Career advice from John Updike and Robert Frost? Pep talks
from Emily Dickinson and Albert Camus? Unusual, perhaps,
but no more so than the idea of using a language arts class to
teach problem-solving, risk-taking, and the work ethic. That's
the approach taken by Career Choices and its supplementary
anthology, Possibilities. After spending a little time with the
materials, you're likely to begin wondering why no one ever
thought of doing this before.
How Possibilities addresses Language Arts Standards
Possibilities is the language arts component in the Career
Choices series, linking 50 selections of poetry, short stories and essays to specific lessons in the Career Choices text. The curriculum
is flexible enough to be used in a variety of situations, and
with students of varying abilities.
