How Do We Help Eighth Graders Choose the Right Course?

In schools deploying The Internship Depot’s programs, we offer ‘The First Rung’ to students in eighth grade. These electronic presentations provide students with a detailed road map that addresses the challenges they will be facing and what they need to do in grade eight to be ready for post-secondary education, work, and life.

We provide detailed information pulled from widely respected research that details the courses they should take, the soft-skills they will need to develop, and what NOT to do to stay employable. We ask that teachers use their skills to ensure that all students have absorbed the information we offer.

Each of these four modules contains a homework assignment aligned to academic standards in either English or Mathematics.
