Class Experience

Students will end this workshop with the 4-3-2-1 model:
- What college are 4 (for) me? Students will have a list of must haves to guide them in their college search. This includes location (near or far/big city or suburban campus), perks (sports teams or housing), and options for study (major/minor, study aboard, internships) as well as things colleges consider as well.
- What are my top 3 by 3's? Students will understand the top 3 by 3 model for applying. They will understand that applying is about options so they should have 3 overall top schools (if you get accepted, your bags are packed yesterday), 3 top love schools (not your top choice, but you'd love to go) and 3 top safety schools (in case anything happens, you know you can go to these schools, and be okay) for a total of 9 schools. **Students should have a MINIMUM of 9 schools for application, but are encouraged to find more**
- What 2 (to) study? Some students are undecided when they begin to apply and others have it all figured out. Either way, not all colleges offer the same areas of study. Students will learn how to look at course, major, and minor offerings.
- Is this the 1 for me? After it's all said and done, you can only commit to one school. Students will receive a list of things to consider when accepting their offers. 

Students will walk away with the aforementioned knowledge and the tools to work on their college application process as soon as possible.
I have worked with non-profits around New York City, in the public and charter school systems, teaching Creative Writing, Literature, and Life Skills. For the last two and a half years, I have taught college access to high school students specifically in New York City through the non-profit Let's Get Ready. I currently still teach and am a program director for New York City sites. In my lessons, we went over every part of the college application process including choosing colleges, how to apply, how to understand financial aid, how to ask for recommendations, as well as how to commit to the school. In my life, every college I've applied to for both Associates and Bachelors I have gotten accepted to. I have sent over 100 students to colleges of their choice, written recommendation letters and mentored them to and through college. I have also been, and continue to be, on panels for High Schools throughout New York City, speaking about steps to take to apply to college as well as being active on campus and taking advantage of resources.
There will be a pre-assessment available to students before the workshop time. This is essential to measuring the gained knowledge through the workshop. There will be a follow up post-assessment as well. 
It is suggested to have paper and a writing utensil for note-taking. Reference materials will be created and distributed after the meeting date, as well as websites for further exploration.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be an evaluation in the beginning and end of the workshop. This can be available to the parents upon request to see their child's progression.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
