CareerKit Project (NYSED/CUNY)
The NYSED/CUNY CareerKit Project is a library of hundreds of contextualized high-quality lessons that instructors can pick and choose from to suit the needs of their learners and program. The kits were developed to introduce learners to careers in ten different sectors, while also building core reading, writing, research and math skills.
According to the CareerKit Project website, “Each CareerKit activity fulfills a dual purpose – the acquisition of career information and the development of language, literacy and numeracy skills that support achievement on standardized tests.” The project includes a table of skills that allows users to find career-related activities that reinforce the basic skills (reading, writing and math) that they are already working on.
The ten career sectors are:
- Community and Social Services
- Education and Childcare
- Hospitality, Recreation, and the Arts
- Food Production
- Transportation and Warehousing
