PACE II Semester Outline
(Personal And Career Exploration II)
PACE II, which we will rename “Life” for the next eighteen weeks, is a core class required for graduation from David Douglas High School. It is intended to expose student’s possible career paths as students prepare for their future and the world of work. In addition to gaining useful career knowledge, students will participate in many “technology” activities that will be challenging, yet fun and will leave this class with an e-Portfolio of their work.
EXPECTIONS: The following is a list of expectations of ALL students. They are general in nature, but can be explained in more detail if student behavior indicates clarity is necessary.
COURSE TOPICS: Each student will cover many different topics in PACE II. Due dates, scoring guides, and a complete explanation of requirements will be provided with all assignments and projects. Projects are mostly individual in nature, but some will involve small group participation. The six units we will cover include:
2. Career Learning Area
3. College/Tech School
4. Google Docs
5. Job Readiness
GRADING: All work will be graded on a point scale based upon the weight of each individual assignment. At the end of the semester, the total amount of points earned on all graded work and student participation will be divided by the total points possible to determine the student’s final grade. In order to receive a passing grade in PACE II, students are expected to attain a minimum score of 70%. The grading scale for PACE II is as follows:
A = 100+ - 90% B = 89 - 80% C = 79 - 70%
THE BOTTOM LINE…
…And You Will Be Successful!!!
