Concurrent Session #52 (Monday, July 21, 2014)

Special/Summer Programs, Whole Student

Join TAMIU GEAR UP IV on the journey from high school to college.  In the transition from middle school to high school, students may disengage from academics. Therefore, the “Commitment to College” Ceremony was utilized to engage freshmen students to value higher education. Without these types of experiential learning opportunities, students struggle to see themselves meet their educational endeavors. The session will provide a blueprint and a planning toolkit for those who attend.  Attendees will peruse pictures, view a video of an actual ceremony, and consider different types of ceremony implementations. This session is open to all college access community members.
