouble finding employees to hire to fill needed positions. This need is causing employers to really understand the importance of reaching students at a younger age to introduce them to careers in those fields.
Reach out and let the manufacturing and construction businesses in your community know you want to introduce your students to the opportunities in these needed career fields. Let them know about the curriculum materials you
are looking to implement at the middle school to let students know about those respective fields. Below are some links to letter templates you can use to send to these local businesses and industries. The templates each include information on each of the specific pathway curricula.
We hope these resources can help you in acquiring funds to help purchase or support the implementation of the student books and curricula in your school.
If you are currently using the curriculum in your district, we have provided live links for the lessons in each of the career curricula in the topics below. You can select the topic and then have access to the live links for each lesson in the respective curriculum.
