9 IDEAL REAL vs.

10 At this point I showed a brief video – it was too large to post as part of this PowerPoint but you can click on “Obama” back in the post on The Hub next to the link you clicked on for this PowerPoint The young man poses a question and Obama does answer it – I just cut him off early– yes I cut off the President. I just wanted to include this young man because I think he is so cute and they all look so proud with the opportunity to dialogue with the president. But the way Pres. Obama prefaces his answer is what is important to me. He ‘redefines college’. Let’s listen

11  Post Secondary Education or Training includes many options – Consider ALL the options Career & Technical Education The prep/gap year Bachelor’s Degree Bachelor's Degree in Technology 2-year Associates Degrees Associate Degree in Engineering Technology One Year Technical Certificates ROP Military Service Distance Education Private Career Schools & Colleges Formal Apprenticeships Programs

12  The new term is ‘ADVANCED TRAINING’

13  You have to get your B.A.  As long as you go to college you will be successful  Where are you going after HS?  Postpone career choices as long as possible - You don’t want to close any doors.

14 What You Love To Do What Your Good at Doing What the World Really Needs ? Determine the goal:

15  In the sixth - eighth grades, all students should participate in activities designed to help them explore & narrow several career interests.  In the ninth – tenth grades, all students should participate in activities that allow them to verify these career options.  By the eleventh grade (at the latest) students should have a career plan including a Plan B.

16  Student Planners  Navigator and HUB  “I've Already Been Admitted to College” Program  Humboldt LIVE!  Ideas at Work  CAS/CAF  Cal-SOAP

17  “Are aligned with college and work expectations;  Are clear, understandable and consistent;  Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher-order skills;  Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards;  Are informed by other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and  Are evidence-based.” (NGA & CCSS, 2010, p. 1)”

18  National Association for Gifted Children (2010). 

19 College-Prep and CTE are complementary not competing goals...

20  A combination of 60% academic courses and 40% CTE is the most effective drop-out prevention program in the American high school.  (Plank, 2002)

21  Students in CTE pathways: –More likely to complete a-g requirements (50% vs 34%) –More likely to pass the CAHSEE (71% vs 55%) –Had higher graduation rates (96% vs 87%) –Had lower drop out rates –Higher postsecondary participation

22  CTE is to some teens what AP & Honors is to others

23  Acknowledge that all higher education counts – redefine ‘college’ – Advanced Training  Discourage the ‘one way to win’ philosophy  Challenge the claim that more people need a university degree to be successful  Acknowledge a university degree does not guarantee access to high wages  Focus on the goal – career exploration is key  College readiness does not equal career readiness  College-Prep and CTE are complementary not competing goals

25  Make The Hub a favorite and check there frequently  Humboldt Live! (ask about it at your school)  Navigator (contact me for sign up information)  If you or your child use Facebook Friend ‘Humboldt Counselor’ Like ‘The Humboldt Hub’
