A colleague and I are going to ask if we can do a rebuild of the curriculum for a 12th grade English class for students who have vocation plans (instead of college plans). What are things you wished you had learned in HS? Ideas to get you started: - Interview skills - Filing taxes - How to change your engine oil If you're wondering how taxes and engine oil relate to English ... I can imagine reading about filing taxes (reading is an English outcome) ... I can imagine students demonstrating how to change engine oil (speaking is an English outcome) ... So, what are real world, real life topics you wish you had learned in HS? Share anything that comes to mind ... it is likely it can be related somehow to reading, writing, speaking, or listening.
