Research shows that preparing students for college, careers, and civic participation must extend throughout a student’s academic career. Schools that excel in this area support students both in the acquisition of skills and knowledge and their application to real-world problems in projects, internships, and other experiences that allow for Linked Learning. In the process, they also focus on the development of the positive habits and beliefs critical to their success in school, work, and life.

Students who are prepared for their futures:

  • Learn to collaborate by working in teams.
  • Participate in hands-on learning applied to practical problems, often in workplace and community settings outside of school.
  • Develop social-emotional skills leading to resilience, perseverance, and a growth mind-set, which reflects students’ belief in their ability to master challenges and encourages continuous learning.
