A week ago Tuesday, I went to Kansas City to the beautiful Kauffman Foundation Conference Center for the College Readiness Dialogues. I especially enjoyed the roundtable discussion and Jean Donham's keynote before lunch. I was lucky enough to sit beside Dr. Donham, and she was a delightful and sensible person. Her research is useful to those of us attempting to prepare students for college level work.
Her article under the Toolkit link is worth reading, and it is also linked here.
Heather Braum from NEKLS also mentioned that Sarah Goodwin Thiel, Bayliss Harsh, and Carmen Orth-Alfie at KU Libraries' Center for Community Affiliate Initiatives shared a wonderful resource they have put together for high school students, teachers, and librarians about writing, research and study skills, to support college readiness.
After lunch, we also enjoyed walking across the street to the Kauffman Memorial Garden. (MHouse)
