Explore Your Potential. Career Development Project.
The 10-week mini-course, designed for junior high school students in English, in which careers and recreations become a basis for exploring the individual potential of students, contains three lesson plans. The overall goals emphasize communication skills, language usage, interpersonal skills and the development of knowledge of career areas. The lessons center around the 15 basic career clusters listed in the document. In order to assess the students' interests, pre-test (survey and interest log) materials are utilized in the first lesson. The second lesson provides the opportunity for the students to examine the career clusters and match their interests with the appropriate cluster. In the third and final lesson, the students will research career questions for their chosen clusters and write a report and paper discussing their interests and data. Instructional materials include: students' activity logs and interests checklist serving as pre- and post-tests; a questionnaire on careers and interests; an objective test on career fields; completed individualized study questions; and writing skills and vocabulary development activities.
