  1. Kim,

    I like the idea of having the students research possible career choices. This would give them insight into what they might want to do in the future. As you know sometimes searching on the web can be a waste of time if you do not know the ins and outs of searching the web. This a valuable lesson you can teach them. Having them make a presentation also teaches them about public speaking skills.

  2. I think this unit will serve your students well. There appear to be a number of ways that you could go with your EQ:
    Who Am I?
    What is Best For Me?
    What Does the Future Hold?
