Our 7th grade students recently completed an interest survey. Today I went into classes and talked about goals, interests, and multiple intelligence. I started the conversation by asking them to define each of the 3 words. Here are 2 of the posters:
Then I had them complete worksheets to help them identify their goals, interests and "smarts." This is just one of the worksheets I had the students complete.
When they were done with the worksheets and we discussed what they wrote, I also used some task cards where I had them Think-Pair-Share.
It was a great lesson and know I know they are ready to work on their career research, which they will begin next week. Tomorrow, however, we will talk about college.
