4 Skills & 4 Steps

Below are four videos and four corresponding lesson plans created to accompany the animated video “4 Skills & 4 Steps to a Successful Career.”

The implementation of these plans is best done as an entire unit plan for a teacher over the course of a week (four to five 50 minute class sessions).  While they can be used independently, we recommend using them as a complete unit (in order 1-4) for the most effective results. 

A few notes to consider:

  • Playing the original “4 Skills & 4 Steps to a Successful Career” video in its entirety first (perhaps the week before the unit plan begins) is recommended to provide an overarching context prior to beginning the lesson.
  • These lesson plans can be successfully implemented by either the regular classroom teacher or an experienced substitute teacher in any subject 
  • While there are many formats for lesson plans, our goal was to be as comprehensive as possible while also allowing for some flexibility by the instructor.  Each plan includes ideas for adaptations to the main lesson, additional references, as well as ways the teacher could extend the learning and comprehension by going further into the content matter. 
  • Each plan includes an introduction to the material through discussion and aligns with playing the corresponding video.  They utilize current methodology practices including the use of Piaget's theory on constructivism teaching.  In this, the teacher acts more as a facilitator of learning rather than lecturing.  It is an inquiry-based approach with the teacher asking questions and students coming to their own conclusions through discussion and research that is relevant to them.  The teacher acts as a guide working through these lessons.
