Final Project

For the final project in this course, you will analyze the current college-readiness practices of your local school and develop a comprehensive plan for a college-readiness program for the school to implement.

For this project, you will be expected to:

  • Synthesize the course material into an action plan for a school
  • Apply the concepts of college readiness to the development of a program in a school
  • Analyze the current research and theoretical foundations of college readiness
  • Evaluate the feasibility of the college-readiness plan’s implementation

Your college-readiness program plan should have the following sections:

  1. Introduction
  2. School Overview (can be taken from Week 4 assignment)
  3. Current School Culture (can be taken from Week 6 assignment)
  4. Review of Current College-Readiness Practices (can be taken from Week 5 assignment)
  5. College-Readiness Plan: This section should utilize an organizing framework such as Conley’s (2010) Four Keys to College and Career Readiness, seven principles, or McDonough’s (2006) nine principles. Indicate the current state of the key or principle, the actions needed to address it and potential strategies to achieve the action steps. This section may be completed in table format as long as APA style is used.
  6. Conclusion
  7. References

Format: Your college readiness plan should not exceed 12–15 pages, not including the title page and references. A table of contents and abstract are not required. Incorporate at least five research sources into the plan. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.

Note: If you are not employed in K-12 Education or Higher Education, talk to your professor about possibly substituting a plan for your organization where you can focus on professional development and training plans to improve the readiness of your clients and/or employees.
