Suggesting an aid to all students. Take a personality assessment on line. mbti is the best but is adequate and free. Student will learn their personal gifts, strengths and weaknesses. An aid to selecting classes. Biggest benefit is learning to accept yourself just the way you are. Everyone is just fine, but just different. There are 16 basic types. The work of Isabel Myers Briggs who studied Carl Jung. She spent her life studying people so that she could take Mr. Jung"s theory and put it into a hands on tool for knowing our differences. Only takes 20 min. to find out how wonderful you are and could change your life in major ways. Gives one a sense of pride and calm and self confidence. All types are needed for society to function.

Regarding personalities. After students find their personality, they can go to truity careers on line and natch their 4 letters which signifies their personality, and they can match with education. There will be a drop down window with all the employment that fits their personality plus the wages plus the growth potential. If the education is changed the careers change as well as the wages.
A fun thing to do is to go on line and match their letters with famous people. Even characters like in Star Wars, etc.
