Summer course: Post-Secondary Success: In Schools, Communities, and Families
Posted by Harvard University on October 30, 2018
June 23-26, 2019
While students are presented with many options after completing high school, the path to post-secondary success is filled with uncertainty and challenges. How do we best guide students to make well-informed decisions about their post-secondary options?
Led by HGSE faculty member Mandy Savitz-Romer and designed for school- and community-based professionals, this program bridges the gap between research and practice, building upon the strong foundation of existing practices while deepening understanding of the critical issues that influence post-secondary readiness and success.
In this program, you will:
- EXAMINE the research behind adolescent development and how it applies to preparing students for post-secondary success
- CONSIDER the effects of race, family income, disability, and immigration status on post-secondary opportunity and success
- IDENTIFY opportunities and barriers for students and learn effective approaches for ensuring the success of all students
- DEVELOP systems and learning plans for supporting students on paths to post-secondary readiness and success.
