Darche, Svetlana; Stam, Brad
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v87 n3 p20-25 Mar 2012
WestEd, a research and development agency, and ConnectEd: The California Center for College and Career have partnered to develop a framework for college and career readiness. In this article, the authors look at one student's successful journey from high school to college to career, and highlights a career-readiness framework to ensure more students have such promising outcomes. Using the framework to prepare students will require new curriculum and instructional strategies, new and more authentic assessments, and new teacher preparation and professional development.
