Why We Did What We Did (Part III) Research shows that… “Students who have information about graduation requirements…are more likely to have higher aspirations and are less likely to fail” (Dimmitt, 2003). “Ninth grade is a critical year because students need skills early to graduate” (Cooper & Liou, 2007). © 2011 by Tracy Calimquim & Camille Sta Elena

Perceptions of the Lesson “I feel more prepared to take on high school.” ~ 9 th -grade student “Now I know what I need to do to go college!” ~ 9 th -grade student athlete “The information was very valuable and I plan to use it to remind my students of the bigger picture.” ~ CORE teacher © 2011 by Tracy Calimquim & Camille Sta Elena
In Summary Students were able to make the connection between rigorous course work to college and career readiness. Students received valuable information about how the A-G courses align with high-school graduation requirements. © 2011 by Tracy Calimquim & Camille Sta Elena
Limitations Scheduling issues split the lesson into two days limited time to have in-depth discussions student absences schedule conflict with other school-wide events during CORE Certain components on the pre/post-test were not covered in the lesson © 2011 by Tracy Calimquim & Camille Sta Elena
What We Learned Have a discussion with administration and other staff members to see if we can do the lesson during a class period Give the pre-test a week earlier rather than making it the beginning of the lesson © 2011 by Tracy Calimquim & Camille Sta Elena
Next Steps Present data to administration to encourage collaborative efforts for improving college eligibility data Follow-up with 9 th -graders’ “Course Request” forms for next year’s courses to monitor enrollment into college-prep requirements Continue monitoring completion of college-prep requirements for 9 th graders until 2014 © 2011 by Tracy Calimquim & Camille Sta Elena
Thank you to the principal, Mr. Madden, the school counseling staff, especially Mr. Johnson & Ms. McDonald, and the 9 th -grade CORE teachers for their collaboration and support. And of course, thank you to all the students who helped make this experience amazing! © 2011 by Tracy Calimquim & Camille Sta Elena
