Guest speakers are great to be used in college prep classes throughout the year. Guest speakers can be featured for different careers, types of colleges, etc. Guest speakers give students a window into a career that may be unknown to them.
To keep students engaged with the sessions I like to have the guest speakers prepare a slideshow to display during the talk, and for students to take notes. In this resource you will find both an editable Google Slideshow and a printer friendly (or Google Classroom ready) note form for students to take notes.
