This week, we will begin a discussion of different career strands. Students will watch video clips about different career clusters embedded in the curriculum standards. We will also take advantage of the opportunity to discuss various sources of information and where you might find information on a specific career.
Let's start by watching a couple of classic clips from the old show "What's My Line?" where the panel tries to guess the career or line of work of the guest.
