During my high school days especially years before I was endorsed to college, I cannot recall if we were given exercises which can somehow help us develop our workplace readiness skills.
With this new e-book “Embracing Work Readiness in Teaching Language Arts”, I love how it provides great activities that teachers can use to make their lessons on Adaptability, Goal Setting and Working with Others stick to their pupils’ minds. This can be a powerful tool to pique the interest of these soon-to-be professionals in preparing for the Real World and develop the desire to equip themselves for the globally competitive workforce they’ll face after college. For these exercises can definitely hone their speaking, creative thinking and a lot more.
However, I expected to see refreshers on Grammar Practice Section just so the teachers won’t need to scan another book for a review on tenses etc. Nonetheless, the author did great in writing this book. I felt the love and concern she has for students. I also like the choice of words and the simple writing style she used which cuts the complication in understanding the purpose of this e-book.
It is my hope that we can train our younger generation to establish goals for themselves and impart to them its importance.
