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.
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.
We will work in Chapter 7 "Applying for a Job" and the students will have an interview on November 13th. They will dress up according to the professional guidelines. Please see the Interview Parent Letter attached as a .pdf document.
Also, be mindful of the guidelines but realize that these are not "rules". I have shown the students several appropriate options for dressing for an interview that are relevant to their age and what they may have available in their closet. A simple pair of khaki pants, a Villages School polo shirt, nice shoes, and a belt are acceptable as well. I have asked that the girls not wear dresses. Very few dresses are designed in a professional style. If your child has a dress that is of the appropriate style, she may wear it. Please be aware of length and the height of high heels. High heels are not professional or appropriate with a short skirt or dress.
