Overview of chat topic

Are we really preparing Ss to be College and Career Ready?

Questions from the chat:

  • 1 – What does it mean to produce college & career ready S’s?

  • 2 – Do schools that have a focus on educating the whole kid produce S’s that are more C&C ready? How do we educate the whole kid?

  • 3 – What role do electives or non-core classes play in preparing our S’s for what they will face after they graduate?

  • 4 – How can we do better in the early years to better prepare our S’s for post high school life?

  • 5 – How can we help our right brain dominant S’s deal with a typically Left brain approach to the way we operate our schools?

  • 6 – What role does failure & adversity play in preparing C & C ready S’s & some ways to embrace failure as a learning opportunity?

  • 7 – What role does social/emotional maturity & preparedness play in developing the C&C ready student?
