Extensive directions, guidance, and examples are provided to guide students every step of the way through independent completion of this project. I know things continue to be different this year, and I am excited about this innovative project - I truly believe it makes the impossible possible! The Virtual Job Shadow Project will take students at least six hours to complete all parts of this project. This Virtual Job Shadow Project ensures that your students don't miss out of essential job shadowing experiences - a must have for distance learning!

If students are completely new to the concept of job shadows, a good starting point and prequel to this resource is the Job Shadow Challenge.
