What are your Post- Secondary Goals? And what is the path to get there?
Goal + Path College & Career Readiness is defined as possessing the academic knowledge, 21st century learning skills, and non-cognitive abilities that enable students to successfully contribute to the global community and pursue postsecondary education without remediation. What are the 3 major components you see? 1.Academic knowledge 2.21st Century Skills 3.Non-cognitive abilities All 3 components are needed for both college AND career readiness. Collecting evidence of your readiness will help build your RESUMES and college applications.
1) Academic Knowledge (e.g. Academic Performance (grades, TCAP) and 4-Year Plan 2) 21 st Century and Workforce Readiness Skills (e.g. communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking 3) Non-cognitive Abilities, which include… - Academic Beliefs (e.g. “I can improve with effort”) - Academic Behaviors (e.g. “I attend class and complete my homework” GOAL: College, Career, and Academic Goal(s)__ ______________________ Path to Post-Secondary Readiness

Goal + Path + Motivation People who are motivated to set goals and create paths toward goals tend to… o Set learning-based goals (NOT performance-based) that are within their reach (NOT outside their control) o Have internal desire to learn new skills and master new tasks o Track progress and increase effort with failure or setback o Create new paths to goals when face obstacles or barriers o Use positive self-talk (e.g. “Keep going!” “You can get this done.” As a result, they… o Receive higher scores on achievement tests, higher overall grade point averages, and higher graduation rates, even when controlling for intelligence o Have self-esteem, confidence, and perceived problem-solving abilities and sense of control o Have less anxiety Snyder, C.R., Shorey, H.S., Cheavens, J., Pulvers, K.M., Adams, V.H., and Wiklund, C. (2002). Hope and Academic Success in College, Journal of Educational Psychology, 94, 820-826.
Readiness Rubric Academic Knowledge Academic knowledge includes mastery of reading, writing, math, and science as measured by student grades, standardized assessments (e.g. TCAP and college entrance exams), college prep courses completed, and credits earned. Get out your Post-Secondary Readiness Rubric and complete the first section entitled, “Academic Knowledge” Take note of your successes to highlight in the Education section of your resume !
Readiness Rubric Non-Cognitive Abilities Non-cognitive abilities refer to the behaviors, skills, attitudes, and strategies that are not reflected in test scores, but are crucial to both academic, college, and lifelong career performance. Non-cognitive abilities include the following: Behaviors (e.g. attendance, homework completion, study skills, learning strategies, and persistence) Beliefs (e.g. belief that one can improve with effort and hard work as well as the belief that one is responsible for his/her successes and failures) Use the post-secondary Readiness Rubric to assess your non- cognitive behaviors and beliefs. Think about how to highlight these characteristics in your resume and/or cover letter (e.g. school awards or nominations, scholarships earned, teacher references, etc.)
Research on Non- cognitive Behaviors Attendance and study habits strongly predict student’s grades, even more than standardized test scores or any other student background characteristics. Grades predict high school and college performance and graduation Grades even predict people’s future alary. o For each point increase in GPA, men and women earned 20% more money in their jobs 9 years after high school, even after controlling for educational attainment (Miller, 1998). o Why might this be? Because students who attend class and complete their work are likely to practice work habits needed in college as well as in the workforce.
Collaboration Self Direction Information Literacy Invention Critical Thinking “Think Deep, Think Different” Collaboration “Working Together, Learning Together” Invention/Creativity “Creating Solutions” Self Direction “Own Your Learning” Information Literacy “Untangling the Web” Readiness Rubric 21 st Century Skills Use the Post-Secondary Readiness Rubric to assess your development of 21 st Century & Workforce Skills. Think about how you might highlight these skills in your resume!
Self-Assessment & Goal Setting For those who finish early, o Complete discussion questions and evaluate your areas of strength and areas for improvement. o Select one of the categories where you most need to improve (e.g. academic performance, 21 st century skills, non-cognitive attitudes, or non- cognitive behaviors) o Write a goal statement. Include what steps you will take, by when, to see improvement in this area.
Post-secondary readiness goals include both academic as well as other non-cognitive indicators. As a result, it makes sense that many of these beliefs, behaviors, and skills are learned outside the classroom, through activities that support but are not directly a part of your academic program. Examples: 1. Service Learning activities (e.g. Community Builders, Youth in Service to America, etc.) 2. Extracurricular activities (e.g. sports teams, clubs, explorers programs, pre-collegiate programs, etc.) Service learning and extracurricular activities can help you discover your talents, explore your interests, reach your goals and even build your resume.
Service Learning Opportunities Service-learning is combining work on a community project with classroom studies. It is volunteering your time with the end goal of using skills you have learned in the classroom. Benefits: o Hands-on experiences assist in your learning. o Looks great on your college applications or resumes. o Your community is a better place because of your efforts. o Encourages growth in your problem-solving, leadership, and decision- making skills. o Could lead to possible career options in your future. o Provides you with the opportunity to meet and work with leaders in your community See handout for Service Learning Opportunities
