• Ready, Willing, and Able

A Developmental Approach to College Access and Success

How can an understanding of adolescent development inform strategies and practices for supporting first-generation college goers? In Ready, Willing, and Able: A Developmental Approach to College Access and Success (Harvard Education Press; April 10, 2012), Mandy Savitz-Romer and Suzanne Bouffard focus on the developmental tasks and competencies that young people need to develop in order to plan for and succeed in higher education. These include identity development, articulating aspirations and expectations, forming and maintaining strong peer and adult relationships, motivation and goal-setting and self-regulatory skills, such as planning.

Join us for a discussion with author Mandy Savitz-Romer, faculty member and director of the Prevention Science and Practice Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education
