When thinking about Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics it makes me think of how important this career cluster is to our economy. In what way do you think the cluster contributes to/effects our nation's economy? Please describe your two careers in this cluster first. How do you think each of your two careers in this cluster contribute to/effect our nation's economy? How does this cluster contribute to/effect the other clusters you have completed research in? This cluster contributes to/effects our nation's economy because transportation is the most important part of our lives, the world is surounded by use of transportation to get people from place to place. A rail car repairer is important becuase without rail car repairers there would be broken trains and goods couldnt be transported long distances.

Recently I have been asking my students to make connections between their personal lives/chosen careers and those careers they choose to research in class. I ask them to to think about how semi-random research can be tied to meaning for them, personally. This week, among other things, we have researched two careers in the Government and Public Administration cluster. I would like to know why students chose to research the careers they did and how they "connect" to their own chosen career. I chose the careers i did because i thought i had an intrest in these careers and i thought they have a conection with my chosen careers.
