This is a research paper assignment that I created for my standard level English III class (11th grade English. My students enjoyed researching careers that they were interested in and the educational requirements to move into them. Many of my students in this course had not spent much time thinking about what they wanted to do after high school, and writing this paper was a great opportunity for me to have conversations with them and help them with questions they had about how to apply to college, how to find out what salaries were for different careers, and the job outlook for different professions. We used Noodle Tools as a platform to organize their research, but any research methods/ tools you want to use would work with this assignment. It would also work with many grade levels.
