Dodging the Cookie-Cutter System–Helping Students Design an Individualized Plan
Archived webinar originally presented on December 6th.
Presented by: Teresa Guia, Transitions Specialist, Prairie State College
How do you encourage students to view their High School Equivalency as a steeping stone rather than a final goal? How do we help students see the benefits of a degree, a trade, or a vocational certificate? And, when the cookie-cutter system does not work for all, how do you customize an individual plan for each student? See how this plan can look for an undocumented, bi-cultural, ESL, or HSE student. This session demonstrates best practices for creating a student’s individualized plan.
This session was sponsored by the Southern Illinois Professional Development Center in partnership with the Illinois Center for Specialized Professional Support and is part of the ongoing professional development of the Transitions Academy and the Forum for Excellence.
