Dear Parents and Students,

Career Research and Decision Making is a valuable course for 8th Grade students. Each student will research their individual interests for future careers and look into the requirements to reach their goals. Planning for a career starts now because soon they will enroll in high school classes that will be required for college or technical careers. I hope the students enjoy this time of discovery. I will do whatever I can to assist them in their journey.

 

Supplies

Students will need a planner, folder with paper, pens and pencils for Career Planning. They will also need one nice outfit appropriate for a Mock Interview (Guidelines will be given) on Friday, March 24th.

 

Textbooks

I only have textbooks for classroom use. Attached as .pdf documents are copies of the textbook by chapter. Students may use these attachments as an at-home resource for studying or make up work.

 

Chapter Reading Guides

Students will fill in the Reading Guides during class discussion. These Reading Guides will serve as study guides for the Chapter, Unit, and End of Course tests. Please do not throw them away. Students should focus on memorizing vocabulary as well. The Reading Guides are attached as .pdf documents.

Chapter 2 Test- Wednesday, Jan. 25th

Tests are on Skyward. They are multiple choice, Matching, and True/False. The tests are NOT open book or open notes. To prepare for a test, read over the chapter Reading Guides, memorize your vocabulary, practice vocabulary on exploring.glencoe.com by clicking Interactive Activities, take the Interactive Practice Test for extra credit.

 

End of Course Exam

A study guide will be attached as a .pdf document. The exam is 5% of your final grade. The best way to study is to take the Interactive Practice Tests on www.exploring.glencoe.com for chapters 1-9 and 13. You must pass Careers to be promoted to high school. I will also need your "Golden Ticket" education plan signed by your parent in order for you to be promoted. Refer to the High School website - Forms/Documents-Programs of Study to look up courses for each grade level.
