I have been opening the documents that have been cleared and much to my disappointment, many of you have decided to just send directions or incomplete work. You have had over a week to open up your work and finish it. 

Part of the purpose for this course is to push yourself to do the very best you can do without another person standing on top of your to force you to do the work. You will have to produce excellent work when you get a career and your boss will not be standing on top of you.

Part of the grading system in this class is TRUST, and unfortunately, many of you have broken this trust. I do look at your work, so GO through all of your work and make sure it is the very best you can do-COMPLETE your work.

Sub: Please help the students stay on task by wandering from student to student asking them what they are working on. Many of the students have completed their work, so those that are done should be helping others in the class. It is fine for them to talk as long as they are on task. Thank you for covering for me-bad time to be out.

Amanda: If you could scan any work that has come in that would be appreciated.

Class: Please pass these messages to the sub and Amanda.

WORK HARD PLEASE AND COMPLETE YOUR ASSIGNMENTS

ALL WORK SHOULD BE 12 POINT, TIMES NEW ROMAN, AND BLACK Please make sure you check to see all of your work is formatted correctly. Many of you are turning in your work without your name, date, assignment name on the document. Make sure you SELECT ALL and then change font, color, and type. 

May 27, 2013 2 days left in the term.

Today all students will be ethical technology users and community contributors. Today all students will continue working on their portfoliio. 

PLEASE make sure you have completed the assignment, BEFORE you send it to me. Sending me directions or another assignment in place of the one required is NOT acceptable, I do go through your work, so make sure it is your very best.

Sub: Please help the sub with any challenges he/she may face. Remember to stay on task. I am out for at least two days, maybe until the last day. Please feel free to call me or text me: 425-879-1187 is my number the for the next three days. I left my charging cord at work so am unable to charge up the 359-8464 number.

Your last assignment for the course is to put all of your polished work into ONE folder and send me that folder. 

Please make sure that you send all of your work through spell check, going over many of these assignments I find that you have sent work that has spelling errors and words not capitalized. This folder is to reflect your very best work, not just an assignment that you have crossed off of a checklist. You have a whole week to do this, so DO IT.

May 20, 2014   8 Days left in the term

Remember to use the computer that I scan with or the computer that is connect to the internet for the following assignments: pathway, high school academic plan, checklist, and test scores. The rest of the documents you should be able to do on your computers.

Please help the substitute by staying on task. You will need to look at the lifestyle essay and complete this by the end of the week. The essay directions are located under the personal tab. Please write the essay on Google Drive and then share with me. You have the option of 1 or 2 to write, so pick the one that best fits you.

Your family has kicked you out of the house and you must now provide for yourself without any assistance from anyone. Your job pays you $10 an hour.

We will go through the process of finding a home first and then complete the budget...you must stay UNDER $2000 total and your taxes are $600 (make sure to put this number in first so you do not forget). We are working under the personal tab today.

I have posted a chart with the progress all of you have made towards building your portfolio. If you are in the green, you are to pick one person in the blue, yellow or red to help out for the next nine days. Lets see if we can get everyone into the green zone by the last day of the course! I know we can do it.  

Just for your information Your name must be green to pass...

Today all students will be quality producers. Today all students will work on the career comparison essay. Please remember that your quotes from your sources CANNOT be OVER 40 words, so go back and make sure your sources are 40 words or less for each quotation. Remember that each quotation must be in quotation marks. 

Example:

The skills for an engineer are as followed: "Students will need to take lots of maths subjects at school if they are interested in pursuing engineering at a tertiary level such as algebra, geometry and trigonometry... (Engineers Australia, 2010, para 3). The engineer must also have transferrable skills such as teamwork, communication, technology, critical thinking, art, language, history, and visual arts (Engineers Australia, 2010).

 The second part not in quotation marks is a paraphrase of the material on the website.

Reference for this source looks like this:

Engineers Australia  (2010). Required Skills. Retrieved from http://www.engineeryourcareer.org.au/?page_id=201

 

For each of your references you must haveL

 Author, Year Date, Title of the Article, Retrieved from URL 

I am aware that this a tremendous amount of formatting that you may not be used to, but try to get it all down. Please remember that ALL of your Font must be in Times New Roman, so you will need to select all, and then change font to 12point, black, Times New Roman BEFORE you turn it in!

To wrap up the career unit, you will write a career comparison essay. We have developed a resume, completed a job application, and created a career chart, the next step is to select two careers that fit your personality and compare them. This essay addressed ten different areas that an individual should take into account as they decide how they would like to spend the majority of their waking hours. You will spend an average of ten hours, five days a week, at your job, so your goal is to ensure you select a career that you enjoy.

This essay requires a title page and a reference page. You are required to cite your resources that you use for this report. I use APA instead of MLA as most colleges use APA. I have given you a template to follow so please use it.

Today all students will be effective community contributors. Today will be one more work day for everyone. Many of you are missing work so please use this time to get caught up on past assignments. I will continue helping everyone send their scanned work to the class website. If you have not brought in an award, you must complete an award essay. The directions for this assignment are under the personal tab.

Each of you are responsible for uploading your work onto Myfuturehawaii, so once you have completed an assignment, please remember to upload it.

Use the table on May 9th to check off what you have done and what you have left to do. PLEASE do not just sit around chatting.

May 8, 2014   15 Days left in the term

All students will be complex thinkers and community contiributors. Today we will finish up on the Interview Articles and then compose a career chart. 

We will be looking at your personality profile and using a Labor and Industry website by the government. This website offers a wide range of information about jobs and will be useful throughout your career lifetime. It is a great source to help you decide what career to pursue in college.

We should have little trouble getting this chart done today since our internet is working great!

When the chart is completed. You will need to go back to Myfuturehawaii and upload the past work over the last few weeks. Please use your checklist to ensure you have all of the assignments loaded in there.

Please help the substitute see the website and assist you.  Make sure you sign in as usual. The sub book is the blue notebook in my area if needed. Call me if you need anything 808-359-8464.

All students will be community contributors. Today all students will complete the Interview Articles.

The goal of this assignment is to generate notes for yourself when it comes time to go on an interview.  Each of you will have your own list that is personalized for you. The assignment asks you to identify pieces of information from several websites to help you prepare for a very intense, nerve-wracking event-the interview. 

As you do this assignment, imagine that you are writing your information on an index card. You will pin this to your clothes that you will wear for your interview. You will only write down information that you need to be reminded of. For instance, if you have an earring and you are a male, you may forget to take it out for the inteview-no earrings for males. If you have a tattoo, you may need to cover it, if you wear hair bands on your wrist, you will need to remove them. Simple little things that you may not even think are noticable must be addressed when you go on the interview.

How do you sit in your chair, how do you shake hands, what do you say, how do you speak?  All of these issues could make or break the interview. For this assignment, You will NOT write down information you already know about the interview. Take this opportunity to learn something new about the interview that you need to remember before, during and after the interview. I have provided a template for  you .
