CSUS Staff Attend Redefining Ready: Connecting Adolescent Development to College Readiness Workshop
On Thursday March 13, Principal Fernandez, Ms. Ahern, Ms. DeNufrio, Ms. Gordon, Ms. Johnson, and Ms. Preval attended a professional development workshop entitled Redefining Ready: Connecting Adolescent Development to College Readiness workshop. The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Suzanne Bouffard and explored how adolescent development influences college preparation and planning and how educators can use that knowledge to support all young people wherever they are on the path to college. It focused on building college-going identity and other developmental skills needed for college and career success. “Dr. Suzanne Bouffard, a researcher and writer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Dr. Mandy Savitz-Romer, the director of the Prevention Science and Practice Program and senior lecturer on education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, are co-authors of Ready, Willing and Able: A Developmental Approach to College Access and Success.”

This workshop was hosted by Harvard University, in an effort to deepen the work of the Project Teach program. Project Teach has been bringing 7th graders in Cambridge Public Schools to Harvard for over 25 years with a goal of deepening the dialogue around “college-going identity” which we will talk about tonight.
