In week one of class, students will brainstorm vocations. They will discuss vocations to which they are attracted. They will discuss what makes this vocation appealing to them. Students will discuss their own strengths and why they feel this vocation would be a good fit for them. Students will also learn to outline the details about their chosen vocation that will be used in their paper. As homework for week one, students will be required to prepare an outline to share in week two. In week...
Students will learn to research and write about their chosen vocation. They will learn the skills needed for their chosen vocation and the details their chosen vocation entails. They will learn to request an interview and design interview questions. They will learn to conduct an interview in a professional manner.
I hold master's degrees in human services, history, and professional writing.
Each week, students will have a portion of their vocation project to complete for homework. The homework will take anywhere between one to four hours per week, depending upon the individual student. Students will be expected to read enough of the sources to be familiar with the topic presented.
Students will need access to a computer with a word processing software in order to complete their vocation project. They will also need to bring to class materials to take notes such as paper or notecards and a pen or pencil. Students will need to have access to the internet and/or print sources (books and/or periodicals) to conduct their research. They will need to be able to contact a professional in their chosen vocation for an interview. They must be able to conduct the interview either in person, by telephone, or by mail or electronic communication. They will also need their own copy of the formatting guide for the Modern Language Association.
I will assign each student a final letter grade based upon their understanding of the content presented in class and their final research paper. These grades will be privately messaged to the students and their parents after the final class.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be required to conduct an interview with a professional for their chosen vocation. Parents should be aware of the individuals their students choose to interview.
