Opportunity at a Glance: The fourth annual College Awareness Day will be held on January 11. This year’s theme, “Best of the Boroughs: College Access Edition,” will showcase inspiring best practices for creating a college-going culture. In support of College Awareness Day, review and utilize a collection of resources which are available on WeTeachNYC, and in all DOE languages, to help your school community prepare for the day:
- College Access for All – Middle School “College-U” Curriculum: Includes a 10-module interactive collection designed to engage seventh-grade students in early college awareness. In particular, see module 1 “Why College?” to help students measure what they already know about college and to debunk myths surrounding whether college is a viable option for all students.
- College Access for All – Middle School “Family-U” Curriculum: Includes eight, parent-facing modules to engage families in early college-awareness activities. In particular, see module 1 “Why is College Important To My Family?” to help families identify the various benefits of attending college. See the “CUNY Family Guide” for information for parents interested in going back to school.
- College-Going Culture Toolkit: Includes a collection of ideas and fun activities for you to use in promoting college as a future prospect for your students.
- College Access for All – Middle School Include-U Curriculum: Includes a series of five modules, which aim to support college awareness and readiness development for students with disabilities.
