The last two years of high school are very stressful for students. The idea of taking the SATs and/or ACTs, applying to college, and choosing a major can be terrifying, especially if you don't know where to begin. Each student will be able to explore a different aspect of the college process (financial, academic, or application) by examining different resources. After, the students will be given time to educate their panel. This activity is a precursor for the unit: The Game of Life in which students are given the objective to write, revise, and publish a financial guidebook/brochure for young adults (age 18-25) that will prepare them for “the game of life.”
