Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
Career guidance leader Career Key, http://www.careerkey.org, announces school counselors and teachers can now download its new, complimentary College and Career Readiness Kit with career activities. As seen in recent American School Counselor Association (ASCA) state digital magazines nationwide, the kit includes learning activities and some of Career Key’s most popular school counseling resources.
The College and Career Readiness Kit was created by Career Key’s author, Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, NCC , a nationally recognized counseling psychologist and counselor educator. The kit’s downloads cover college and career readiness topics important to school counselors and teachers, such as
- Meeting multiple ASCA National Standards with college and career activities,
- Integrating Common Core Standards into school counseling and learning activities, and
- How to help students choose a college major or training program before graduating from high school or choosing a college.
School counselors are under great pressure with limited resources to help large numbers of students graduate and succeed in postsecondary education. Career Key’s kit gives them ideas for covering multiple national standards in one science, based activity, like taking The Career Key test or learning about John Holland’s Theory of Career Choice.
The Career Key test is a valid career interest inventory based on Holland’s Theory of Career Choice. In 10-15 minutes, it helps students make close personality-career and personality-major matches. Studies show this match leads to success and satisfaction in college and careers through higher grades, persistence and greater job satisfaction, among other benefits.
For a limited time, Career Key is also offering counselors and teachers a complimentary Career Key Test group code to try out with a class.
The Career Key website also offers many other free or low cost self-help articles and resources related to career and college success for counselors, teachers, as well as students and parents. They are based on the best science and practices of career counseling.
