Throughout much of their time in school, kids are asked the timeless question: "what do you want to be when you grow up?" Not many of them truly know what they want to do or what options are even out there. With growing rates of enrollment as well as unique conflicts and issues amongst students, not many guidance counselors have time to go in depth with students regarding the college process.
Why not help your students navigate the intimidating, complex world of "adulting" and post-secondary opportunities by using your research unit? The post-secondary process naturally requires a large amount of research as it is. Using this opportunity to teach your students how to find the information they need while simultaneously practicing research and writing skills will not only save time but engage your students with a relevant, individualized project.
This bundle includes 15 pages of materials designed to allow students to independently research their desired career and a college or training program that fits it. Students begin with teacher-directed research questions and move to student-directed once they are familiar with their topics. Also with the help of guided checklists, videos of MLA and bibliography samples, and data collection sheets to help organize their learning, your students will be diving in in no time!
