The California State GEAR UP Resources and Materials Clearinghouse is a dynamic, one-stop source for information that is customized to assist middle school educators in preparing their students and families for college. The Clearinghouse is a comprehensive reference tool that can be used to help educate the middle school community on the availability of college planning information.
Here is a quick guide to the Top Ten Links from the Clearinghouse.
The Clearinghouse is available in three distinct formats:
- The Website
- Educators' Kit and
- College Corner.
The Educator's Kit is another method to get the website features. In addition to the notebook's printed information, a CD-ROM containing the contents of the Clearinghouse is included in the kit.
The College Corner is a model for schools on how to develop their own on-site college corner. This interactive, state of the art, multimedia activity center is designed to encourage active college exploration. The activity center also includes a storage area to house any frequently used college awareness publications and materials. It can be used for individual or group activities, demonstrations and instruction.
