As high school students plan out their futures (both before and after graduation plans), it is important for them to consider possible career paths and what goals they need to set to be able to achieve what they want to achieve in life. This is why I created this career research project. This is a simple project, easily accessible for almost every student learning level, and gives students enough information about the career they choose for the project to give them an idea if it is a career path they are willing to take.
This project is also great for a few of the most difficult to plan times of the year:
--In the gap between finishing the content for a semester and the break itself.
--Having to be out multiple days (unexpected death in the family, planned surgery, unexpected and horrible flu, etc.)
--During testing when students’ brains are fried and can’t take any more content.
--During a two day school week that resulted from several snow days in a row that completely blew up all of your well-intentioned plans.
Whatever the purpose of you using this assignment, I hope you will find that it gives your students a much-needed reality check about their future, while allowing them a break from the traditional classroom environment and structure. They are free to research their career, be creative with making their poster, and enjoy a day not listening to you talk (I know my students did!).
