With this workbook, students explore the 14 career interests groups, their values, and preferences so they can make informed education and career choices.
Pathfinder helps young people explore their options such as getting a job right out of high school, receiving job training beyond high school, or going to college. It also includes advice on scheduling courses and activities to help meet long-term career goals.
Young people will learn about the skills needed in school and work. They will identify their own skills and discover how to improve them. Foundation skills from the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) Report are used to illustrate the link between education and jobs.
The fourth edition has been completely updated with information on the 14 career interest areas from JIST's Guide for Occupational Information, Third Edition; integration of technology jobs throughout; and many new hands on activities including several SCANS skill activities.
PLUS, Pathfinder can be supplemented with excellent teacher resources: a thorough Teacher's Guide.
