Advanced Foundational SAEs
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

This lesson is designed to follow the Intermediate SAEs:The Next Step. The objective is to continue to move students through the research and development of their Foundational Career SAE. The students will continue to work on their Foundational SAE project based on their career interest, but research topics at the advanced 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.

Agricultural Careers and Leadership "Me" Poster

To help the students self analyze their strenghts and weaknesses I have them complete a "Me" poster.  The poster is folded intor 4 quadrants with a diamond in the middle.  The students fill in each quadrant answering why, what, how and what if.  This really gets them thinking about why they are the way they are.  They decorate their posters and then they identify three employability skills that they think they have fully developed and can demonstrate at work.  The students share their posters and then apply their self awareness to their career interest.

CESA 7 ACP Job Shadows
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating

Job Shadowing is an important part of Academic and Career Planning.  Job shadows typical take place in high school and/or the early years of college.  In order for everyone involved in the job shadow experience, it is necessary to take the time to prepare our students prior to sending them out for a job shadow.  Students need to research careers and companies. If students set up their own job shadows, they need to have instruction on how to make the phone call or how to make the request in email or in person.  The ask should be modeled and role played to help students prepare.  Students need to prepare and ask questions during the job shadow experience.  Getting feedback from the job shadow mentor and students is helpful in making improvements for all involved as well as making lasting relationships for future shadows.  And, don't forget the importance of a thank you card from the student as well as the school.

The students create an E-Portfolio using Google Sites.  The students create a resume and cover letter that they include in their E-portfolio.  In addition, the students have to upload six artifacts from a list provided on the rubric.  The E- portfolio is something they can add to throughout high school, edit, and keep as they move toward achieving their career goal.  The students share their E-portfolio with the class once they complete the project.  The students learn how important it is to be able to demonstrate their skills to their future employers.

This lesson is designed to help students move from their Foundational SAE to an Immersion SAE. The students will continue to work on their Foundational SAE project based on their career interest, but they will also be introduced to Immersion SAEs. The teacher may choose to only use the Foundational SAE project to get started, but they should work toward helping their students move their SAE project to include one or more Immersion SAE projects. The students will participate in weekly Immersion SAE record keeping. 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. Over time the students expectations for their Immersion SAE projects can be expanded to include more record keeping and financial entries.
