Future Ready: Getting All Students Prepared For College And Careers

from 35.00

Course Description: By the end of high school, every student should be prepared for their futures, whether that includes a two- or four-year college education, job training program, or successful career plan. In order to be successful in these paths, students need to be proficient in a foundational knowledge base, a set of transitional skills to shift from K12 to postsecondary education, and a source of cognitive strategies to self-advocate and learn. However, unique barriers exist for specific groups of students to attain these knowledge and skills, leading to a significant population of graduates unsuccessfully completing their career goals and postsecondary education paths.

The purpose of this class is to address the barriers preventing groups of students from being college and career ready. More specifically, this course will analyze the challenges that face low-income students, first-generation students, students of color, LGBTQ students, students with disabilities, and undocumented students. Participants in this course will reflect on existing resources and policies which act to increase student success, including Affirmative Action and Title IX. At the end of this course, participants will reflect on what they can do to increase the college and career readiness in their students, and they will develop an implementation plan to increase the college and career readiness of their marginalized students.

This is a one credit course.
