Wait for your placement! When your placement is e-mailed to me, I’ll make two copies, one for me and one for you. I’ll tape it to the board and put the date on the job shadow calendar. You’ll get an advanced make-up slip with your placement sheet that details where, when, clothes to wear, etc.
So you aren’t clueless…investigate!! Before you go on your shadow, there are 3 activities to complete and turn in: 1. Click for Business Information Form 2. Click for Fast Shadow Facts Sheet 3. Click for Job Shadow Video Clip Activity All are located at the job shadow link off of Mrs. Renner’s English 3 page.Business Information FormFast Shadow Facts SheetJob Shadow Video Clip Activity

When do you do the job shadow assignments? When you’re done with other English assignments, when you have 5-10 free minutes at the end of class, or outside of class. When do you hand in the job shadow assignments? As soon as you complete them! Everyone will be doing this at different times. There will be no nagging by the teacher, so it’s up to YOU to get the work done and turned in!!!
What is the final project? Utilizing the digital video or images you captured on your job shadow, prepare a PowerPoint presentation or a movie using Windows Movie Maker on the career you shadowed. It should be 4-5 minutes in length. A PowerPoint should include at least 10 slides which should include graphics, transitions, animations, and a creative background (sound is optional). A Windows Movie should incorporate video, audio and images from the job shadow and must also include a list of sources consulted at the end of the movie. Sources are to be cited in MLA format utilizing a minimum of 5 sources.PowerPoint presentationWindows Movie Maker MLA
