Recent years have seen a growing mandate for schools to ensure students’ readiness for college and careers. However, there are few practical frameworks for moving toward a system where all students are prepared to be lifelong learners. This Four Keys guide presents educators with a simple conceptual model they can use to make practical, day-to-day decisions about how to make their schools places where more students are fully prepared to succeed in college and careers. The book will draw on both theory and practice—it will be where Dr. David Conley's “Four Keys” theoretical model (Think, Know, Act, Go) meets with EPIC's extensive practice consulting with schools across the country. This user-friendly, interactive guide will enable educators to support student aspirations by providing tools teachers can use to help students take ownership of their own learning.
