We also had the opportunity to get in the classroom and visit with our Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors! After going over Class Announcements, we jumped into the following lessons (by class):
After taking a quick interest inventory, students learned about the different personality types that make up RIASEC (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, Conventional). After choosing the personality type they aligned with the most, students discussed different careers that might suit each personality type.
Let's just say our Juniors @ GFH are pretty excited about taking the ACT this year! The ACT is given to all Juniors (for free!) on April 19, 2016 and it is never too early to start preparing. Each Junior created an account username and password on ACT Online Prep, an online program that allows users to take ACT practice tests, investigate the ACT and its components, and create a study path. PLEASE USE THIS PROGRAM!!! P.S. Parents - we can totally see if your student has logged in, how much time they've spent in the program, and if they've taken a practice test...just in case you were wondering :)
Last (but definitely not least) we got to visit with our SENIORS!!! Senior year is HUGE, and there's a lot of stuff to know...so we spent most of the period going over Announcements, The Top 10 Thing Seniors Need to Know, and how Seniors can apply for and earn SCHOLARSHIPS!
As your GFH Counselors, we are excited for this year, and we are looking forward to working with all of our Bison!
