This program helps students appreciate the relevance of school experience to future success and happiness. In the video, real students talk about their career aspirations and their views on education. Each of these interviews is juxtaposed with a profile of an accomplished professional working in the same field that the student aspires to pursue. As we follow each subject throughout the workday, the correlation between the life skills learned in school and those applied in the workplace becomes clear. Among the professionals featured are an auto mechanic, an athletic trainer for the New York Giants, and a master chef. All of the subjects draw on their experiences to help motivate teens to stay in school and strive to excel. Follow-up activities provided in the Teacher's Resource Book allow students to further explore career options and the ways in which education can help them meet their career goals. The result is that your students will appreciate some of the intangible but important benefits of high school, including communication skills, organization skills, and leadership qualities.
