Students are encouraged to attend college, but oftentimes they do not plan ahead even though they know that will be their next educational step. This assignment allows students the opportunity to explore their next year in college. They will choose a school, identify potential classes to take as a freshman college student, explore the costs of attending this school, and explain their current plan for paying for their college degree. The "preview" includes the template to be used with this assignment.
Note: this resource is a great follow-up assignment to the lesson on student loans, but it may also be used on its own.
