Pathways: Sophomore Career Pathways Planning Events

 

Ms. Greenwood works with all sophomores throughout the year both individually and in classroom programs. There is a strong focus on self and career exploration and making a connection between academic performance and future world of work. Use the table below to view the schedule of planned activities. Events and activities with important deadlines are indicted in RED.


PATHWAYS: Course Syllabus

The Pathways course will be delivered primarily through classroom presentations. This is a non-credit course and while assignments will be given, there will be no traditional grading in this class. The benefit of doing your best on the assignments will be that you will learn more about yourself and feel more confident and prepared to make decisions for yourself and your future. Responsibility and freedom are reciprocal – the more responsibility you take for yourself, the more freedom you will enjoy.
