I make the homeroom curriculum so here are some mini-lessons I've made for that.
I am happy to provide these resources completely free of charge.

Future Skills Fridays
I make the homeroom lessons for my middle school, and I decided to add these Future Skills mini-lessons to our Friday plans.
How to Pay Rent
Reading a Bill and Paying with a Check
Paying Bills Online
Students will compare two resumes and look for what makes a good resume vs a not-so-good one. Then they will watch this video from BIG SIS TALK with Bri to hear about the basics of a good resume and how to handle not having a lot (or any) work experience. Finally, they'll get a chance to create their own basic Google Doc resume from a template.
Job interviews can be stressful, but they get easier with practice. Students will first watch a funny video full of examples of bad interview behavior. Then they'll learn six great interview tips from GirlSpring. Finally, they'll write their answers to common interview questions and practice interviewing each other!
"I Have a Dream" Printable and Slides
A simple printable for MLK Day. Students can write their dream for the future and then you can make a little display. I also included a mini-lesson slideshow (in the speaker notes) that you can use.
