Objective: Students will be able to identify personal skills, interests, and possible

forethought, and the importance of the present, here-and-now, are acknowledged,
understood, and learned.

Materials:
-Pen or Pencil
-Career Clusters Interest Survey
-Pre and Post questionnaire
Procedure:
1. Students will be prompted to fill out a short 5 question Survey about future
career, planning, and skill sets.
2. The instructor will explain the Career Clusters Interest Survey, and what it is
designed to do.
3. Each student will then quietly take the Career Clusters Interest Survey on their
own, asking any questions they might have along the way.
4. After the Career Clusters Interest Survey is completed by all of the students, a
brief discussion of the classes finding will be opened up and the instructor will
ask leading questions designed to make the students understand that they are
responsible for the here-and-now (their grades, the classes they are taking, how
each class could benefit and grow their skills, if they agree with the survey and if
not, how to achieve and prepare for what they want in the future).
5. The post lesson questionnaire (same as the pre-test) will be administered and
completed by each student.
6. The students will then reflect on what they believed to be true prior to the session
and after the session to see if anything has changed (or been learned).
Assessment:
The lesson will be completed by having the class do the post test questionnaire, and the
students will reflect on their personal experiences with the class and instructor. At the
end of the discussion, the instructor will collect and analyze the pre and post
questionnaires to make sure learning has occurred.
