Early Career Preparation
Payne explained that the point of view of an engineer and a book editor are not the same. An adult can talk about how an architect solves problems and what words he uses as a child builds a tall big block tower or a welcoming Lego ice cream store.
A child playing with blocks can connect the good feelings she has with the words and problem-solving approaches of an architect. Thinking and talking the way an expert talks and thinks is the first step toward job preparation. Three year olds can start with expert’s words and block play. A mom or a teacher can begin early to give career words to very young children.
