Selina Chan's curator insight, March 21, 2016 6:48 AM

1. Do you agree with what the author says?

  • Yes, I agree with what the author says.

 

2. Do you foresee things to be different in future?

  • Yes, I id. They are planning more new stuffs to the future and  they focused learning communities that fit within and enhance high school systems, allowing NAF to become an integral part of a plan for higher achievement at low cost.

 

3. What kind of influence would such an implementation have?

  • This instructional strategy provides students with a well-rounded skill set that goes beyond academics and includes the soft skills needed to succeed in college and the working world. NAF’s approach to work-based learning is centered on a continuum of work-based learning experiences beginning with career awareness activities, progressing to career exploration activities, and culminating in career preparation activities, including internships. Businesspeople guest speak in classrooms, host college and career skills workshops, and take part in mock interviews. Students have the opportunity to tour worksites, network with, and shadow business professionals. Work-based learning culminates in an internship that allows students to apply their classroom skills and learn more about what it takes to succeed.

 

4. Who benefits from it?

  • Businesspeople and community leaders volunteer on local advisory boards to play an active role in developing their future workforce by shaping talent in high school. Advisory board members collaborate with educators to inform curricula and help organize work-based learning activities. Advisory boards give students the opportunity to build relationships with mentors early and learn from successful adults.

 

5. Is it truly fool proof?

  • Yes.
