TWC Adaptability - 

No matter what job you choose, there are some soft skills that all of you will need.

Today we will talk about one soft skill that we've all had to utilize recently:  adaptability.  We have had to switch from in-person classes to virtual classes, and some of us have adapted more easily than others.

No matter the circumstances, adaptability is a huge asset that employers seek when looking for prized workers.  This lesson will teach that the attributes of an adaptable person can be categorized by their attitudes and actions.

Assignment:

1.  Look over the first page and notice the attitudes and actions of a person who is adaptable.  Notice - among other things - they are optimistic and they let go of things they cannot change (like our current situation),  One important action they do it to communicate to stay current.  Please make sure you are doing that with your teachers.

2.  Read the information on the second page.  

3.  Use all pages of the attachment to complete this google form

TWC Enthusiasm and Attitude

Enthusiasm and Attitude are two GREAT soft skills.  Who wants to be around someone with a bad attitude?!

Read the first page.  It has really good examples of an employee with a positive attitude.  

Your Assignment is the second page.  Each person (see names at below) were once considered failures, but because of his/her enthusiasm and positive attitude, they became successful and are all names that MOST of us have heard of (or you can find by googling).

A,  Walt Disney

B.  Thomas Edison

C.  Whoopie Goldberg

D.  Michael Jordan

E. Abraham Lincoln

F.  Elvis Presely

G.  J.K. Rowling

H.  Dr. Seuss

I.  Harland David Sanders (Colonel Sanders)

J.  Mark Zuckerberg

Email me with your answers,  Type the letter of the correct answer beside each number.  Example:  The answer to #5 is Whoopie Goldberg, so I put "C" for number 5.

TWC Soft Skills Counterpart to Stem

We continue with soft skills with this article about using them in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Field.

Remember soft skills are characteristics of a person that would make them a good employee.  

Read the article.  (The original was six pages, but I've cut it down to two pages since all the answers are found within those first two.  You're welcome.)

The third page has your assignment for today.  You will need to reply to this email with your answers in the following format:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

7.

8.

9.

10.

11.

12.

The phrase at the bottom is "Soft skills equal success!"  (Hope this helps with unscrambling some of the words.)

The words come in order, so if you find "patience" (#3). but haven't found #2 yet, you've missed it, so go back.  If you've done yesterday's assignment, you should know #1.
