TODAY'S THEME IS
#ClassroomToCareer

Have students ever asked you, "Why do I need to learn this?" Take time to show them how classroom content connects to careers in our economy.

THREE WAYS YOU CAN PARTICIPATE TODAY

1)  Have your students create dream boards that link their school experience to their future plans. These feature a photo or drawing of the student, surrounded by information each student writes about their talents/skills, favorite subjects, and future college and career interests.


2) Share your personal education and career journey with your students. 

3)  What content or skills that you learned in high school do you use in your job now? Share on social media with #ClassroomToCareer!
PATHWAYS BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL

Each day this week, we'll share #beyondhighschool journeys of local alumni, plus their expert insights about exploring college and career opportunities! Consider sharing these printable pages with your students each day of DiscoverU: Classroom to Career Day insights and more stories from former students.


NICOLLETTE'S ADVICE FOR STUDENTS:

" Don't feel pressured to go straight into a four-year college or university. There's a lot more pros to community colleges and technical schools that I don't think people talk about enough. Also, don't think college is limited to associate and bachelor's degrees. Consider professional technical options and apprenticeships if you're interested and (shameless plug) get connected to an Education Advocate to support you in this exploration along the way!"
