THIS RESOURCE HAS BEEN UPDATED!
This unit contains two similar assignments: a career research report and a career narrative essay. The career report asks students to research a topic of interest, take notes from sources, create a draft, and get peer feedback on their written work. It involves more time and takes a longer for students to complete because they are conducting research. The career narrative gives students the opportunity to write about a career that interests them and how they plan to pursue that career, but it does not include research from outside sources.
My students enjoy this unit because it is relevant to them. I like to have students do this assignment early in the school year to jump start researching a topic and practice MLA format and citations.
In this resource you will get a zip file containing my created documents:
~ Teacher overview sheet
~ Research interest sheet with note taking
