Nice article from Hannah Cho Iriarte about gifted kids looking ahead to their future careers at Chief Brodie Memorial Elementary school in Guam.
Love this quote:
“When a male nurse came to the class, a student asked why he didn’t become a doctor,” Klemm says. Students then discussed the legitimacy of gender biases.
Fantastic example of how students can take an idea in an unexpected direction, especially when teachers are open to it.
Some of my colleagues have created career projects, but I’ve never heard of this:
After months of research, students wrote realistic fiction stories about their careers
I love the integration of fiction. What a powerful way to motivate narrative writing!
