Goochland High School requires every senior to complete a “project-based” learning assignment prior to graduation. My graduating ESOL student completed her senior project this past year entitled “Finding the Right Career.”
This is the second time I have helped a graduating ESOL student through the senior project process. We also had community support from my volunteer Ann Casey, who provided step-by-step assistance and valuable contacts.
The steps for this hands-on senior project are the following:
1). The student took an on-line survey to determine her career strengths.
2). The student researched three recommended careers.
3). The student wrote an essay on the qualifications needed for each career.
4). The student interviewed and video-taped three different candidates in each recommended career.
5). The student completed a video project documenting her “quest” for the right career.
6). The student determined which career she wanted to pursue based on this project-based learning assignment.
Attached is a video clip she created documenting the process of her quest-a project-based learning assignment which will potentially impact her for the rest of her life.
