Lesson 10.2

 

Warm-Up 10.2:  

     Write a Frayer Model for the term, "Predict."

 

Classwork 10.2:

     The number one thing to remember with the career essay is that you must choose a career you actually choose.  You cannot choose a career where someone else has to choose you.

 

Good Examples:  

  • Lawyers go to law school and become lawyers, they choose to be lawyers.  You could choose to be a lawyer.
  • Nurses go to college for two to six years to become different types of nurses.  You could choose to be a nurse.

 

Bad Examples:  

  • Football stars are chosen by coaches and scouts.  You don't get to choose to be a professional football player, they choose you.
  • Musicians are chosen by agents and managers.  You don't get to choose to be a musician, they choose you.

 

Choose a three careers you would like, and that follow the rules.  Submit these careers for approval by your teacher.

 

Notes:  Career essay requirements.

  • Job Description
  • Education Required
  • Requirements of position
  • Why you want the position
  • Why you would be hired for the position 

 

Homework 10.2:

     Visualize yourself as an adult.  Write 5 - 7 sentences, or 3 - 5 sentences with a picture.

Lesson 10.3

 

Warm-Up 10.3:  

      Every job requires education.  Some jobs train you with "on-the-job" training.  Other jobs, you have to go to college or technical school to be trained.  Why do you think people who go to college make more than people that don't?

 

Classwork 10.3:

     Read:  http://howtoedu.org/college-facts/how-much-more-money-do-college-grads-make/

 

     Research how much money you'd make in your career for your career essay.  What would a regular workday be like?  Take notes and cite your sources in MLA format.

 

Notes:  What do employers look for in employees?

 

Homework 10.3:

     Do you think you would make a good employee?  Why or why not?  Write 5 - 7 sentences.

Lesson 10.4

      Draw a comic of yourself working your future job.  Draw three frames, write a sentence for each frame.

Homework 10.4:

 

Most people don't buy homes that cost more than they make in about five years.  Multiply your potential salary by five, and pick what type of home you'd like.  Use for sale house ads to figure what you could afford.  Write 5 - 7 sentences about what you'd like.  Remember, even though you 5 years of pay might buy the house, you still need to eat while you live there - paying off a home can take between ten and thirty years!
