Purchasing this curriculum gives you FREE access to the MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENT Curriculum:  College Conversations: Empowering Families to Support Student Aspirations

These community conversations “workshops” were created by UC Berkeley Center for Educational Partnerships to meet the needs of parents and families throughout the K-12 experience. These conversations are part of a college-going framework that includes increasing College Aspirations, College Knowledge, and College Planning.

  • College Aspirations:  We want ALL students to see themselves in college and know that they can be successful in any post-secondary option they choose.
  • College Knowledge:  Once students have developed the pre-disposition to college-going, they need access to college knowledge connecting their aspirations to reality.
  • College Planning:  With college knowledge in place, students will have the necessary foundation to plan their academic futures.
The elementary school workshops are focused on College Aspirations, middle school workshops are focused on College Aspirations and College Knowledge, and high school workshops are focused on College Knowledge and College Planning.
