Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Life After High School


Students, in high school, usually have a plan.  They know what they want to be, and where they are going to go to college to accomplish that goal.  However, they rarely understand the ramifications of that plan.  In particular, the cost of college, student loans, amount of years of study in particular fields, and the average starting pay of careers.  This unit, based on the Foundations of Personal Finance, by Dave Ramsey, tries to expand students' knowledge to make a more encomapassing plan, hence, a better plan.

Learning Targets: 
Students will understand the long-term impact of student loans.
Students will identify reasons for not taking on debt.
Students will develop a plan to attend college without debt.
Students will identify the educational requirements, training costs, and cost of career choice..
