High schools face an increasing challenge to prepare students for college, career and life.
Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), and many others across the country, have adopted Linked Learning as a way to create real-world learning experiences that interest, challenge and inspire students, as well as prepare them for a range of options after high school, including 2- and 4-year colleges, apprenticeships and military service.
Join this hour-long webinar with LAUSD, Linked Learning Alliance and Pivot Learning as they share:
- How the four principles of Linked Learning — rigorous academics, demanding career and technical education, real-world experience, and integrated student supports — work together to turn the high school experience into a relevant and engaging experience that opens doors post-graduation
- The benefits of Linked Learning Certification to students, educators and communities
