Last week 5H discussed what kind of classroom jobs were needed to help keep our classroom running smoothly and clean. We talked about how you get jobs in the “real world.” Some ideas were; “You take a test.” “You do what you like.” “You ask for the job.” There was more discussion about how some jobs require specific skills or training, how you needed to apply for a job and have an interview. On Friday the students read through the 5H Help Wanted Classified Ads. They all chose two jobs to apply for. The application included reasons they though they were the right person for the job including what skills they had, their strengths and weaknesses.
After much consideration, interviews and job expectation discussion we now have 13 new employed students in 5H.
