This is a perfect project for juniors and seniors as they consider their career options. In an interview on the "Growing Leaders Podcast," Dr. Tim Elmore interviews New York Times best-selling author Jon Acuff about building a career savings account. I've had seniors complete this assignment in our Economics class for the past three years, and I continue to get feedback from college students thanking me for the "most practical assignment they've ever been given."
This assignment and study guide is full of resources for students to listen to the podcast and complete the study guide. The final page of the document contains a link to a teacher's resource page to access the Word docemnt, PDFs, a basic Keynote presentation for fill-ins, answers to the blanks, an mp3 of the interview, and a contact form if I can help in any other way.
