Integrating College & Career Readiness in the academic classroom can be easily aligned to your standards. It is best to start with the Six Career Clusters. The Clusters have 16 Career Pathways that are rigorous programs of study to assure strong academic preparation. Pathways create relevance of learning, connecting high school coursework to work beyond high school. Pathways ensure that students will be prepared to take advantage of the full range of postsecondary options, including on-the-job training, certification programs, and two- or four-year college degrees.
The Career Clusters Initiative and the below resources will help teachers integrate careers and academics.
