Incorporating One-Stop materials and services into ABE instruction to meet both educational and occupational goals.
*It is important to note that One-Stop Centers are One Stop Systems where the information is housed in one place, while services may be at a different location. Example: Havre One-Stop is located at our Job Service. However, Vocational Rehabilitation and Adult Basic Education are physically located other places, but their information is available at the Job Service.
Note: Activities are intentionally general so that they may be “tweaked” to fit the needs of any ABE classroom.
1. Have student / class access the Department of Labor Website
Give an assignment related to research on jobs or careers and have students present key information that they find
2. For students that struggle socially
Send in pairs to a One-Stop and have them register for core services together
Send in pairs to speak with the orientation facilitator to get a sense of the key concepts covered in an orientation
3. Arrange for a class “field trip” to a One-Stop Center to perform one of the following activities:
Write a resume / do an on-line resume
Job Search (local / state / national)
Job Applications (find / fill out)
