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 8-10 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 the form of an EDITABLE PowerPoint file, so you can tweak this to fit you and your students' needs:
-Teacher Information, Suggested Timeline, and Helpful Links
-Project Instruction Sheet
-Interview Questions/Transcript Sheet
-Peer Evaluation Sheet
-Blank Slide with Title/Design (so that you can add anything you need to this project)
