Career connections

Career-based materials for high school students draw on topics from the sixteen Career Clusters recognized across the nation in the career/vo-tech/workforce arena. Materials correlate with these WorkKeys Foundational Skills: Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, Writing, and Locating Information.

  • Feature Articles highlight a particular career path. The Articles are delivered automatically on the first Monday of each month and replace the regular Five-Step article that day. The career Articles are also accessible in a new sub-category of the News section.  

  • Popups with information about specific careers that are mentioned in the daily News Articles include information about what the career entails, what education is required in order to enter the career, and what salary ranges are typical.  

  • Units contain a set of Articles that are all focused on a particular career. A new ready-made Unit, available in the Units section of the Teacher’s Edition, will be released each month.
