In teaching Occupation Preparation, I encountered the following:  How to assist students in learning about careers and professions that I may know very little about?  And how to turn this issue into a projectr that would be engaging for the students? The Solution was simpler than I thought.  Have the students as a group research a career or profession each week, chosen from a list I created, and have a member of that profession vist the classroom to be interviewed by the students..On Monday and Tuesday, students, as a group and facilitated by myself, would discuss exising knowledge of a particular profession.  They would also develop questions to guide their research, or ask a member of that profession.On Wednesday and Thursday, students woudl research the profession, both individually and as a group (using employment websites).On Friday (or Thursdday if it was a short week), a member of that profession would meet with the studnets and discuss skills, training, etc needed in the profession.  Students would, in their graphic organizers, summarrize skills, training, etc needed for the profession and identify their level of interest in the profession.A copy of both the graphic organize and a list of campus professions is attached

In teaching both U.S. History 1 and 2, I wanted to present students with a academic activity that would engage them in doing individual research, and presenting a creative, summay project.  The trick was finding a topic that would attract student's attention.  In reviewing a Gilded Era book, I was impressed by the number of inventors and invetions from 1868 to about 1930.  And if I was itnersted, then I imagined the students might also be interested.So I drafted a list of both inventors and inventions from 1868 to about 1930, and had students select one inventor/invention from the list to research.  My goal was to have students complete a power-point including background of the inventor/invention, uses for the invetion, and effects of the invetion on today;'s world.Students were able to select at least 1 inventor/invention from the list, and begin drafting quesitons about both subjects and what should be included in their final project.  Following this "think-session" students spent class time in the computer lab researching both inventor and invention and developing a power-point.  Staff facilitated the reserach and project development, in finding reliiable websites, spellling and grammar checks, organization, and in selection of powerpoint features (background, animation, sound, etc)Attached are the list of inventors/invetnions, a graphic organizer to guide the research.and a sample with a rubric.
