Drop us a line at GearUp.MiddleSchool@nau.edu after you use the guides with your students. We want to know where we can improve the next version.
The Discover Guide provides middle-grade students an interactive way to explore how their interests, passions, abilities, and cultural influences can influence life after high school. As students investigate these things, they will discover careers that fit their lifestyle and personality—and how to get there. The Discover Guide also helps students develop an Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP) by the time they reach the 8th grade.
Students attending middle schools that feed into our 5E high schools automatically receive a Discover Guide. All other partners, educators, students, and families can download the guide in English or Spanish. Partner middle schools can contact the Middle School Services Manager at GearUp.MiddleSchool@nau.edu to order guides or for more information.
In addition, we created a Parent Guide to accompany the Discover Guide, which includes all kinds of resources for parents to help their child through middle school, high school, and life beyond.
Parents and students can also check out the videos below, which provide a quick recap of what to expect with the Discover Guide. Teachers can find additional resources on how to implement the Discover Guide into school or at-home activities.
Created to supplement the Discover Guide, two videos are available for students and teachers to review.
