Once you have chosen the career you want to research, write it down at the top of your Web paper in your purple folder.
Then take out one of your Note Taking Sheets from your purple folder and choose at least 3 of the sites below to research your career. Use a New Note Taking sheet for each different site.
- Make sure to put your name and teachers name at the top of your Note Taking sheet
- Make sure to fill out the Bibliographic information for each website.
- Take lots of good notes. It is hard to remember what you read weeks later when you are doing your power point!
- Don't forget to write neatly so that you can read it later.
Now it is time to put all your Notes together into a cool Power Point about your career!
You will need to create a Power Point with at least 7 slides. They should be titled:
- Title: this will have the name of your career, your name and your teachers name
- Introduction: This slide will include your career, career cluster and the reason you chose this career. It will also include a brief description of your career.
- Training and Education: Will you need to go to college or technical school? How long will you be in school? What kind of degree will you need?
- Work environment: Is your job indoors or outdoors? How will you need to dress. What kind of people will you need to work with?
- Salary and Growth Opportunities: How much will you make in this career? Do you have to stay in this same job forever or can you be promoted? This is what we mean by growth. Will you be able to find a job in this career?
- Conclusion: Now that you have done the research, tell us what you think of your career. Do you still want to do it? Why or why not?
- Bibliography: This is where you will list the websites you used for this project in correct MLA style. Use the following as an example:
Save your work on our One Drive account so that your teacher can see it.
Remember that you will have to stand up in front of your class and explain what is on your slides. Make sure that you know what your slides say and can answer questions about the information you present.
