暑期大学预备课程

For high school seniors graduating this spring and going on to college in the fall.

计划日期: 2024年7月14日星期日- 7月27日星期六*

成本: 4060美元外加150美元可退还的损坏押金.
          (费用包括双人宿舍房间、餐费和活动费).

*Classes will be held on Friday and residence hall will close at noon on Saturday the 29th.

我们的暑期大学准备计划, 面向即将上大学的高中毕业生, is all about preparation—through practice and exposure—for that crucial first semester of college.

Even the most high-achieving students often face unanticipated difficulties in their first semester of college possibly putting them at risk for failure or struggle. 问题往往不是由于缺乏学术能力而产生的, but from the enormous jump in independence required in a college environment.

本课程旨在帮助学生:

  • 学会阐明需要注意的个人学习问题
  • Identify the specific supports and accommodations they’ll need in college—and how to access them
  • 体验一门典型的大学水平的入门课
  • Learn and practice self-advocacy skills they’ll need to navigate through their freshman year
  • 运用组织能力, 有用的习惯, and useful behaviors needed to succeed at college—and identify problem habits and behaviors that might surface during their first year

Students are immersed in a living/learning experience that offers a real “taste” of college life and the college-level work they will encounter in the fall. They develop a clear understanding of their personal learning strengths and needs, and discover how resources and self-advocacy can support their success in college.

Students who struggle with social anxiety and have difficulty making friends have the option of participating in social support activities, 包括社会实践研讨会和学生事务活动. Resident assistants are available as peer mentors to provide information about activities and to help students feel connected to the Landmark community.

注意:为了进入这个项目, students must provide a letter of admission to a four-year college or university. 诊断的学习障碍不需要参加这个项目.

“我很感激Landmark教职员工的善良和同情心. 他们“理解”这些孩子——他们理解他们. 夏季过渡项目是为“真正的事情”做准备.’ My objectives were met: giving my son a taste of independent living in a college-like atmosphere.”
“感谢你们所有人对我们女儿的指导.  她的经验和她在Landmark获得的工具将对她很有帮助.  我期待着看着她继续成长、学习和绽放.”
“This program helped my son get a better handle on the work required at the college level. 到目前为止,在大学还不错! 他觉得自己已经准备好接受教授们抛给他的任何问题. 谢谢你给我的美好体验!”

It was a reminder that he’s continuing to grow and achieve in spite of learning differences and personality differences.”

细节

  • 核心讲座课程——探究美国文学中的矛盾自我
    这门美国文学课程将考察几部短篇小说作品, 诗, 一出戏, and essays—from the late 19th century to the present that deal with difficult questions surrounding identity and the role it plays in the lives of Americans. 更具体地说, 学生们将关注种族问题, 性别, 国籍, 社会群体, 宗教, 经济类, globalization and other factors complicate identity formation creating external and internal conflict (or crisis) as individuals navigate multiple forces vying to shape their identity. 学生将学习并应用文学理论中的概念, 心理学, and sociology to the analysis of texts and an analysis of their own identity formation.

    阅读 & 学习技巧:
    This course uses both nontechnology and technology oriented approaches to teach students the study skills and strategies required in college—organization, 积极的阅读, note-taking and test preparation—and includes a post-test analysis of performance on the Core Lecture course unit exam to help students identify essential strategies for future college work. 课程讲师的作用相当于一种学术顾问, working closely with each student to help them develop a plan on how to transfer the skills learned in this course to other types of courses and learning environments the student may encounter in their future endeavors.

    大学写作:
    This series of workshops is designed to help students understand what college teachers expect in terms of writing, give students an opportunity to practice several approaches to short writing assignments, 促进学生对写作结构和过程的理解. Students will practice writing-process strategies in the areas of generating, 组织, 总结, 分析, 合成, 起草, 和编辑. A major focus of the workshop is for students to develop and articulate an individual sense of their strengths and difficulties as writers and learners.
