I created this research project as a way to get my students thinking about their futures and to set goals. If your students are like mine, then building intrinsic motivation and spending time reflecting on their school habits and choices needs to be given more time and intention to help them be more successful. In my own classroom, my students and I have found this project to do just that. You see, most elementary students don't really know exactly what is required to reach their future career goals. They know what they want to be, but they don't know what it takes to get there. Most students haven't really thought about the skills they'll need to build in order to accomplish those goals. This research report gets them thinking about what skills they have now, and which skills they need to start working on now to get to where they want to be in the future.
