Developing Literacy & Workplace Skills: Teaching for 21st Century Employment is a research-based curriculum that has been used with great success for 14 years in Arizona schools. More than 1,600 at-risk high school students and 550 adult students have benefited from the program. Over 65% of the program s graduates have continued on to some form of higher education beyond high school a significant accomplishment given that Arizona has the highest dropout rate in the United States, and the county in which the test school is located has a 62% graduation rate. In the pilot program, students made average gains of two grade-level equivalents per year in reading comprehension and phonetic analysis post-test scores, resulting in average gains of six grade-years over the three years that students are in the program. Students written communication skills have often improved so dramatically that it is difficult to believe that writing samples from the beginning and end of a school year were written by the same students. In addition, students have become independent, self-directed learners and effective team players. Their self-confidence soars, and they become more poised. In addition, discipline problems are extremely rare in the program because of its emphasis on personal responsibility. The curriculum is a three-year program for initiation at the high-school level (from grades 10 to 12). The six-semester curriculum is designed around three fundamental changes in the traditional classroom: students assume the role of employees, the teacher assumes the role of employer, and the classroom becomes a professional office setting and an innovative learning environment.
