Facilitators: Dr. Joseph Goins and Kristin Hunt
This session will address ways in which programs assist students in visualizing their plans. It will address academic and career mapping, as well as how MyCAP can be used to make students current actions/choices relevant to their long-term plans in ways that they can see and feel.
Facilitator: Hasan Davis, J.D.
Presenters: Omari Walker and Maria Fernandes of New Heights Charter School
This session will address how EC programs create a college-going culture that ultimately shifts how students (and staff, faculty, and families) see themselves as college students. Hasan will be joined by NHSC leadership who will share how they have instilled this culture at the Commonwealth’s only wall-wall Early College High School.
Facilitator: Yaw Asante-Bio
Presenters: Robin Kahn and Trevor Stokes
This session will focus on skills and knowledge which Early College students should be exposed to as part of their pathway experience but may not receive through college coursework. Robin will share the importance of financial literacy skills and Trevor will share the importance of soft skills and aspects of employability.
There is no doubt we are all experiencing a storm in our lives and for many teachers, families, and students it has had a significant impact on their emotional and mental health. In the midst of today’s chaos, educational systems must help proactively build coping skills in students and adults. This session starts with a brief review of session one, then covers all of that and more. Join us for an extremely useful session not only for working with students, but also one you will find helpful personally and for those about whom you care.
This session will discuss strategies EC programs can utilize to open access to Early College programming to all of their students. It will then focus specifically on pathways a few of our MA EC programs have built to specifically on-ramp English Language learners into Early College programming. This session will also serve as the launch to a professional learning community on ELL and Early College.
