Video Discussion:

Tell students they will be watching the video ‘Career Exploration 101’. Explain that the video presents role models talking about why they like their careers and why they find their careers rewarding.

After viewing the video, invite students to note specific things they learned about the different careers featured in the video and to reflect on their observations (e.g., “I liked when the pediatrician said she liked working with children. I wish I could learn more about that career and other careers that involve working with children.”).

Activity Instructions:

  1. Have the students take the Career Quiz on the website.
  2. Based on their results, have them navigate to the Career Clusters page.
  3. Have each student choose a cluster that interests them. Then, have them explore three careers that interest them in that cluster.
  4. For each career that they choose, have them write down three skills needed in that career, what degree they will need to obtain, and what are three duties performed in that career.
