This research writing unit includes graphic organizers, examples of completed projects, career cluster posters and activities, and more for supporting 5th graders as they write reports on their future jobs! (I used it for teaching the Georgia CCRPI Career Portfolio Project with my fifth graders, but it's definitely comprehensive enough to support other grades' and states' career research report projects!)

This Research Report Bundle Includes:

1. Career Cluster Activity and Example Posters: Get your students talking about careers using these Career Posters as a word splash and matching game! Includes full page posters displaying a wide variety of careers in the clusters of:
-Healthcare Science
-Engineering and Technology
-Arts and Humanities
-Business and Computer Science
-Architecture, Construction, Communications, and Transportation

There are 6 main posters, each showing a different cluster. One set of posters includes cluster titles and a description of the cluster for your walls. The other set is untitled, so students can match the cluster title and description to each corresponding poster (also included).

I have students work in small groups to determine each career cluster and get them fired up about learning about careers. Laminate the posters and have them circle the careers they want to learn about. (I've also had great success projecting these word splash posters to facilitate whole group discussion about careers.)

2. Keep Calm and Choose a Career Poster: This poster not only displays careers from every cluster, but gives a visual that show students the immense and awesome career possibilities for their lives! Use this as a motivating jumping off point for having students choose which careers they wish to research. Includes 2 color "Keep Calm and Choose a Career" printable posters in PDF format. 1 design prints neatly on the page, while the other's words are purposely stretched off the page's edges to create a completely filled look. The choice is up to you!

3. 2 Graphic Organizers for Research with completed graphic organizer model: I print the two back to back to help students organize the information they collect as they research careers on www.gacollege411.org. I've also included a completed 4-square example for the students to help them clearly see how a the completed organizer should look.

4. Finished Portfolio Project Report Example {Published 3 Ways}: I use these examples with my students after students research and write a report about the career of their choice. I give them a choice about how they want to publish their work. This resource includes an example of the career portfolio project published 3 different ways (Prezi, PowerPoint, Word). Seeing examples of the various formats greatly helped my students understand the task. I also print these to differentiate for students needing additional writing support. Students are able to refer to the quality writing to improve their own writing.

All versions of the report have identical writing and include:
-3 Body Paragraphs
-Topic & Closing Sentences
-3+ Supporting Details
-Cited Sources (www.GAcareers411.org)

The PowerPoint career report has audio attached to each page, which reads the text to students for differentiation. There is a second PowerPoint included in this file, which highlights the topic & closing sentences and three supporting details to further assist students understand exactly what their own writing should include.

The Prezi is located online and linked to a Word document within this resource.

The Word example (provided as a PDF) uses headings and paragraphs.

Bundled for savings!

This is one of my favorite writing projects of the year. I hope it becomes one of yours as well!

Happy Teachering!
