The Achieve! Series of Life Skills titles has been developed for teachers who require additional activities for students who are struggling with literacy in years 7–10, and have a reading age of six to nine years. Teachers can readily edit the pages to customise the material for individual students or classes and the curriculum requirements of your State. Some activities are more challenging than others and teachers should read the prior skills sections of the teacher’s notes to prepare their students for each unit of work.
The Careers and Economic Understanding title provides a range of tasks that will assist students in understanding issues to do with jobs, careers and business in the twenty-first century. The units of work focus on topics about the skills and attitudes required to get a job as well as the different places of employment such as private, public and charitable institutions. Students are also encouraged to consider the skills of developing new business ideas and enterprises.
The CD-ROM contains all the pages that are featured in the book, as well as a file of illustrations that can be used for other activity sheets.
