Wanted: Basic Skills

Found in: motivating students

I researched the wages and background requirements for a variety of jobs to share with my students. All the best-paying high school diploma jobs require testing for placement on the hiring list and these tests focus on the basic skills students are expected to learn.

I explained to my students that employers want to know a worker can be trained to do a job. If students can prove they paid attention and learned in school, that's pretty good evidence that they will learn the skills needed on the job. When students hear this, they become more enthusiastic about their lessons.
