Product Description:

Updated in 2019, this is a good topic to discuss with your middle school students. Why? If they have a sense of what interests them, you can proceed to map out a high school transcript to meet that goal. It’s like working backwards. What do you want to do? Ok, how will you get there? Colorful, graphic pages are busy looking but engaging. The salaries may change, but you can do some online research to see what affects a certain path. For example, if your student wants to work in or own a restaurant, you can discuss the impact of the last couple years on the industry. If you have a high schooler, this sort of book can open the conversation about their future goals. Maybe you will learn something unexpected! ~Sara

I have looked everywhere for a careers guide/book for teens. This looks like it may fit our needs. I wanted my students to learn about career terminology, but also the different career areas and pathways. It seems that often students have little direction in choosing a career. After going through the book, I plan to have them choose a specific career to research and report on - incorporating writing and public speaking into the assignment.
