What Works Career Choices
Go with What Works: Career Choices & the 10-yearPlan

A Comprehensive Guidance Curriculum

"Some students who thought they were `all set' upon graduation this year totally changed their minds. Although this was disconcerting for them, it showed them how they should properly make career choices and what considerations they should have. They will utilize the process throughout their lives."

"As students gained confidence in themselves and their decision-making abilities, they participated in debates on controversial social issues. This outcome of personal growth exhibited by this activity was very gratifying. Expressive language and leadership skills were utilized and improved, as well as providing the students with a feeling of competence and satisfaction in themselves."

"My students loved the Budget unit. It was definitely `an eye opening experience.' A lot of discussion was generated. I had as much fun as the students."
