Graphic Organizer/Worksheet, Other


Directions are included in the body of the worksheet. This worksheet assists students to explore meaningful career interests and preferences. Students begin to evaluate their unique skills and strengths. By utilizing this list of verbs, facilitators can engage the student, provide an opportunity for introspection (self-awareness) and assist students to identify the impact of their personal accomplishments in relationship to choosing meaningful jobs. Job choices, factor into the student's final selection as to what career they decide to research for completing a Job Shadow experience. The job shadow experience in the community takes 3 to 4 hours of time for the student to observe a job of interest (w/approximately 15 min or less for questions). This list of words strikes up conversations that are vocational in purpose. The accomplishment becomes expanded, elaborated, and linked to similarities that may develop into a pattern of preferences. Key ideas are added to a student's portfolio. Optional: Game: how many contributions can we locate in your accomplishments (predict # & total up at the end #). Instructor's note: most students underestimate what they have accomplished. The original list of word were reduced and revised. The original author of this list of words could not be located (out of print?).
