15 Minutes - Exploring Personal Qualities
Lead a discussion on personal qualities and how each student has specific qualities that make them unique. To help students identify their personal qualities, introduce the game ‘thumbs up, thumbs down, thumbs in the middle’.
15 Minutes - Discovering Skills
In small groups ask students to share something they like doing/think they are good at and provide the person sitting next to them with something they believe that person is good at. For example ‘I like to use technology and I believe Mary is good at solving number problems’. Provide students with an example first.
15 Minutes - Personality Types
Using the set of Personality Type posters, lead a discussion on how being aware of your personal qualities and skills can help determine which types of jobs suit you. Ask students to think of different jobs to suit each personality type. Discuss the idea that students may connect with one or several personality types.
