First Year College Success: Be the One! Teacher's Guide: Transition to Postsecondary Training for Deaf or Hard of Hearing Students
Franklin, Jason M.
Most colleges and universities offer Freshman Orientation for new students. When students arrive, however, they often are unprepared and unsure of how to take full advantage of these orientation sessions. No matter what the orientation program looks like at a college, knowing what to expect during the first few weeks can make the difference between a successful transition to college versus struggling with academic and social issues. This demonstration module is the second path in a four-path series and is designed to give students the foundation to be successful in college. Some highlights of "First Year College Success: "Be the One!"" include: (1) Teaching students what resources are available and where to ind them on campus; (2) Walking students through mock situations in dorms, classrooms, and administration offices; and (3) Preparing students with questions to ask before they arrive. In this paper are information regarding the software features used in this program. The program's overall objective is to ensure that students continue the success they've achieved in high school!
