Choosing High School Courses with Purpose
Ayotte, Steve; Sevier, Sharon
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n7 p20-23 Oct 2010
In choosing high school courses, students often seem to focus on everything except preparation for an intended major or career. They consider graduation requirements, weighted classes, easy classes...but rarely are these types of choices preparing students for postsecondary education. This article describes the "Career Companion Guide" which the Rockwood School District in Eureka, Missouri, developed to help students choose courses in high school that match their career interests and goals. The guide includes course offerings, a sample five-year plan and suggestions for extracurricular activities.
