- What do you want to be? Given 2 picture choices. These are all opinion questions and students should learn that it is okay if their answer is different than their classmates’ answers. We graph our answers (by putting pictures underneath) so we can compare and see our similarities and differences. Gender neutral terms are used, but the picture may be of either a male or a female. Explain to students that just because a girl (or boy) is pictured, doesn’t mean it’s a girl (or boy) job, and anyone can do it! Since there are only two choices, some students might (rightfully) say that they don’t want to do either. I would respond, that’s okay, you don’t have to, but if you had to choose which one would it be?
- Do you want to be a ____? Yes/No questions. For many students, answering Yes/No questions can be difficult. Many students are conditioned to always say “yes” (or “no”). It is important for these opinion question, that staff responds positively to all choices as not to make a student think they answered incorrectly.

- Chris chimed in on Facebook saying, "I use the vocational question of the day as part of my morning work. We have already discussed careers. It exposes them to ones they haven't even thought about. It's great!"
- Welcome to Spedland commented on TpT and said, "This pack is great! My high school severe-profound students love sharing why they would or would not like a job, and my nonverbal students are able to communicate their opinions too! Thank you!"
