District’s Wylie Way day maps futures
Wylie Way Day is a day the whole district came together to map futures. In each period students conducted different activities to help them figure out what they want to do later in life, learned how to have determination to reach their goals, and studied steps in developing a growth mind set.
“Wylie Way is important to me because it gives you a chance to think about your future, and learn more about your peers,” sophomore Jordan Meyer said.
English teachers talked with the students about passion and planning.
“My passion is music,” Temi George said. “I want to end up composing for film and musicals.”
On this Feb. 8, Students were given a paper and asked to write about what passion means to them, what their passionate about, and what they can do to move towards their passion.
In history classes they focused on determining what would be a good career path to choose. Each student went to the site, Career Cruising, and filled out a questionnaire that asked specific questions regarding if they like working with animals, working in an office, etc.
The activity students did helped them in “Mapping their future” and enhanced their knowledge on different aspects of life.
