The purpose of using the Punk Rock Preschool™ Job Poster is to give students context for the subject they are learning and increase their motivation and attention for the subject. By incorporating a theme-related job into each unit, you will provide the class with a strong reason for why they should care and pay attention. For example, here’s what I would say to the class if we were learning about animals and pets: “If y’all think animals are super cool and you love learning about animals and pets, then guess what? You can spend your whole life learning about animals and pets if you become a veterinarian. Do you want to learn what veterinarians do?!”
The important thing is that students will now pay attention just to evaluate if this is something they may want to do! This gets kids to start thinking long-term at a young age and some may even start pursuing this long-term plans! Most importantly, the Job Poster gives context and direction for the students who do find their passions in what you’re teaching. Now the subject isn’t just cool or interesting– now it has become useful. Students can apply what they’re learning to their lives and they can use it to pursue their dreams! Something as simple as a weekly Punk Rock Preschool™ Job Poster can change lives.
