Today, children need to see a link between what they are learning and future work. Career Connections offer practical ways for teachers and families to show students, as early as in kindergarten, the types of jobs possible for them.
What are Career Connections?
The Ohio Department of Education is offering grade-level strategies to connect learning with real-world jobs. These examples easily blend with Ohio’s New Learning Standards in reading, math, social studies and science.
All state-developed model curriculums, including career connections guidance, are free and voluntary. Teachers benefit in the reduction of time to research and develop ways to connect learning and jobs at age-appropriate levels. This gives more time for teachers to creatively develop and use them in the classroom. It also is great guidance for families to continue job conversations at home. These Grade K-12 Career Connections are one component of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation initiative.
Model Curriculum and guidance documents will be posted here as they are completed.
