Keep high school students focused with these free activities including a formative assessment, alumni interview, and real-world discussion activity. Use the self-reflective survey to get students thinking critically about their futures. Furthermore, encourage students to write and discuss situations requiring problem-solving. The prompts can be used as bell ringers or task cards, or for learning stations and cooperative learning.

These activities are perfect for engaging students and teachers with “senior slump” during the last days of the school year, and students will love that you let them prepare for life after graduation while practicing ELA skills!
