Title:  What is needed to succeed in tomorrow’s economy?


Helping students become aware of the changes in the job market that will help them in guiding their future careers.

Class Characteristics:

Students are ethnic Chinese.  Grade level they are entering varies from Eighth grade to eleventh grade.  Mixture of native born and foreign born students.  Writing ability varies.  There are approximately eight people in class.  All students are interested in going to college. 

Special Accommodations
Students are for the most part shy and this may be cultural.  They do not for the most part willingly without being called on.  Because of this I will call on each student by name to share, using a seating chart.  On any difficult words that members of the class may not know, I will write it on the board.  I go through the material repetitively, using different ways to assure comprehension.  I also ask a lot of questions to make sure the class is following the material being presented.

List of vocabulary and whiteboard.  Writing materials needed by students.

Student/Teacher Activities:
