When I do the "building a tower activity" with my students, It is interesting to see them looking around the room to see how other groups are impacted (positively and negatively) by their education level. In today's changing economy, we need to help students understand that "education" may include going to a trade school and learning a skill. It's not just a college education that will help you earn more money. The idea is that you keep increasing your human capital in ways that will allow you to be of more service to others.

Great lesson! Sometimes it is hard for students (in high school) to understand the importance of human capital. Great way to enhance the importance of why building human capital is important to your future. Really a great opportunity to build discussion topics and doing think, pair, share activities.

Transitions and Careers
9-12
I wanted to share that the concept of human capital was new to students. Once they understood the meaning, they were able to see how things they are involved in now and skills they are honing will help them in the future as they choose a career interest.
