What's My Job? An Effective Career Orientation Program for Middle School Students.
Shapiro, Ronald G.
This publication offers a career awareness program for middle school students that engages them in activities designed to stimulate conversation about various careers. The program attempts to provide students with information that will help them develop an interest in pursuing a career. It encourages students to observe, listen, and learn about careers from family and other people. The activity is tailored after a television show called "What's My Line," where contestants ask questions of panelists to ascertain what they do. In this model students ask questions of a guest to learn about and ultimately guess what career they represent. The activity provides an engaging way for students to learn about careers, and to hear from parents and a variety of adults about their employment. By listening to others, students learn which questions to ask to gather information about different careers. (JDM)
