Most Seniors have decided where they're going to college, or not, and have lost a little motivation to be at school. Well why not give them some of that motivation back? My College & Career Readiness unit is a great way to "fill up" the last few weeks of school, but also prepare them for summer jobs, college majors, and future careers.
If you have Juniors, this too is a great time to complete this unit with your students since college applications are around the corner, and summer jobs are too!
This unit teaches students how to:
-Write a proper Resume
-Complete a proper Cover Letter
-An activity to find errors in a Cover Letter
-A College/Career Research Project & Rubric
I also add to this unit by having a week where I invite business members from the community to come speak to my Juniors/Seniors about their careers. It gives them a taste of what they can aspire to, what goes into that career...what you should major in for that career, what you *can earn, what are the typical hours, etc. The parents of the Juniors/Seniors REALLY appreciated this unit; I got TONS of thank you notes from the kiddos' parents :)
So enjoy your last few weeks of school and help the kids out one more time! :)
