Key Points to Remember In these lessons, students will get a great deal of information – the activities and lessons are just a starting point. Encourage students to practice these skills off-line in their everyday life. Gate 1 can be done with other Gates to Adventure units or as a stand-alone course. Each lesson (e.g., the Holland Code self-assessment) can be done on its own, as well. Consider helping students develop additional topics, worksheets or vocabulary lists as individualized resources for transition planning.
