CALM - Course Outline
Career AND Life Management is a compulsory 3 credit course, without which a student will not receive a high school diploma. You have the opportunity to get 3 credits in CALM as well as 4 additional Workplace Safety CTF credits.
- Personal Choices: Students will apply an understanding of the emotional/psychological, intellectual, social, spiritual and physical dimensions of health—and the dynamic interplay of these factors—in managing personal well-being
- Resource Choices: Students will make responsible decisions in the use of finances and other resources that reflect personal values and goals and demonstrate commitment to self and others.
- Career and Life Choices: Students will develop and apply processes for managing personal, lifelong career development.
These three general outcomes serve as the foundation of the CALM course, and each general outcome is to be addressed. The general outcomes are interrelated and interdependent. For example, processes for responsible decision making regarding the use of resources are also related to career choices. All choices influence and are influenced by the interrelationship of the dimensions of well-being. For student learning, an understanding of these interconnections is crucial, since life decisions often involve the intricate dynamics of balance between many areas simultaneously. There are many professionals that come in to teach the students about their experiences in regard to personal, resource and career and life choices.
