In this curriculum, students focus on activities relating to career, family, and community. To prepare students for entering the job market, they are asked to create resumes using software, and a mock interview is held and recorded with a camcorder for further review. The importance of family is covered by having the students create a family tree using software, and they use time management software to organize the needs and demands of a family. Students also explore concepts relating to the community. From day cares to senior citizen centers, communities nationwide provide resources for the working family. By taking on the role of a day care facilitator, the students use technical writing skills to create an exercise for children. Students then select an organization that provides support within communities; they research it and design a campaign to promote it.
