How it's used
Why was the Career Choices series designed in a way that requires the student to use both a textbook/workbook and the online My10yearPlan.com?
How long does it take to complete the curriculum?
Can we skip around and just use certain parts of the curriculum?

Why do we need a lead teacher?
Does every teacher need an Instructor's Guide or can they share?

What if the students I work with are still struggling with basic skills?
