7th grade students in Mrs. Baker’s Project Discover class are working this week on presentation skills. The week will culminate with each student going through a job interview with a staff member from the Innovation Campus. Students were given a set of questions to practice with and they have worked on add depth to their answers and including points that set them apart from others. Today they worked on the “other skills” such as executing a firm handshake, using appropriate body language, making eye contact, and having a plan for what to do with their hands and feet.
While these students are not yet eligible to go out into the real world and apply for jobs, students discussed all of the different ways that these skills are transferrable to their lives!
