Build Vocational Identity
Teachers don’t need to look far to hear a disengaged student asking, “When will I ever use this in real life?” Many students wonder if what they are learning in school is relevant to their futures. Essentially, these students are asking how what they are learning is connected to the future workforce they will enter. The World of Work makes the connection between education and future employment come to life.
