Upper Elementary and Middle School Career Research Project
The first TWO Parts in the Career Research Project: Perfect for Upper Elementary, Middle School, and ADULTS!
Part I: Vocabulary
Part II : Research a job using a job finder website. We used cacareerzone.org. if
If you live in Texas, for example, you would use txcareerzone.org.
*****This is extensive, but WELL worth it. It provides the foundation for writing an expository essay, cover letter, and interview prep.****
Part III : Write an Expository Essay/Write a Cover Letter/Write a Resume
Part IV: Mock Job Interviews
This is a vocabulary exercise & graphic organizer for students as they being to research careers they'd like to have in the future.
The package includes a thorough career research graphic organizer/worksheet that can be used with websites online, as well as career-specific vocabulary worksheet.
The website I used is accessible to students and is an excellent way to introduce student to the concept of how skills and careers are interconnected.
