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.
Students will learn about the Decision-Making process in Chapter 4 and choose a career to pursue. We will use the Media Center along with online resources to research job responsibilities, salary, and education required. Chapter 5 will offer more insights into planning a career along with goal setting.
