Teacher and counselor resource to help “first generation” students planning for college

May 17, 2016 at 3:18 pm

First Generation is a powerful resource for teachers and counselors helping “first generation” students planning for college. This film features the real-life stories of “first generation” students, and would make a great “end of year” film to screen for students.

Here’s what one school counselor had to say about the film:

“The film prompted numerous conversations with students. It was beneficial for them to see peers that were going through the process and seeing the struggles. The thing that I wasn’t expecting was the impact on teachers and counselors. I think that it was eye opening for them to see what first generation students really encounter. I had one counselor share that she was surprised by the number of students under-selecting. It is something that happens at our Title One high school often. Counselors and teachers don’t always realize the role that they play in that. The film is extremely powerful!”

First Generation is now streaming free at GoCollegeNow.org!

Failure to […]
