Having a difficult time making career and college choices tangible to your students? This is a multi-class period lesson plan that allows students to calculate their future cost-of-living based on their aspirations for lifestyle. It's a great reality checker, and an excellent way to help students solidify their goals and plans for getting there.
The lesson plan does require internet access or access to print ads for each category. If you do not have laptops or a computer lab, students can work in groups with newspapers.
