…think about the last days as much as you think about the first days. Work to create memorable experiences that will stay with the students and fuel their continued learning.

Take it on the Road …

Did you know?

A good end of the semester activity will leave a lasting impression on students and keep them motivated to continue their education.  An informational interview is a particularly good culminating assignment because these interviews help students connect their classroom learning to a career that interests them. When students participate in an informational interview they have an opportunity to meet professionals, ask questions and gather valuable information. An informational interview is a brilliant, conversational, networking tool that gives students a nugget of mentoring in the process. Empower your students to collaborate and communicate as they take their classroom learning on the road.

Here’s how…

  • Ask them.
    What is an information interview?
    Why would you do an informational interview?
    How could an informational interview help you?
  • View video explaining the what, why and how of an informational interview.
  • Select and view a Roadtrip Nation interview related to your interests.
  • Distribute Student Activity (now in fillable pdf form), review directions and complete.
  • Discuss the next step they need to take to make their interviews a reality.
