Broeker, Arlene M.
Designed for use with secondary students who have explored career paths and wish to pursue a career in business, management, and technology (BM&T), this module focuses on providing work-based learning experiences. Introductory materials include the following: career paths rationale and philosophy, benefits of using career paths, information on linking to what students should know and be able to do, and school-specific information and local resources. The module consists of four activities designed to give students the opportunity to experience some knowledge and skills required for BM&T occupations: marketing and sales; administrative support; executive, administrative, and managerial; and computer, mathematical, and operations research. The module also contains three activities that give students a more indepth look at the BM&T career path. Activity 1 provides students with strong experience in and understanding of all aspects of the industry; activity 2 helps students develop reasoning and thinking skills while focusing on communication and technology skills involved in job application and procurement; and activity 3 is a profile and job shadowing/mentorship experience with a strong emphasis on communication skills. Three other sections include supplemental information for the instructor; 18 annotated references; and student materials with information about the career planning process and student personal portfolio and module activity sheets.
