The Road to Your Future Starts Here
Parkway students have been researching future careers in Health class. Mrs. Casler (6th grade School Counselor) had students utilize O*NET, an online career database to research interests and possible future careers. Students used the O*NET Interest Profiler to research two careers: one based on their interest results and another career of their choice. Students were asked following career information: skills/abilities needed, recommended personality traits or interests, level of education, and salary/job outlook.
Mrs. Casler then assigned a Vision Board for students to complete. Somethings illustrated on student vision boards included their inspirations, what was learned in 6th grade and future goals. Student work is proudly displayed throughout Parkway’s hallway.

6th Grade Social Studies and Ancient Greece
The 6th grade Social Studies classes conducted research on a Greek god/goddess of their choice while studying ancient Greece. This research was done in collaboration with The ELA department and the Library department to assist with a deeper understanding of the Lightning Thief book and to learn about the multiple sources available to them while researching. The ELA teachers assisted with teaching students how to create a proper MLA style “Work Cited” page and the library staff helped students navigate credible sites for research, as well as provided many books they could use as another source of information. The students presented to small groups and had to come prepared on their topic and be ready for questions from their audience. The audience was prepared with questions as well as suggestions and positive feedback for their peers. Each student had a one on one conference with their Social Studies teacher to go over the rubric and grade.
