This lesson is designed to help students move from their Foundational SAE to an Immersion SAE. The students will continue to work on their Foundational SAE project based on their career interest, but they will also be introduced to Immersion SAEs. The teacher may choose to only use the Foundational SAE project to get started, but they should work toward helping their students move their SAE project to include one or more Immersion SAE projects. The students will participate in weekly Immersion SAE record keeping. Starting SAE projects in the classroom should be simple for the teacher and students. Minimum expectations that can still produce success for all students would be tracking 1-hour of SAE time per week, exploring one career topic per week, and recording one financial entry per month. A final report or project at the end of the class would also be a minimum expectation for all students. Over time the students expectations for their Immersion SAE projects can be expanded to include more record keeping and financial entries.
Students will be able to:
-Identify what things colleges are looking for when evaluating applicants
-Discuss the purpose of a high school transcript and how they’re affected by Honors, AP, and IB courses
-Create a 4-square that helps them plan their high school activity
