Marketing Education Cooperative Education Manual. Classroom and Training Station Connecting Activities
Ohio Department of Education
Cooperative Education is a teaching method which uses real life work experiences to teach and/or reinforce competencies from the Marketing Content Standards. Direct connections are made between classroom instruction and workplace activities. The activities in this manual can be used to reinforce and contextualize content taught in the classroom and to teach specific content standards through activities at the training station. While all cooperative placements should be with businesses willing to provide a student with a broad range of training experiences, no job can provide all the workplace experiences needed. The teacher will want to assign additional projects/activities, like the ones in this document, to make sure that all content standards are covered and classroom and training clearly connect and strengthen the student's learning. These projects and activities are documented and included in the work-based learning grade.
