Project Idea

Students learn about the daily professional-life of a person and share with others. They will choose any professional that they are inspired by, and want to know more about their professional work-culture and life. One day with a Professional is a project about understanding lives of others by being with them for a day. During the day, learners will note down the timelines and workflow of the professional, record messages, conversations that they have while working, and take pictures describing various activities. After that, learners document all aspects of a typical day of the professional through a picture-book.

Through this project they will sharpen their oral communications skills and narrative writing. They will talk about their project experience during the oral presentation in front of their peers.
