So You Want to Become an Actor!
Here is some general information to help you get on the stage that is your life.
The Career Education curriculum supports students in the process of becoming successful, educated citizens by providing them with opportunities to explore a variety of careers and options for their future. Career Education helps students to discover a bridge between classroom learning and workplace and post-secondary realities, and is intended to make their learning meaningful and relevant.
Career Education is a process that recognizes three major phases of career development—Foundation and Awareness, Exploration, and Experience and Application. The connection between grade levels and phases is one of emphasis—many high school students will still need to focus on awareness or exploration for example. Students will transition through each phase based on their personal development and community context.
