Welcome to Career Orientation! This is an 8th grade class where we will be studying the 16 career clusters. We also try to determine the interests and aptitudes of each student and help them to determine a career direction for their future. This class is full of hands-on activities that are designed to give each student the experience of a specific job in each career cluster. Each student will be assigned a "job" from which they will receive a "salary". With this salary, they will learn to budget housing, vehicles and other necessary items. They will also learn to budget their time as well. This class will teach each student a lot about the world of work while they also learn a lot about themselves.
