How did you modify this unit for use in your own classroom?: Exploring Nursing Careers On-Line Students will acquire specific knowledge of nursing careers using the Internet as a research tool.

List your primary instructional objectives for your students.

  Use information gathering and decision-making skills to target a nursing career using online sources.
  Create a descriptive job profile and list educational requirements using the World Wide Web.
  Find and list at least three (3) colleges offering a nursing major using an authoritative web site.
  Write a paragraph describing the everyday life of a nurse using a personal history found on the Internet.

What role did technology play in this curriculum unit?: Students used the Internet as a tool for exploring nursing careers. They used recommended websites (and links) as much as possible.

How did you assess and evaluate student performance?: Students will: * Demonstrate the ability to read and comprehend informational materials on the Internet (Horton) * Create a portfolio of career information. * Write a well developed paragraph for each component of their portfolio. * Use the correct bibliographic form for websites used in their research. * Describe and reflect on their search strategies.

Please tell us briefly about your background & teaching experience: I am a school librarian. I have collaborated with teachers on lesson plans for career exploration.

What are your recommendations for other teachers interested in adapting this unit?: I have tailored the lesson plan to fit one career goal that some students in our school have. This lesson could easily include many different careers. The lesson could also be broadened to include many of the original goals - including resumes and cover letters.
