Week 3: By Rasheem & TJ

 Last week: Our team accomplished the following:
  1. We did research on our group words/vocabulary for better poems
  2. We went to Manpower to meet our Career Coaches
  3. We did a presentation to the team on our poems
  4. We also listened to feedback and revised our poems

The job skills that we worked on included:
  1. Communicating & collaborating with each other
  2. Dividing up tasks amongst team members
  3. Problem solving
  4. Technical writing skills
  5. Being prepared to work with our Career Coaches
  6. Professionalism
  7. Giving & Receiving feedback
Next week, our team is going to:
  1. Think about marketing: How will we advertise and sell the stuff we create?
  2. Open studio: Keep working on our poems and start practicing working with fabric and markers
  3. Critical thinking & problem solving
  4. The important one that our team needs to do is communicating better - with more respect
Intern thoughts about the program:
On Monday we met up with our career coaches again to cover the first topic we picked.We were glad to meet our coaches so we can learn more about real jobs -- they can help us become better people and workers.
