This lesson, which the students will complete over several days, will help them in preparing to compete in the FHA-HERO Competitive Recognition Event (CRE) Job Application and Interview. This lesson could be used in any of the areas of Home Economics Careers and Technology. It also serves as a culminating project in a course.
The final product produced by students will be a Portfolio that would be used in the event. I have often referred to this as a "Showcase of the Student's Best Work". When that terminology is used, students take this very seriously and do a great job. I have often had students contact me after graduation saying that the portfolio "helped me get the job".
