Concurrent Session #120 (Tuesday, July 22, 2014)
"I love GEAR UP, but I'm responsible for quality core and I don't have the students long enough as it is ...” - 9th grade teacher. GEAR UP programs are met with the unique challenge of partnering with high school teachers to serve students who need our support, while trying our best not to take them out of class so they don’t get further behind. Learn how to design and implement a comprehensive GEAR UP College and Career Readiness 9th grade course which includes 21st Century skills, career guidance, individual learning plans, learning strategies, tutoring and mentoring, and much more.
