Arizona GEAR UP always wants to provide our coaches and educators with resources to support them and their students. Just this month, we have added multiple free online resources to our website. Whether you’re looking for resources for middle grades or high school, check them all out.
Discover Guide Starter Kit
The Discover Guide Starter Kit provides resources for educators who want to implement the Discover Guide into their curriculum. You can find preview videos about the Discover Guide and all the necessary information to get started. The Discover Guide is also available completely online in English and Spanish. For those schools that feed into our 5E High Schools, AZGU will send hard copy guides. Additionally, we produced a Parent Guide, which provides parents a ton of resources to help their children prepare for life in high school and beyond. For more information, contact GEAR.UP@nau.edu.
With plenty of updates and a new design, the Educator Toolkits cover an array of topics to help teachers best support their students and families. The toolkits page features five toolkits to choose from:
The toolkits offer tips and strategies to implement student programming and keep families informed along the way. Where applicable, we’ve also provided ready-to-go family communications in both English and Spanish. So, you’ll want to check the supporting document section, too.
ECAP can now be filled out online.
Thanks to the work of the Middle Grade Service Team, students can now fill out their Education and Career Action plan (ECAP) online. Arizona GEAR UP created an online ECAP as part of the launch of the Discover Guide. Successfully completing the ECAP is a primary goal of the Discover Guide as the state requires it in order to graduate high school.
