Make sure you are working on today's assignment and not playing games. I will subtract points from this assignment if you are playing games unless you can prove you have COMPLETED the assignment.
You have until Friday at the beginning of class to complete this assignment but may turn it in early should you finish. E-mailing your assignment to me instead of printing it on paper will gain you one point extra credit for every written assignment unless told otherwise.
Today's lab will be career research.
Pick a career having to do with any of the branches of the sciences related to Environmental Science, and write a report on the career.
The report should be 1 page typed MINIMUM, double spaced, Times New Roman 12 point font, with 1" borders.
At the top right, include the following:
Title should be centered
These should take up no more than 1/4 page.
Include any schooling/training, job conditions and expectations, responsibilities, salary, benefits, etc. Basically anything you would like to know if you were searching for a particular job, including areas where jobs may be concentrated geographically.
Include a bibliography at the end for the website(s) you used to find the information included in your report.
Points will be subtracted for falling short on any of the criteria listed, although anything above and beyond will be rewarded.
At least one paragraph should include an explanation of why or how your chosen job can be included as an environmental job.
The links which follow below are starting points for ideas. You may search the following topics - Geoscience careers, meteorology careers, astronomy careers, oceanography careers, environmental careers, but remember - the job MUST be environmental in scope and responsibilities.
You may also search for specific careers in the Earth Sciences which you know, or have seen references to on the pages which follow too.
