Overview: It is never too soon to think about the future! Students, in just a few short years, will become life long learners and workers; it is important for them to know themselves, their abilities, and their interests in order to fulfill their working potential. This unit will start young people thinking of jobs they might find satisfying, what they can do now to start to get the skills needed for the job, and what education and skills will still be needed.
Graphic organizers to go with the unit are the following:
The Job Selection Charts
The Resume Guide and Form
Letter Form (For students needing more structure.)
Internet Sites - Any that fall under the heading of the job selected - chef, engineer, construction worker, doctor, coach, etc.
