Research skills are one of the most important skills students need in the 21st Century whether they are going on to higher education or entering the workforce. This project is aimed at teaching students important research skills along with helping them define long term and future goals for themselves. It is a way to motivate students to research properly and accurately by getting them to research one of the most crucial topics as they leave high school: a career. This is an outline and a schedule I give to my students to introduce the unit and keep students organized with major due dates. You can find other materials and activities that accompany this handout for the entire unit on my site!
