We will spend the next two weeks working on the job-application materials that you have chosen. Since everyone has different goals, we will spend most of our class time working independently and collaboratively.
Topics for Project 3
I’ve checked and responded to all the Topics that were posted as of 5 PM Sunday, 3/30. If you haven’t posted your topic yet, please go to “Tests & Quizzes” in Scholar and complete “03/28 P3 Topic” assignment by the end of the day today. In case you need motivation, remember that this project is graded on participation and effort, so put in the effort!
Today’s Class Session
I want you to accomplish two things today:
- Spend some time in your groups explaining your plans for Project 3 to one another. Ideally, you can work together on some of the tasks for this project (like sharing resources you find). The first step in that process is knowing what everyone in the group is doing.
- Search for resources that will help you with the activities you have chosen for Project 3. You can (in fact you should) collaborate on your search with your group members. Use Google Advanced Search if you have trouble with the vt.edu search on the Career Services site.
Post the resources you have found to help you with your project. The goal is to have 3 or 4 good resources that you can use, including materials from Markel and from the Career Services Planning Guide. Go to “Tests & Quizzes” in Scholar and complete today’s assignment, “03/31 P3 Resources.”
Because you may not have your textbook with you, I’m giving you extra time to get your writing posted. Please have your work submitted in Tests & Quizzes by Thursday, 04/03/2014 05:04:15 PM.
Do what you need to do for your project. On Wednesday, you will work with your group to set the criteria for your projects. Think about exactly what you will need to turn in for your project so that you are ready to create your criteria in class.
Unless something comes up, you will have the full class session on Friday to work on your project. I’m shifting the peer review session to next week (rather than this Friday) to give you more time to get your projects underway. Plan to have a working draft to share on Monday, April 7. It doesn’t have to be finished, but it should be enough that your group members can review it and give you some feedback.
