Does early exposure turn into higher wages later
Students with IEP’s in need of special instruction often find their way into CTE programs and they find high levels of success in these programs. The TIG initiative enables special needs students to learn skills and build relationships between the special education, academic, and career technical teachers. Students will learn adaptive behaviors to improve their confidence and persistence toward completing advanced tasks.
This project is a full-scale integration problem-based event with collaboration between special needs teachers, technical teachers, students, business and industry and area specific experts. Special needs students will learn problem-solving, teamwork and employ-ability skills as they research, plan for construction and then construct a storage-type building.
Customer Service Through Real-World Application
Students will be able to learn skills that will enable them to get a job as they transition to post-secondary. My students will learn floral design and have these for sell to the community. We are also working the FFA students to develop a business. Students will sell popcorn and other items during events and use those funds to help with buying flowers and supplies for the floral business.
