What does a sample Jumpstart! lesson cover?
As an example, the second lesson in “The Brainstorm” covers personal branding. Students worked on a module to develop their own elevator pitches, and practiced delivering the pitches in pairs with their peers. Following, students were given the challenge to incorporate their own “Success Stories,” using the STAR (situation/ task/ action/ result) model, for interview preparation. Armed with both elevator pitches and STAR situations, students then “networked” around the room with professionals from the community, receiving constructive feedback on both their strong and weak areas.
