Overview

Welcome to the Let’s Talk Science educators’ career resource page!

At Let’s Talk Science we know, as do you, that career development and exploration is a lifelong process that continues from school into the world of work and for some, into retirement. Through their formal and informal school experience students develop an understanding of this fact as well as an appreciation for the variety of career options available to them. They also begin to acquire the tools and strategies that will allow them to successfully prepare for those careers. And they also begin to develop the skills and abilities that will help them progress through their future careers.

Like career exploration itself, this resource section is a work-in-progress. It will continue to be updated with new resources in response to user feedback. We would like to hear from you. Please send your comments and suggestions to educators@explorecuriocity.org.

Purpose

The purpose of this resource section is to provide educators – STEM teachers, subject teachers, and Career teachers – with the tools to help them take students from their initial thinking about careers (i.e., what subjects they like, the type of post-secondary education they are interested in, the general career sectors they may have an interest in, etc.) to a deeper understanding of the variety of careers available and how previous training, on-the-job education opportunities, and personal interests, and a lifelong-learning philosophy, both advance and expand one’s career prospects.

Resources

Our resources are organized by the main curriculum strands and topics found in career courses across the country. As such, teachers may opt to take a mix-and-match approach to use these materials to supplement their own resources and strategies. The resources listed under the “Teacher” column contain some suggestions for using the resource in class as well as some background information related to the activity/resource. The resources listed under “Students” include the ready-to-use versions (.pdf) and teacher-editable versions (.doc). Whether you are a new teacher, a novice career education teacher, or a seasoned veteran, we think you will find useful resources here. Please send your comments and suggestions to educators@explorecuriocity.org.
