Description

Help your students think ahead to the future learn about their desired career with this Career & Communication Research Project + Interview. I designed this project for my second-semester seniors in my Technical Communication course so that I could get to know my students and their future careers/goals AND so they could practice essential ELA skills. This mini-unit will take you & your students approximately 7-10 days from start to finish.


For this project, students will practice key writing, research, presentation, and speaking/listening skills by doing the following:

-Writing about why they are interested in their career, how it fits their personality, and what they want to learn

-Researching about the career, required skills, positives and negatives, etc.

-Drafting interview questions and interviewing someone in the field

-Organizing all of their information in a well-designed presentation (slideshow, poster, brochure, etc.)

-Providing an informative, engaging presentation to their peers

-Evaluating their peers so that everyone stays busy and engaged during presentations

When you purchase this product, you will receive the following in 2 print & digital formats (editable PowerPoint & Google Docs/Slides/Forms) so you can choose what works best for you:

-Teacher Information & Sample Timeline

-Project Instruction Sheet

-Resource Hyperdoc w/ helpful links

-Project Outline

-Interview Questions/Transcript Sheet

-Rubric

-Peer Evaluation Sheet

-Blank Slide with Title/Design (so that you can add anything you need to this project)
