"Job Now...Career Soon"
Middle and High School 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 2019-2020 school year.

|Students will gain an understanding that:They need more than high school training to have a career that pays a family sustaining wageThere are opportunities, such as ABC Keystone in which the employer will pay for that training|
|Many kids are unprepared for the job market. They have no money saved for post-secondary education and they have no concept of what a livable wage is.|
|10 minutes||Students are handed 2 note cards and a pencil. They already have iPads.On the first notecard they write down their name and grade and the answer to three questions:|
The difference between a job and a career is discussed. Students then must assess the three examples on their card and decide if they have written about jobs or careers.
Using the iPad, Students will then pick a career and research how much the schooling costs to prepare for this career and record this information on the second card. Students who do not have a career will be given one to research. The example would be a High School Tech Ed/Woodshop teacher and how much does four years of college cost?
Competition- Find the career that costs the most. Find the career that costs the least.
The obvious conclusion that students will find is that it costs money to make money. This is a catch phrase.
Then students will then be directed to this website:https://abckeystone.org/Ask, Why have I sent you here? Search the website for a reason.
ABC KEYSTONE WILL PARTNER WITH YOUR JOB AND TRAIN YOU FOR FREE (YOUR JOB PAYS FOR IT). THIS IS THE WAY AROUND COLLEGE DEBT. THIS IS HOW YOU GET A JOB NOW AND A CAREER SOON
