Part of Lesson Plan: Preparing for Competitive Events: The Job Application and Interview Event
Activity Overview / Details
Share the rules of the Competitive Recognition Event (CRE) Job Appplicaiton and Interview. Go over all rules with the students. They will be using the rubric at the end of the event as assessment for the project.
I have also attached the brochure for all the CRE events; some students will be interested in other events. All rules are available online at http://hect.org/fhahero/Competitive%20Events/CREGuide.htm
Review the Portfolio Rubric. In doing so, refer to a few completed portfolios that former students have left behind. (I always have a few that are well done and somehow were left behind)
In addition to this, portfolios should have a cover, table of contents, section title pages, any related certificates the student has earned, a research paper (writing sample) ( I assign a research paper every year; after it is graded the student should put it in the portfolio), work evaluations (my students get quarterly evaluations when working at a fieldsite; if this is not available, anothr form of work evaluation can be used). Portfolios should be creative, neat and professional.
