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.

 

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.

The website for other textbook materials and practice tests is www.exploring.glencoe.com

    • click to enter Student Center
    • On left hand side tool bar, Click down arrow to Choose a Chapter
    • click on Interactive Practice Test
    • Take the test as many times as you want
    • Email me the results if you make a 100 and earn 5 extra credit points on your chapter test
    • All extra credit must be completed before the day of the test

 

 Supplies

Students will need a planner, folder, and a flash drive for Career Planning.

 

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.
