Created By:
 Texas GEAR UP

Grade Level: 12th

Introduction for Educators: Your students are officially about to begin their final year! A quick evaluation will help them stay on track and finish strong. 

Introduction for Students: It’s officially the beginning of your final year of high school. You're almost there! Take a moment to make sure you're still on track. You certainly don’t want to come this far and slip up from carelessness.

The Activity: Take another look at the general requirements for your diploma, as well as the requirements for your school's specific plan. Compare it with your schedule this year. Are all your remaining requirements on your schedule? If not, how can you rearrange things to make them fit? If necessary, schedule another meeting with your guidance counselor or your GEAR UP advisor.

Bonus Features: Share these reflection questions with your students: What will be the greatest challenge in finishing your diploma plan this year? What steps can you take to overcome that challenge?
