With greater emphasis being placed on schools to graduate “success ready” students, the time has come for all educators to take on the responsibility of guiding students through career planning. It is imperative that Teachers as well as School Counselors have a working knowledge of the resources available through Missouri Connections and the Individual Career Academic Plan (ICAP). Consider for a moment, how important it is for you as an educator to know a students’ interests, or likes/dislikes. Would this information help you design a lesson to reach a student? This interactive workshop will provide hands-on activities using Missouri Connections to demonstrate the resources School Counselors and Teachers can use to support career planning with their students. Participants will learn why Missouri Connections is a valuable tool for your students, while also providing a teaching resource to enrich a class lesson. Participants will have the opportunity to explore Missouri Connections; learning how easy one can navigate through the program. During the workshop, participants will be introduced to two assessments, explore several career pathways, and see the how assessment results contribute to a student’s ICAP.
Participants should bring a laptop or similar device.
