Unit 12: "Careers"
Touchstone 4 Lesson Plans
Professor Carrier
What is your dream job? Discuss with your partner.
When we think about a career some of the questions we ask are:
What do I want to do?
What am I interested in?
Does that job have a good future?
What can I start doing to prepare for that career now?
What would be a good company to apply to?
Look at the pictures on page 117. What are the jobs in each picture?
Look at the list of jobs at the bottom of page 117.
Which areas of work is hard to get into?
Which areas are easy to get into?
Which are the highest paid?
Which are the most popular with your friends?
Lesson A: "Finding a Career"
"What" Clauses
We can use clauses beginning with "what" and long noun phrases as the subject of sentences with the verb "be." The verb can be followed by a word or a phrase (noun, adjective, or verb) or by a clause.
Long Noun Phrases
What you need
lots of information
. (noun phrase)
What my friend did
. (adjective)
What I would do
talk to people
. (verb phrase)
What I'm saying

you need to choose a career that you really like
. (clause)
The main thing you need
. (noun)
Something my friend did
. (adjective)
The best thing to do

talk to people
. (verb phrase)
The good thing about that

you end up with a job you love
. (clause)
Try to remember when you were in elementary school.
What job did you want to do when you grew up?
Has your dream changed or do you still feel that way?
