I hope you are having a fantastic week! I know loving on students and giving so much of yourself every single day takes a toll, so I make sure it is my goal to make your life a little bit easier around here!
So today, I am sharing my current fffaaaaavvvoriiittee warm-up activity for introducing college and career to students! This summer, I taught a career planning course to 10th and 11th graders and they had so much fun learning about how to research their careers and chatting about what it takes to get to college!
Are you tired of just giving morning announcements on different colleges?
No idea how to get students really thinking and chatting about life after HS?
How about reaching those students who have no clue about what they want to do about college OR career?
If so, you have to try out my favorite resource, 100 college and career icebreaker questions!

I know many of my students have a lot of assumptions about certain careers and colleges from friends, family and their peers! So what better way to hash out all of the myths and topics they don’t normally think about than with this resource!
My icebreaker resource is a great way to introduce a college and career research activity to students and is a great starting point for any college and career ready program!
Here is what is included in this resource!
I never have a college conversation without talking about career! We have to start with the career questions before moving into any talk about college!
Career discussions influences all college discussions!
I hope this post gives you some ideas on how to you can start the conversation about college and career with your students!
