Description-

  • Cut through the chaos and find the path that's right for you!

    Deciding what to do after high school is one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make. And that's a lot of pressure to deal with (especially when everyone else is telling you what they think you should be doing)! Undecided will help you come to grips with this often-overwhelming time of transition by putting the decision-making power back where it belongs: with you.

    Undecided begins by helping students think seriously about who they are and what they want and then moves on to dissect the various options that are available after high school, such as enrolling in a training program, attending a community college, taking a gap year, enlisting in the military, pursuing a traditional four-year degree, and more. It also takes an in-depth look at how to manage student debt, what you can expect to earn, the kind of lifestyle you may lead, and the possible pitfalls of all of these scenarios. Full of checklists, anecdotes, brainstorming activities, and journal exercises, this book will help you stop procrastinating, put your stress aside, and get busy living.

  • Kirkus

    August 15, 2020
    An information-packed reference source that details a multitude of post-secondary possibilities. After opening with a discussion of assessing one's interests, personality, and financial needs, Morgan plainly lays out teenagers' options after high school in sections covering various academic and vocational educational options; military, civil, and foreign service paths; entering the workforce; and taking a gap year. The emphasis throughout is on being true to one's core values and making choices that are realistic and suited to readers' own situations rather than succumbing to others' notions of what one ought to do after high school. Guided questions posed for thoughtful consideration are peppered throughout. Refreshingly, the author tries hard to make the book inclusive of the various socio-economic backgrounds, although some statements and advice assume a middle-class framework in which parents expect young people to attend college and are able to tour campuses before applying. However, detailed and balanced discussions of military service and trade schools (along with important warnings about for-profit schools) round things out. This updated edition of Morgan's 2014 original is packed with information, balancing encouragement, empathy, and enthusiasm with sober, pragmatic advice anchored by worksheets, timelines, and other practical tools. A useful and comprehensive handbook for teens contemplating life after high school. (resources, bibliography, index) (Nonfiction. 14-18)
