Today’s world requires far more than just a high school or college degree. To better navigate today’s competitive life and work environments, it is critically important that all students develop practical job skills and soft skills before they enter the job market. These skills can help students find jobs that fit them, perform better at interviews and be successful throughout their career.Here are some examples of the job skills and soft skills that PathSource covers:
We have an easy-to-use modular platform for our lesson plans that enables teachers to build a curriculum for each class in under 20 minutes.The process is similar to creating a new music playlist in iTunes. Also, you can select one of the pre-built curriculum templates or use lesson plans that were customized and shared by one of your colleagues.
We have crafted Life Skills Videos specifically for each lesson plan with interviews, advice and stories from people working in various industries. These videos give your students topic-specific advice and tips from real people in the workforce about the skill sets the lessons are designed to teach your students.
To save your time and effort, our lesson plans were designed to align with the Common Core Standards, the National Career Development Guidelines, the American School Counselors Association National Standards for Students and the National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education.
We understand that there’s not a single lesson plan that will fit every student’s needs and teachers often like to tailor class materials for each of their classes. PathSource has enhanced its platform with editing tools so that you can customize almost every element of our lesson plan online.Teachers also have the ability to create multiple versions of a lesson plan without having to edit it repeatedly.
At PathSource, we have encountered many teachers who created and designed their own beautifully crafted lesson plans. A number of them requested the opportunity to use our well-developed curriculum platform to host their lesson plans. We listened and made it both possible and easy to do!
Lesson plans get updated from time-to-time and educators usually don’t have access to the older versions, even though sometimes those versions work better for a certain group of students. On our advanced curriculum platform, we give you the ability to compare two different versions of the lesson plan side-by-side so that you can choose the best materials for your students.
We have created an automation system on our platform to help you get everything done quickly. Simply put a class date on your selected lesson plan and our system will help you make sure your students receive their assignments and required class materials on time. We will notify your students about any available assignments and send them reminders when the assignments are coming due.
Although we have an online platform, teachers can still utilize our content in an offline setting. The PathSource platform includes an advanced custom-printing tool that enables teachers to print only the class materials that they want to use offline. This tool works for assignments, lesson plan notes and handouts as well.
