The Critical Skills Group, Ltd. has been involved in Field Studies since the mid 1980’s and before the publication of the Secretary’s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) and the School to Work Opportunities Act of 1994.
The work of the Critical Skills Group, Ltd. was profiled in the US Department of Labor’s publication, “Teaching the SCANS Competencies” where Field Studies were listed as one of the richest source of teaching these skills to students. (Teaching SCANS Competencies)
The need for such skills in our country has not diminished since that time; in fact, the need may be greater than ever.
Accordingly the Critical Skills Group, Ltd. is providing this website/blog as a resource for those schools and teachers who are willing to engage their students in such challenging project-based learning programs.
This entire combination website/blog presents the results of work conducted by Mr. Charles Jett and Mr. Joe McKee and published in 1995 as “Field Studies – Challenging Project-Based Learning Experiences.” Copyright © 1995 by Charles Jett and Joe McKee. All rights reserved.
