Make the Connection
When it comes to my class, I make an attempt to tie together things they learn in science an math to real world situations. I hook the students with the promise of electrical experiments, melting metal, and having the opportunity be involved in a little controlled destruction. Most will usually catch an interest in one of those topics. If there is a students that still feels a little distraught about their class placement I revert to their career project we begin with at the beginning of the year and try to connect some part of my program to their "Dream Job" or the alternate they gave in the project. If all else fails, I bring up the money possibilities in the career fields and the option of a career at Pratt and Whitney (a large supporter of my program) a local air craft engine manufacturer that offers to pay for up to a masters degree for any of their employees.
