Discussion for Career Pathways: A Goal Directed Instructional Design Plan
Teresa Madyun (Student)
Great descriptions of the various career paths for students. I love the use of online links to enhance the lesson. Clearly describes the problem and what NET’s will be covered. Lesson will give students a good grasp of career options available. I totally plan to use this lesson for my students.

This is such an important topic to get kids thinking about early. The topic should be inherently motivating (maybe not to 8th graders, yet). It addresses several learning styles and instructional strategies. I found the focus on transferable knowledge and skills an important point stated as a need and goal in addition to focusing on specific jobs. Allowing students to work in groups allows for more discussion, exploration, and reflection than if doing assignment alone. I like the use of a spreadsheet or table to summarize and apply their knowledge rather than paper and pencil. It allows for quick revisions as group discussion progresses. I would have liked to have seen an example of what career information the students were provided to classify.
A link on the www.mich.gov site to a PDF file was broke.

This lesson was highly engaging and meaningful for my 8th grade students. There is some preparation involved. You need to look up descriptions for the Career Pathways and make sentence strips for that part of the activity. The websites provided are high quality and easy to use.
