Materials Needed

Lesson Plan

Provide students with the following directions:

  • Computers have quickly become an integral part of almost every work environment. With that in mind, think of a business you would like to start and consider the ways in which that business might use computers.
  • Review the job description Web sites. Then write a job description for the employee who will be responsible for the computer tasks you have for your business. In your description, clearly explain how your business uses computers and what training and/or education the applicant should have. For example, your employees probably use e-mail to communicate with vendors, manufacturers, and other employees. In your business, however, computer use is not limited to real possibilities. You are free to invent computer-based tasks that do not yet exist.
  • When you have completed the job description, write a help-wanted ad for the position.

Assessment

Evaluate students based on the completeness and accuracy of the job descriptions and ads.
