Did you know that early career exploration is more than exposing students to career options? According to the Association for Career and Technical Education, it adds purpose to learning, supports self-awareness during critical formation years, and capitalizes on developing abilities to think abstractly, solve problems, and work in teams. Experts have even discovered it to be a very effective dropout prevention strategy.
The World of Work series introduces readers to nationally recognized career pathways, using age-appropriate language, high-energy graphics, and 21st-century skill-building activities. This series of books keeps the momentum going by providing student-friendly tools to encourage ongoing career exploration.
