By Emily M. Devor, Ed.D. and Sarah O’Connor, Ed.D.
COLLEGE CONVERSATIONS: 140 Ways to Engage Pre-K-12th Grade Students for College and Career Readiness Success offers not only a college readiness tool for a teacher or even a school site but also a systemic support that, when implemented across the district, provides deep, thematic experiences for all students every month for the thirteen years of a student's schooling. An approach supporting the idea that ALL students are college ready by fostering CONCEPTUAL AWARENESS, creating TANGIBLE EXPERIENCES, and supporting SKILLFUL APPLICATION to college ensures a college-going culture school and district-wide.
Now is the time for consistent conversations with students throughout their educational journey starting at pre-kindergarten to ensure all students are college ready and able to thrive in college once they arrive. This book provides a pre-kindergarten through the twelfth-grade systemic tool to promote college readiness for all that is not only comprehensive but also developmentally appropriate and set up to be delivered by classroom teachers. If we are going to endorse going to college to a student and tell them that their hard work is essential for college and their careers, it is also our job to support their readiness for college, every step of the way.
