Waterville Elementary 5th Graders Shadow High School Students

On Friday, April 29, 2016 Waterville Elementary Students visited Bradley Central High School to shadow high school students in CTE classes to develop insight into career awareness.  Before the visit WES counselor Mallory Vaughn led approximately 80 students in a career interest lesson and survey before the visit to determine areas to be shadowed.  The career survey was in line with the 16 National Career Clusters and BCHS 13 Career Cluster representation.  The day of the shadowing Brittany Cannon, WBL coordinator, opened up the event with information about the great programs in CTE and the future opportunities in work related learning. After a tour around the school, students were paired in small groups with the CTE programs of choice.  The elementary students then became CTE students for the morning.  Completing hands on tasks in the career areas such as animal care, finger printing and handcuffing, vital signs, shampooing and hair care, robot programming, game design, business marketing plan creation, product sales, auto technology  information, bulletin board creation, news broadcasting, machine CNC programming.  This was truly a great day.  We used this event as a pilot and would like to expand this program to all 5th grade schools next year as a part of the Work Based Learning K-12 plan which includes career awareness for the elementary grades, career choices for the middle grades, and career submersion for the high school grades.  Arlette Robinson, CTE Director
