Day 105: Miss Toby’s 8th Grade Guidance Class

In our 8th Grade Guidance Class, students are working on an independent project in which they are exploring post-secondary options. For this project, students are comparing either two post-secondary options or two colleges/universities. They are researching a range of information for their choices, including the subject area that they would want to study, activities that they would want to be involved in, and options to help pay for post-secondary education. They will then present their findings to their class. Students are completing great research and work on their projects! Examples of the projects are below.

This is an additional piece to help further students’ career awareness and readiness. Last month, our 6th and 7th grade students completed career readiness activities, which included learning how to express their skills and qualities by creating “I Can vs. I Am” statements, relating subject area interests to career options, and researching job opportunities for teenagers. Students did a fantastic job reflecting on these career lessons! Great work, Everyone!
