******FINALLY A MANAGING THE CLASSROOM BLUEPRINT GUIDE TO INTEGRATE CAREER READINESS INTO THE CLASSROOM!******
The first curriculum guide Managing the Classroom has 134 pages and I have outlined responsibilities of each job position that I employ in my classroom. I wrote each position in a similar style to a job description that one might find posted on a company website so that each feels like a real business position. Some positions are more intensive than others, so in certain descriptions I have added examples of what a student in that position might say and do as part of their job. It is important for you to review the responsibilities of these positions with the students. I use the classroom job positions model and it has been working effectively for years to parallel to the real-world roles. Positions include:
• The Boss/ Business Manager/ Teacher
• Communication Managers (newly added!)
• Assistant Managers
• Project Managers
• Quality Assurance Managers
• Marketing Managers
• Transition Managers
• Attendance Managers
• Scribe Manages
