5 MoreGo to High School IEP/504 IDEA; success Needs are known by others Accommodations managed by others Study & homework? Schedule & absences College No IEP/504; why? ADA: access Students must self identify Students work with dS and instructor STUDY & HOMEWORK Can create schedule; absences carry responsibilities

6  Students are aspirational and motivated to succeed;  Adequate academic preparation is essential;  Understanding one’s learning strengths and learning strategies to work with academic or social issues that get in the way is critical.

7  Challenging academic dependencies and perceived deficiencies (e.g., “I can’t…” is not useful);  Academic vulnerabilities and possible social disconnectedness will occur;  These are starting points for building capacities, not end points.  Students will discover new balance points if they persevere and use some kind of support system.  Working hard is more important than being the smartest person in the class and not working hard.

8  One standard for all in the meritocracy;  Access a right; success a responsibility;  Students need to talk with others about how to become a help-seeker rather than a help-receiver. “It’s kind of a dilemma just due to the fact that I do need help and more guidance, but at the same time I want the guidance to rely on myself.”

9 Ongoing and progressive development towards:  Ownership: “I own my education now.”  Agency: ◦ Responsibility for one’s successes and challenges; ◦ Locus of control for decision-making and learning from experience; ◦ Commitment to working through problems to progress towards goals.  Learning to mitigate vulnerabilities with resilience: ◦ “I just kind of want to look back, see what I did wrong…just kind of shake it off. It’s why I get up as quick as possible, let it go and try to make something of it (for) the good.”
