Rating

This College and Career Awareness for Elementary and Middle School Students augments the Pre-College and Career Readiness Curriculum for Students and Their Families (2017, 2018) which was designed for primarily for high school students. Feedback from school counselors led to this development of materials for earlier grades. The current version includes activities and lessons for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, elementary and middle school students. The new materials were developed and shared by the College Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV) and GEAR UP Washington State. Additionally, instructions for introducing students to the highly engaging online platform Whyville© were provided by Jen Sun, President of Numedeon. Whyville© is a virtual world designed for children as young as 8 years old which encourages self-directed exploration of ideas, careers, and community challenges.
