The LearnDoEarn Classroom Experience – High School Curriculum

The LearnDoEarn Classroom Experience centers around engaging informal curriculum that takes only a few hours a year to deliver. LearnDoEarn motivates pre-teens and teens by presenting shocking data about the competitive worlds of college admissions and job acquisition that create ‘uh-oh' moments, motivating learners to work harder to prepare for their futures. The product was designed for traditional learning formats such as typical classrooms, and can be purchased in the form of a LearnDoEarn Classroom Materials Kit, which includes:

• age-appropriate, graphic-rich PowerPoint classroom curriculum modules for individuals in middle school (grades six through eight) and high school (grades nine through twelve), provided on a reusable LearnDoEarn flashdrive that includes a number of printable worksheets and reward credentials

LearnDoEarn high school curriculum is divided into three related messaging areas:

World Class Students offers seven curriculum units that focus on academic achievement and college/career readiness with some emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and the relationship of those subjects to career choices outside of STEM fields. Students learn, for example, that mathematics is the clearest predictor of college degree attainment. World Class Students presentations repeat and expand on the academic achievement messages delivered in the LearnDoEarn ‘Ready for High School’ curriculum units, describe the competitive worlds of college and work, and present an unequivocal roadmap defining courses to be taken, grades to be earned, numbers of hours of homework to do, and behaviors and attitudes to be practiced and acquired.

School Counts makes clear connections between academic performance and the ability to succeed in the world of work. Seven curriculum units focus on employability and getting and keeping a job. The lessons also describe what employers want – academic credentials and ‘soft’ skills. Teens learn how to write an accomplishment-based resume and succeed in the interviewing process. An emphasis on work ethic and personal ethics and how those traits play out in the workplace reinforces principles learned in character education programs.

Work the Money offers eight unique financial literacy curriculum units, focusing on the relationships between school, work, health, and wealth. Curriculum units identify education and employability as the keys to a middle class lifestyle or beyond, define the importance of delayed gratification and knowing the difference between a ‘need’ and a ‘want,’ explore college affordability and the impact of poor high school performance on college costs, and provide four rules that will help individuals achieve financial freedom.
