This is a large project for career exploration designed for middle school students.
The project has 3 parts: a poster, an essay, and an oral presentation. Each part has its own expectations rubric in student friendly language meant to be used for students to evaluate their projects as they go. Each part has detailed instructions for how to get started.
The last page of the document includes a graphic organizer for narrowing down the career and getting started. I use this as a homework assignment.
