Product Description
Over the years, I have found that students who can imagine themselves in successful careers have much more motivation to excel in school. I’m thrilled to offer this series of passages designed to help students learn about various careers while also developing listening, reading and writing skills.

Helping students explore various career options is one of the most crucial steps in helping them develop college and career readiness. If you wonder how to fit career awareness into an already busy schedule, combine career exploration with reading and/or listening comprehension!

These passages are ideal to read to students in first through early third grade. It is truly never too early to help students begin to imagine possibilities! With each passage, there is a simple written response sheet prompting students to consider whether they would be interested in the career field and benefits/drawbacks of the career option.

Students reading at or above Guided Reading Level R (a fourth grade level) are generally able to read these passages and then answer the text evidence questions. I recommend taking time to discuss and introduce any vocabulary that will be unfamiliar to your students.

In addition to the written response page specifically for younger students, five multiple choice questions and two written response questions are included with each passage.

The multiple choice questions focus on topics such as:

★ determining importance
★ inference
★ summarizing
★ recognizing statements of opinion
★ problem-solving

Depending on the level of your students, the passages in this set can be ideal for small group instruction, close reading, assessments and/or use as independent work, morning work or homework.

As students are learning to use evidence to support their thinking, I have them find and highlight the section of text they use to justify their answer.

The following passages are included in this pack:

★ Jerry Carlson: Sports Reporter
★ Cody Griffin: Elephant Caretaker
★ Christina Wilson: Human Resources Manager
★ Kathleen Jenkins: Vet Tech
★ Evan Wilbrooks: Event Planner
★ Hiro Yamashita: Aikido Teacher
★ George Stoffel: Concert Pianist
★ Taiki Goto: Chef
★ Marietta Stevens: Interior Designer
★ Soojung Kim: Translator
★ Tara Hernandez: Wind Turbine Technician
★ Alexandra Wilson: Train Conductor
★ Heath Miller: Glazier
★ Belinda Martinez: Cybersecurity Analyst
★ Victoria Lopez: Oceanographer

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Sincerely, Anne Gardner (NBCT, Literacy)

*************************************************************************************************************************

* Please note: An answer key is included for the multiple choice questions. For many of the written response questions, answers can vary and are considered correct as long as the student logically uses evidence from the text to support his or her answer.
