STAIR Project – Career Pathways
STAIR is an acrynom for Stand Along Instructional Resource. This is a resource for teachers to teach students a specific lesson completely on their one, or independently. This STAIR include information about the subject, practice questions, feedback on correct or incorrect answers, and opportunities for review.
I am not an educator, however, I facilitate Career Development workshops whenever the opportunity arrises, so my hope was to create a plan that I could use when asked to do a workshop for Middle School students, 6-8th Grade, who are already familiar with how to use a computer and are familiar with internet safety.
This lesson will incorporate doing research, integrating computer skills, language arts, and creativity in order to create an awareness of Career Pathways and how Career Development practices can help the students to create a plan to help them reach their career goals.
Please click here to view my STAIR project on Career Pathways.
This presentation functions on its own with a topic that motivate students to think about their future career by visiting the links/videos. Each career pathway has a list of possible careers and a link to further information. At the end there is a short quiz that is interactive when answering correct/incorrectly. It would have been nice to have a link back to the career pathway discussed as a choice when they answered incorrectly.
When you click on the links it doesn't minimize the show for you though. This can be a huge inconvenience for students. The links work otherwise and provided adequate information for each career path.

This activity allows students a chance to understand the different areas of the career field. It gives very simple lists of careers included in each category and then a short video that goes with each. There is a short quiz at the end that allows the student to know if they are answering the question right or not. The spreadsheet is neat and easy to read. The links work and it flows in a logical pattern.
Within the quiz and feedback instead of just saying "try again" you could include a slide that gives additional information to build the students knowledge. Or maybe depending on the career choice that was given you could give feedback of why that choice might be a common misconception.
Another option that could strengthen this resource is to include a link to the various careers on their names to additional information. This would allow students to dig deeper into the various careers that peak their interest.

Students need to explore career fields to get a since of how to connect what happens in the classroom to real life experiences. I wonder if linking additional sites would help to develop this base knowledge students would need to make an informed decision. You include a number UDL principles to support students. Additional suggestions would include maybe focusing on one or two paths per StAIR so that you may go into a deeper discussion of the career.
I found no problems with your links or movement throughout the presentation.
