Secondary educators across Lebanon County, Pennsylvania developed lesson plans to integrate the Pennsylvania Career Education and Work Standards with the content they teach. This work was made possible through a partnership between the South Central PA Workforce Investment Board (SCPa Works) and Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 (IU13) and was funded by a Teacher in the Workplace Grant Award from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry. This lesson plan was developed by one of the talented educators who participated in this project during the 2018-2019 school year.
All too often it is not just a language problem that prevents international students from communicating clearly with their professors. Some of the communication gap might be due to lack of knowledge of email conventions that American professors take for granted that their students will use. Such conventions include the use of formal language, the inclusion of a thank you phrase at the end of the message, and the kindness when making requests of the teacher. It is useful when teaching international graduate students to go over the expectations for email use between the student and professor. Asking the students to read a bit about email etiquette before class and then doing the following worksheet in class will help.
With e-pals, students develop real-life writing and social experiences, learn the format of a friendly letter and parts of an e-mail message, and discover other cultures, languages, and geographic areas.
This course is designed to provide teachers with the skills and competencies needed to both incorporate information and communications technology (ICT) in their teaching as well as to use it for their professional development.
The course covers a wide range of thematic areas, from basic computer use and maintenance (including hardware, software, applications and troubleshooting) through to internet, email, and social media in the educational context. Through the course, teachers will develop the skills to understand, evaluate and operationalize ICT within the context of related national educational policies, integrate ICT in education from a pedagogical perspective, manage learners’ project-based learning (PBL) activities in a technology-enhanced environment and even integrate ICT into the curriculum.

This three-part activity is designed for college-level intermediate Spanish classes with specific reference to Spanish-English bilinguals. Section one facilitates a review of Spanish grammar (e.g., article-noun agreement, accent and spelling/pronunciation rules), while also raising cultural awareness (e.g., stereotypes). Section two situates the lesson in business marketing themes and vocabulary by addressing slogans and logos. The student is asked to create their own design and to avoid grammatical errors and stereotypes. Finally, in section three, the student will compose a formal email to the "marketing manager" in order to discuss the shortcomings of the design of the original merchandise and to introduce their own design improvements.

Students will correctly key specific documents that have previously been taught by using a simulation provided from a Computer Applications and Keyboarding textbook. This lesson is not specific to a particular textbook, however, the example provided is from the Century 21 Computer Applications and Keyboarding Textbook, 8th edition. Simulations give students a real-world practice and by adding project management techniques, students can practice working together to complete a long assignment. The class should be divided into teams of 3-4 students. They will choose a group leader and then complete the person responsible column on the provided pdf handout. Students should assess the qualities that each bring to the table and use that to their advantage. Once this has been done, they should decide on the due date for each job and list the date in the completed column and, finally, who will be editing/proofreading the document before the group leader submits for grading. Students are allowed to use their notes and the FBLA format guide, which can be found on the FBLA-PBL.org website, for this project.
