Great Resources for Teaching Life Skills

Students can also learn essential technical skills -- from keyboarding to resume writing to word processing -- that they'll need to succeed in school and careers. In the list below, you'll see tools that offer a variety of learning experiences tailored to the specific life skills students will be learning, from reading stories to playing interactive games to creating digital media to analyzing their own personality profiles. There are also handy lesson resources teachers can use to build engaging units.
