Work-related and independent living skills are emphasized in this course through reading, writing, listening, vocabulary development, grammar, and study skills. Students will prepare for statewide, standardized assessments through the Common Core standards or the Ohio Academic Content Standards-Extended. Selected teaching methods and materials will be determined by individual needs.
Each day we will utilize a variety of technology tools in order to increase student independence, specifically student Bearworks accounts. Google Chrome enables students to add extensions/apps that will read text aloud, convert speech to text, as well as allow for collaboration among the class and teacher.
Students will access eBooks and Audiobooks from the Overdrive digital library with the number on their Student ID Card. The password/PIN is the four-digit birth month and day (ex. August 2nd = 0802). Go to the Jackson High School Library webpage to access Overdrive. Log in directions have been attached.
