This product contains everything you need to help 8th grade students develop individualized graduation plans. It contains a student presentation, slide notes, and an IGP form designed for students who will follow a traditional high school schedule. Topics addressed include high school graduation requirements, concentrations and electives, block scheduling, Advanced Placement classes, dual enrollment, and GPA calculations.
This product was created for students in Georgia. However, the basic information is relevant for other states in which students follow a traditional schedule. I have included several slides that are editable so you can add your school name, change the agenda, add additional notes, or create additional instructional slides around the IGP form. There is also a slide to add your contact information. The IGP form is not editable.
The PowerPoint presentation is 23 pages plus 4 additional slides that are editable. A nine-page PDF file is also included filled with tips for delivering the presentation and a blank template for making student copies.
