Use this handout to help guide students in exploring their plans beyond high school. This activity utilizes self-teaching & research to learn about what students can expect from graduating, entering college, and/or finding work. This can be used as an activity, an assessment, or a teacher-guided lesson.
This was originally created for a Career & College Communications class designed to teach students skills necessary for success in the post-secondary world. It can also be used as a conversation piece for you and your students to learn more about their ambitions moving forward.
This plan encompasses researching schools, work, learning how to budget, planning for various stages in the future, and SMART goal writing. This also uses Wisconsin Career Pathways as a resource, but is not necessary (WCP can be substituted for local/state career assistance programs and/or general research).
