Abstract: "Hard skills" are important to getting a job. "Soft skills" are important for keeping a job. We can help our students qualify for and retain jobs with family sustaining incomes if we help them improve their soft, work readiness skills. The primary focus of this session is to explore a wealth of resources, strategies, and activities for infusing soft skills into your ABE, ESL, GED®, and AHS classrooms. Many of these resources have been developed by your colleagues in other states.
