​This collection of tasks support the Kentucky Academic Standards for Career Studies. They introduce students to the 16 Career Clusters and promote active learning by engaging them with career specific skills, knowledge and/or tasks of their choice. These tasks may be modified to meet instructional and/or individual student needs.

Student Work Samples

These samples may represent students' first introduction to authentic topics and skills related to a career cluster. They may serve as a model for students and teachers and may be modified as needed to meet instructional and/or student needs. Some clusters include teacher created models.
