Each student creates a poster exhibiting their career choices from kindergarten through high school or their adult life depending on where they are in their career planning. The students identify the career clusters and pathways that best fit their career choices across their timeline or pathway. The students become familiar with the career clusters and pathways. They also learn about new career opportunities that fall under their chosen cluster or pathway. The students share their poster with the class, which leads to a discussion of how our career choices from 4th grade on don't really change career cluster, but they do change pathways within the cluster. The students compare their career pathway poster with their "Me" poster (lesson available in Wise Learn, search Me Poster) they made previously to determine the characteristics they have or skills they may need to develop for their future career.

A main emphasis the Verso hiring department and department heads stressed was that students need to be aware of their social media presence. The impact of what they post could potentially help them gain employment or lose possible employment.
This lesson is designed to follow the Getting Started With SAEs lesson. The objective is to move students from starting their SAE project to developing the next level of skills and competencies in the intermediate level of performance indicators. The students will continue to work on their Foundational SAE project based on their career interest, but research topics at the intermediate level. The teacher may choose to only use the Foundational SAE project or they can also include an immersion SAE project that students keep track of their time, income and expenses over the course of the class. The students will participate in weekly assignments for their Foundational SAE and if they are completing an immersion SAE they will keep track of their hours each week. Starting SAE projects in the classroom should be simple for the teacher and students. Minimum expectations that can still produce success for all students would be tracking 1-hour of SAE time per week, exploring one career topic per week, and recording one financial entry per month. A final report or project at the end of the class would also be a minimum expectation for all students.
A main emphasis the Verso hiring department and department heads stressed was that students need to be well prepared for an interview. The interview will determine if they are hired. Having proper interview etiquette will give students an opportunity to excel during the interview process and provide the confidence required to succeed during an interview.
In planning your future, consider your dream career, housing, car, and other items owned. Next consider the type of training or education that will be needed to, how can you help yourself best by getting training, and additional education to meet your goals. Can your dream career only be achieved through one educational pathway? Can you get an apprenticeship? Do you need to join a union to pay for your training? Would a 2 or 4-year school help me to achieve my goals?
In this lesson, students will build towers out of notecards with a manufacturing twist to simulate real-life situations that can happen in industry.
