We need to get students out of their seats and connect them to life skills. In my class, they know they have a job task with Project Discovery that relates to the real world and they go do it.

This curriculum allowed me to teach something that I have never done before. I think I would have missed some of the terms and concepts if this material had not been written so completely. It also suggested activities but allowed me to do them in a way that benefited ALL of my students.

Because the kits are inclusive, there is no searching for any materials. Transition objectives can be addressed and met easily. Pre and post test already designed. Love it!
