Virtual After-School Program Important Information
One of the biggest adaptations I've had this year has been working with the new career curriculum. Typically the students would spend a lot of time in my 7th grade Skills for Adolescence class on their career exploration, but with everything else, I've had to greatly modify what I was doing, or would like to be doing, in a normal setting. While the new curriculum is designed for students to do the lessons on their own, I'm finding it is still crucial for me to guide them through the various units of career clusters, linking interests to careers, goal-setting, etc. The main task for my class is to complete a career research activity where they will be able to name at least 2 careers they show interest in, tasks associated with the job, training or education needed, and what the average wages are like.
In 8th grade, I will soon be taking over cannerventions! Since the 8th graders did not get these lessons in 7th grade, I will be coming in for some mini-sessions to get them caught up to speed. 8th grade will be working towards finalizing their career and academic plans, which is a requirement for all 8th graders in the state of PA. But don't fret! That's where I come in! We will work together on what your plan will be for HS, and in the spring the HS counselor will meet with all 8th grade students to go over the HS class registration process. If this year has taught us anything, it's that time goes by quickly. It's never too early to start making your plans!
