ACP Programs typically have students gather artifacts throughout high school to represent their learning and growth. Many times these artifacts are gathered in a portfolio format. This particular reflection on student learning is completed by having students complete an oral reflection about a particular artifact of their choice. The rubric is provided for the presentation with the intent that the student is able to link their experiences in and outside of the classroom to soft skills they will need in their future as a student and employee. This type of reflection can reinforce current soft skills emphasized in your district and help student make the connection between school and career.
When talking to numerous departments at Reinhart Foodservice, all department heads emphasized the need for communication between departments and wanting to hire employees who possess excellent soft skills.
For this unit, students will complete a job experience, job shadow, or community service experience where they will observe communication at the workplace as well as note examples of soft skills in the workplace. Students will also explain how they used communication skills and soft skills. Finally, they will present their findings in a PowerPoint presentation.
This lesson plan is designed to enhance understanding and awareness of essential soft skills and employability skills for success in the workplace.
A main emphasis the Verso hiring department and department heads stressed was that students need to be aware of their social media presence. The impact of what they post could potentially help them gain employment or lose possible employment.
While at Verso Corporation, many discussions focused on what a hiring committee and manager/supervisor looks for in their employees. By investigating qualities that contribute to becoming a strong employee, students can understand what it takes to be a competitive employee in today’s workforce.
