    options using online career information AND hands-on activities (meeting employers, job shadowing, career mentors, work experiences, etc.)

    Career Planning & Management Defining own goals & plans for pursuing careers, postsecondary ed, &

    other life goals

    Developing career & college readiness skills

    Making informed decisions about secondary courses, in & out-of-school activities and postsecondary ed SEL Skills

    CCR Defined

    College Readiness relates to whether one possesses the cognitive skills needed to successfully complete a post-secondary program or degree.

    College Readiness relates to both ones academic competencies as well as their belief -self-efficacy in being able to engage in those competencies.

    Career Readiness relates to whether one is entering college with a purpose do they have a plan for how a post-secondary program or degree will leverage ones career and life goals.

    SEL Readiness relates to ones beliefs about their competencies and career decision-making skills as well as whether and to what extent they are developing social capital and are able to manage stress and health.

    Career Readiness relates to whether one can (a) identify their skills, interests, and values, (b) identify occupational goals and post-

    secondary pathways to achieve those goals (c) in part, identify the SEL skills needed to be

    employable.

    Importance of Malleability

    Lots of SEL-related terms are being used including:

    Self-efficacy Grit Perseverance Resiliency Emotional intelligence

    Issue is whether and to what extent the SEL domains are malleable that is open to change within educational settings
