Preparing students for academic success in college requires more than teaching grammar and vocabulary. To fully equip students for college work requires relevant and meaningful content that motivates students and promotes critical thinking, academic language skills that prepare students to communicate and thrive in academic settings, and a strong vocabulary base of words across several disciplines. Join us as we discuss how Pathways Second Edition ensures academic success through these three areas.
This is the first webinar in the four-part Pathways webinar series
