Projects

Students will prepare a presentation about themselves.  Through a poster board or a PowerPoint presentation, each student will share who they are.  Below is a list of some ideas for what to include.
Background:
  • family
  • where you are from originally
  • where you grew up
  • where you live now
  • brothers and sisters
Qualifications:
  • elementary school
  • middle school
  • awards/accomplishments
  • clubs/organizations
Favorites
  • teams
  • athletes
  • musicians
  • actors
  • foods
  • hobbies
Dislikes
  • list things you don't like
  • etc.
  • etc.
  • etc.

Plus any other facts that people do not know about you!

 
The general idea is to introduce students to each other and to learn a little about one another as we begin a new school year.  While it is fun learning about new and old classmates, students will begin to work on public speaking skills as well as listening skills.  Students will be shown examples of prior projects in class to get an idea of what is expected.  Students will also be given a rubric for grading purposes. 
Students will prepare a presentation for the class honoring someone who they consider to be a hero to them.  It must be someone they have a personal connection with.  In the presentation, the student will give some background about their hero and explain the connection they have.  They will also share some stories as to why this person is such a hero to them.  The presentation should be no longer than five minutes.  As well as the oral presentation, students must prepare either a poster board or a power point representing their hero.
 
 
Students are to prepare a presentation identifying three talents they possess.
Through a poster board or a PowerPoint presentation, students will show off those talents with a focus on the talent they love the most or feel is their best talent.
The focal point for this project is on how we can utilize our talents in the future either as a career move or a vehicle to gain a college scholarship.
Students will perform research on the career they think they would like to pursue.  Through either a poster board or a PowerPoint presentation, students will share their career choice and the information they have retrieved about it.  Ideas for the presentation may include the following:
  • years of college/vocational/apprenticeship etc.
  • beginning salary
  • highest earning potential
  • job duties
  • job outlook (5-10 years in the future)
  • where the jobs are
