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 to research the two careers because they kind of related with my chosen career as a diesel technician. Both the careers and my chosen career involve much organizing, planning and giving orders. Also, the careers need well-educated and hardworkers. Also without these jobs it would be hard for society to smoothly run. Both managers and diesel technicians play a role in our community, and affect how my peers live their daily lives.
