Hopefully, you are all well rested after the Superbowl and Valentine’s Day Weekend. This week we are only sharing two resources to help you ease into the week. They both align with the Student Development section of the Taxonomy of Transition Programming. Please make sure to see the upcoming events at the bottom as there are a lot of great ones coming soon, including the Ohio Graduation Pathways and Special Education which is being co-hosted by us and Region 9.

InfOhio Career Exploration and Planning
The video above talked about how important it is to have students do self and career exploration. This is a great resource that has many resources to help students do just that. It is organized into the stages of career development (Career Awareness K-5, Career Exploration 6-8, and Career Planning 9-12), which shows the importance of getting students started early. Some of the resources are also great pieces of informational text that can be embedded into lessons. This is a great way to engage students based on their Transition PINS in their ELA class. Resources also address many of the activities listed in the Student Development section of the Taxonomy. Some examples include work ethic, initiative, and helping students upgrade their skills.
