If you were unable to attend 10th grade postsecondary night, please take some time to review the slides, which are shared below.
Last week during Advisory, I discussed why it is important to get involved outside of class. Students looked at 3 sample student resumes and acted as the selection committee for the Boettcher scholarship. With the scholarship selection criteria in mind, students reviewed each resume and then chose a scholarship recipient from the 3 sample resumes.
The slides from that lesson are included in the postsecondary night slides.
Take a moment to check out the College Essay Guy's Values Exercise (video), which guides students on some self-exploration to determine which extracurricular choices might be a good fit for them.
*I've also included some sample financial aid award letters - take a look for information on what is included and how colleges attempt to meet students' financial need.
