Recently I have been asking my students to make connections between their personal lives/chosen careers and those careers they choose to research in class. I ask them to to think about how semi-random research can be tied to meaning for them, personally. This week, among other things, we have researched two careers in the Government and Public Administration cluster. I would like to know why students chose to research the careers they did and how they "connect" to their own chosen career.
I chose two careers from Government and Public Administration they were a coroner and tax prepares. i chose tax prepares more on a personal than related to my chosen career. My grandmother does this kind of things at her job. she works very hard and works a lot of long hour on taxes. It also has some similarities to my chosen career like you need to be organized also you need stress tolerance. My other career is a coroner I chose this job mostly because I think it would me interesting. the main similarity to my chosen career and a coroner is that they both need to know psychology.
