Using the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago Schools’ research principles of relationship, relevance, and rigor as a guide for developing our student and family engagement strategies, this session will explore the various facilitation styles essential to reaching all types of learners to promote GEAR UP objectives. A comprehensive college and career readiness workshop curriculum created by the GEAR UP Chicago Alliance will be highlighted as an example of how to incorporate these strategies for effective facilitation and engaged learners.
