Soft Skills for a Tough Workforce
Defining “soft skills” because they are required in our TEKS aren’t always defined in the detail that allows us to get it. We’re told to do them, but not told how. We will find them within our TEKS. We will figure out why we don’t teach them very often, and why we should. This module gives you real examples of how to consider way to add soft skills into your lesson plans.
ppt Presentation
Storytelling has a place in translating the TEKS principles and theories and relating them to our students on a very realistic, relatable, and emotional level. By using cleverly timed stories, we are reaching students in a way that reading a text or even using a computer cannot do. We are making the lessons human.
