Teacher Instructions:

Introduce the idea that the first step to making a career or college/training choice is to know your options.  Watching DO videos is one way to do that.  Inform students that they will watch a series of videos over the course of the year and by doing so it will help them gain exposure to a variety of career options.

The second step to making a career or college/training choice is to understand how your skills, interests and personality might fit (or not) certain careers and college/training options.  Analyzing DO videos is one way to do that.

Each time the student watches an individual profile video, they will reflect/analyze on whether they feel the job or education/training for it would be a good match for them.  They will use the matrix below to document and keep track of their progress.  Finally they will pick their top 3 and explain why they would be a good fit.

Suggestion: Use their findings to have a class discussion!
