Career Exploration and Research Project – Teacher Feedback:

  1. “Love Love Love THIS! Thank you so much for sharing! My 8th graders love the activities and I felt like they were engaged with this unit the entire time!”
  2. “This was an awesome product! I did this with my students and I am amazed at the end product! I also really enjoyed how my students got to research something that they are interested in and their presentations to the class were a huge success. They are required to research and find a great amount of detail about the career of their choosing which I think was really great for them to develop these skills. “
  3. “I used this during distance learning for my gr. 8 classes. I enjoyed the easy to use layout and found that it gave me great insights into my student’s future plans and helped them to better understand their goals. As we did this during distance learning, the oral part was a personally recorded video that they submitted.”
  4. “We used this in our Advisory toward the end of the year, and it was really great to have something very applicable to our students’ lives. It kept them engaged, and we ended up learning a few really surprising things about our students.”
  5. “One of my favourite sellers by far. Lessons are always clear, visually appealing, and engaging, this one is no different. Thank you!”
