My students are in a special education self contained classroom. We try to incorporate as many real life applications as possible.
On Mondays, students fill out an application with the top 3 jobs they would like for the week. Each student ends up being assigned 2 jobs. (We have a small population of students) Students pick an application up during their morning work time. They also can take the class job card to help them fill out the application. The cards include ideas of why they want to job to help them in the beginning of the year. As the year gets going they usually can come up with reasons on their own. I then decide what jobs they will have, rotating them out and making sure they do not pick up the same card each week.
