Ben commented on Field Trips to College

Trever,

At Roxbury Latin we take First Generation and financial aid students on a three day college trip each June, emphasizing different college types. They see big, small, urban, and rural options. I've always wondered how to make even better use of the travel time between colleges.

How might we design school wide college visits that incorporate a reflection of informational component during the travel time? 

Might some of these lessons be delivered as online content, challenges, or projects? 

Meghan,
i like the emphasis on real world problem solving, iterating, and delivering a final project. 

How might we bring these off campus community members into the college process? As career mentors? As key recommenders and coaches, and advocates during the college process? As presenters and advisors?
