I use this assignment at the beginning of the year in my world history class.
Students are asked to complete research on people who study history; Historians, Sociologists, Anthropologists, Archaeologists, Geographers, Political Scientists, and Economists. The assignment provides QR codes that link to the Occupational Outlook Handbook.
Students are asked to find information regarding pay, education levels, job environment, and future outlook for each profession. The information will be recorded onto a foldable which is glued into their notebook.
I have included a sample finished notebook page for my class, as well as a foldable on historians and one on non-historians. Teacher and student directions are also included.
