WELCOME to  Exploring Career Decisions!

Exploring Career Decisions is and introduction to the world of work. Six grade students' primary focus is self-awareness and learning about their own interests, attitudes and values.  Seventh grade  and eighth grade students’ focus is on  the world of work and the career planning process. Field trips, career speakers, and job shadowing are some of the strategies used with the course.. All students learn to be creative, while completing activities, using fun apps and websites. Current events are a must, as well, with ever changing business technologies. NC Education Modules is the resource for curriculum.
