This lesson is designed to follow the Intermediate SAEs:The Next Step. The objective is to continue to move students through the research and development of their Foundational Career SAE. The students will continue to work on their Foundational SAE project based on their career interest, but research topics at the advanced level. The teacher may choose to only use the Foundational SAE project or they can also include an immersion SAE project that students keep track of their time, income and expenses over the course of the class. The students will participate in weekly assignments for their Foundational SAE and if they are completing an immersion SAE they will keep track of their hours each week. Starting SAE projects in the classroom should be simple for the teacher and students. Minimum expectations that can still produce success for all students would be tracking 1-hour of SAE time per week, exploring one career topic per week, and recording one financial entry per month. A final report or project at the end of the class would also be a minimum expectation for all students.

The students create an E-Portfolio using Google Sites. The students create a resume and cover letter that they include in their E-portfolio. In addition, the students have to upload six artifacts from a list provided on the rubric. The E- portfolio is something they can add to throughout high school, edit, and keep as they move toward achieving their career goal. The students share their E-portfolio with the class once they complete the project. The students learn how important it is to be able to demonstrate their skills to their future employers.
Students will need to use their knowledge of a quality resume to discover a good, bad and ugly resume found online. This will help students look for key components of communication which are expected to belong on a quality resume.
