Advanced Programs Summer Bridge
Summer Bridge is an opportunity for students to prepare for their challenging courses in the upcoming school year.
This is designed for students who are taking their first advanced course, but the information would be valuable to any student. This is the fifth year of Summer Bridge, but the first version completely online.
This year we have developed four modules to help students think about their motivation and goals for their challenging advanced courses. The four modules can be done at the student’s pace and students completing all the modules will receive recognition for their work.
The modules were developed based on the ideas in Culturally Relevant Teaching and the Brain, 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, strategies from AVID, and other important ideas from brain science.
The goal of Summer Bridge and the modules is to help students move toward being independent, empowered learners that can be in control of and advocate for the own their own learning.
