Exploratory focuses on student investigation of
various career choices. Participants are informally
assessed on a daily basis and are tested periodically.
Students also evaluate their own performances
by following the daily grade sheet rubrics. During
final student oral presentations that describe
process, materials, requisite tools and skills
for completed project, teacher and student audience
evaluate and provide feedback.

Ed to the Rescue allows students to explore
career avenues while providing an important service
to the community. Students feel invested in the
school as they create a lasting legacy for classrooms
they have improved.
Tip It's important
that students create a work and parts list before
venturing into classrooms. Each student should
be aware of their role in the project so that
they understand time management skills.
