Check out each product individually, but save $$$ by purchasing this bundle! The products included in the bundle are:
Financial Goals Lesson Plan (PPT + Digital Vision Board Project + SMART Goals): This product contains a PowerPoint on time frame and S.M.A.R.T. goals, instructions for creating a digital vision board, instructions for writing S.M.A.R.T. goals, and rubric to grade the two elements of the project. In this project students will create a digital vision board for their future in Canva (instructions included). Then students must write a short-term, mid-term, and long-term goal using the S.M.A.R.T. criteria and identify 3 factors that may influence each goal. The file also gives a sample goal and 3 factors that could influence to help guide students in their goal creation.
Career Research Internet Activity: This file is a Career Research Project. I use this assignment with my Personal Finance class. In this assignment students will take an interest inventory, identify careers to research, use the Occupational Outlook Handbook to research these careers, and reflect on their research.
Interview Role Play Scenarios: This product contains 5 role-play scenario task cards and notes to the teacher. This activity provides scenarios for students to act out when covering interviews and careers. Ask for 5 student volunteers. You will have one interviewer and four interviewees. One of the four interviewees should be a “good” interview and three of the four interviewees are “bad” interviews.
a. Have students act out scenarios provided.
b. After each student’s role-play, discuss strengths and weaknesses of the interview.
Cover Letter Assignment: This product includes brief assignment instruction, a sample student cover letter, and a rubric for grading the project. The assignment instructions provide three different jobs students can choose from to apply to and a list of required elements for the cover letter. I like to have students write a cover letter for a job they could currently obtain so that they could tweak the cover letter for a job they may really want to apply for. The assignment instructions are in written in Microsoft PowerPoint so you can easily change the jobs for your area.
Career Research Outline, Report, and Presentation: This product contains detailed instructions for conducting career research, writing an outline, rough draft, final draft, and creating a presentation. This product also contains a 200-point rubric for grading student work. Students take an interest inventory to help them select a career of interest. Students then write an outline, rough draft, final draft, and create a PowerPoint Presentation on the career they select.
This bundle pairs well with the project You're the Hiring Manager! (Writing Job Descriptions and Interview Questions) which can be purchased separately by clicking the link or is included in the Food Truck Business Simulation Semester Project Bundle.
