1.)Students will be instructed to complete an interest survey. This survey can be a commercial survey or a free survey on-line. (Go to a search engine and type "career interest survey" OR use one of the suggested links provided in the attachment.)
2.)Once the interest survey is completed, students will analyze the results. The interest survey should give a list of careers that are suited to the interests of the student. From this list, students will choose one career they would like to know more about.
3.)Give each student a copy of the attached form.
4.)Using the Internet or any other resources available, students will find the answer to each question on the form.
5.)One of the questions on the form requires students to list the classes they should be taking in high school. Have students check the classes that are offered at your school and list the classes that would best prepare them for their chosen career field.
6.)When students have completed their career research, each student should present his/her findings to the class. This gives each student the opportunity to research one career in detail, but also to hear about many different career choices.
