"The students in my program that I see struggling with specific career choices and establishing goals also have difficulties with curriculum competencies and, more importantly, lower levels of self-motivation. The outcomes of my CTE program's major missions are suffering as a result. Yes, I am saying that this lack of relevant career information hampers their ability to decide and plan adequately. Furthermore, when students lack a direction or purpose, they also lack locus and motivation. I can begin to correct and prevent this situation from occurring by including more career awareness activities in my CTE program's curriculum.
