Slide 2: “I always was interested in designing clothing and thought I was a good artist, but until I entered the Ford PAS program I had no idea how those skills might be useful in business. Through Ford PAS, I learned that Web site design might be a good career for me.” — Ford PAS Student Atlanta, Georgia Slide 3: “Ford PAS is the ‘broom’ that is sweeping out the cobwebs in our educational environment. Through it, we see that our ancient mode of instruction does not prepare our students for tomorrow’s work force (or today’s for that matter!). We know that we MUST change: Our focus must be on facilitating collaboration and relationships.” — Mathematics Instructor Nashville, Tennessee Slide 4: Students working in teams in Nashville, TN Slide 5: “Ford PAS is focused on enhancing a student’s possibility of going to college and being successful in college. The program highlights for students who have not given strong consideration to college more information about the skills they will need to succeed in higher education.” —Barron Harvey Dean Howard University School of Business Overview of Ford PAS : Overview of Ford PAS Why Ford PAS? Goals of Ford PAS The Ford PAS Program What’s New Why Ford PAS? : Why Ford PAS? “At the high school level, well over one-half of new entrants are deficiently prepared in the most important skills—Oral and Written Communications, Professionalism/Work Ethic, and Critical Thinking/ Problem Solving. College graduates are better prepared . . . but too few are excelling. “ “[W]hile the ‘three Rs’ are still fundamental to any new workforce entrant’s ability to do the job, employers emphasize that applied skills like Teamwork/ Collaboration and Critical Thinking are ‘very important’ to success at work.” The Conference Board, Corporate Voices for Working Families, The Partnership for 21st Century Skills, and The Society for Human Resource Management, Are They Really Ready to Work? (Washington, DC: 2006). What Are the Goals of Ford PAS? : What Are the Goals of Ford PAS? Short-Term Improve students’ understanding of postsecondary and career opportunities in engineering, technology, business, and related fields Improve students’ academic performance, mastery of 21st century skills, motivation to succeed, and commitment to lifelong learning What Are the Goals of Ford PAS? : What Are the Goals of Ford PAS? Long-Term Increase the number and diversity of students entering postsecondary education and careers in engineering, technology, business, and related fields Slide 10: The Ford PAS Program The Ford PAS Curriculum : The Ford PAS Curriculum Consists of: Series of materials for use in grades 9–13 20* modules, each 6–12 weeks Modules designed for flexible use in various course configurations *5 forthcoming for 2008–2009 Ford PAS Curriculum Materials : Ford PAS Curriculum Materials Offered via: Print Multimedia Online Slide 13: “This curriculum is wonderful. Very easy to understand as a teacher. You can pick the book up, open it up, you know what you’re going to do. If you need the resources, you can go online, print them out. You’ve got your handouts right there; you’ve got your activity sheets; you’ve even got tests . . . And it’s up-to-date. How many of you teach out of a textbook, and it’s dated 1985? These kids were in diapers then. So we need the things that are up-to-date and that kids can relate to.” — Ford PAS Teacher Nashville, Tennessee Slide 14: Educators attending a Ford PAS Professional Development Institute The Ford PAS Curriculum : The Ford PAS Curriculum The Ford PAS Curriculum : The Ford PAS Curriculum Challenging Academic Content Rigorous Content National Standards Interdisciplinary Slide 17: Examples of Student Work (CAD Drawings) Slide 18: “Our school saw Ford PAS as a way to take projects to the next level—as an alternative to Advanced Placement classes. . . . Real-world work and the Ford PAS curriculum get kids pointed toward college.” — Ford PAS Teacher Providence, RI The Ford PAS Curriculum : The Ford PAS Curriculum 21st Century Skills Critical Thinking Problem-Solving Communication Teamwork Slide 20: “Ford PAS training has provided me with strategies that I can use to help my students prepare themselves for the world of work. The program emphasizes teamwork, communication, and critical thinking skills that students must have in order to be able to compete in the real world.” – English Teacher Nashville, TN The Ford PAS Curriculum : The Ford PAS Curriculum 21st Century Pedagogy Inquiry-based Project-based Real-world Performance-based Technology integration Slide 22: “Ford PAS provides hands-on technological experience for my students.

Slide 36: “It’s very important to get out of the classroom because you can only learn so much about business in the classroom.
