AMLE | July 13, 2021
The American Student Assistance (ASA) and the Association for Middle-Level Education (AMLE) have announced the release of Career Exploration in the Middle Grades: A Playbook for Educators. The digital playbook and its associated online resource center, the first of its type for middle schools, offer evidence-based best practices for effectively conducting career exploration with students aged 10-15. In addition, the playbook provides a beginning point for various career exploration programs, complete with implementation guidelines and case studies from schools throughout the country.
Many of the case studies featured in this playbook are from schools that participated in the ASA Middle School Career Exploration Grant program, the results of which were important in the creation of this playbook. The playbook's primary goal was usability, with practical and approachable resources that schools can use regardless of their current level of programming.
