Part of Lesson Plan: Careers in Printing
Activity Overview / Details
As the students enter the room you have the following video ready on your screen looping or on their screens if you are in a lab setting:
As you are taking roll, have the students watch the video and take notes on what they see.
Open www.salary.com and click on the "salary" tab. You will be redirected to a page where you will see a "Free Salary Wizard" where one can enter "printer" for the occupation and pick the closest major metropolitan area. When the wizard completes you will have a listing for a printer and a button marked, "View Salary Info" which takes you to a graph listing the salary range for printers in your area.
Engage the students in a brief discussion of the available professions in the printing industry and focus on the limited amount of education required to enter this profession. It is a viable career path that needs to be promoted to students and this is that opportunity.
