Lesson plan 4/9/18 to 4/20/18

Personnel financial planning
Students will conduct career research including discovering salary ranges for various jobs they are interested in and determining how to obtain the training needed for those jobs.
Students will build a post High School Budget based on where they plan to be and what they plan to be doing starting in August of 2018. The student are encouraged (very strongly) to go over this budget plan with their parents if the parents are planning or expected to provide financial support. I will be monitoring to ensure students are completing the work, but I will not be collecting the information as I want it to be real information which I consider private.
Career exploration
Students will create a fictional American worker and build a power point or other presentation to explain how that person lives. Students will randomly choose a job, a location, and the possibility of special situations. They will use this information to determine where they work how they live and all financial conditions the fictional worker enjoys.
