The Haleyville Center of Technology (HCT) Agriscience program was instrumental in the expansion of Haleyville High School’s Transition Program, Project Discovery: Job Ready, Life Ready. The HCT Agriscience instructor and a Haleyville High School special education teacher teamed to implement classes which enabled transition students to have a simulated workplace learning experience. Students learned life skills and job skills in the transition class. Students then developed life application skills as employees in the HCT greenhouse. Through Project Discovery, students learned personal information such as address, phone number, and completed job applications for the position of their choice in the greenhouse. Next, students were instructed in the interview process and participated in an actual interview. After being interviewed and chosen for specific jobs, they learned the process of managing a greenhouse, growing a variety of plants, how to follow work orders, self-advocate when they need help, learn appropriate versus inappropriate behaviors/attitudes, customer service skills, and managing money. Students clocked in and out of their job duties with an actual time clock. The goal of combining the transition classes with the Agriscience program was to utilize the existing Agriscience program’s greenhouse to form a simulated workplace learning experience which helped students gain employability and life skills to better prepare them for life outside of high school.
