NOTE: This project was designed for an AVID course. The platform did not allow that selection, which is why it is tied to Career Development. Open the resource to see the specific AVID standards taught and assessed through the unit.
Since students were little they have been asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Too often the answers are limited to the careers of parents or the professionals with whom the student has had some kind of contact: in essence, the standard response of doctor, lawyer, police officer.
This project was designed to assist students in identifying skill sets and interests and then understanding their relationships to careers and career clusters.
Using technology, students take interest surveys and explore both broad career clusters and specific careers. From their research they create career infographics for presentation and display within the school.
