Esperanza e imaginación: PDS Partners Working Together to Help Bilingual Middle School Students Build Hope and Imagination for Their Futures

School-University Partnerships, v11 n1 p60-63 Spr 2018
The overarching goal of the Common Core State Standards is to graduate students from P-12 schools who are college and career ready (CCR). School-university partnerships play an important role in preparing students, families, and teachers to achieve this goal. University partners can be especially helpful as children begin to imagine how they can use the skills and knowledge they gain in school to make their hopes for the future a reality. This article details a PDS project that leverages the human, financial, and situational resources of a university to help bilingual middle schoolers take steps toward their college and career aspirations. Building on the CCR work described in Krist, White, & Whitelaw (2016), we describe our project to encourage other PDS partnerships to consider the value of CCR exploration for teacher candidate, student and community development.
