With all of the career and college readiness planning going on, many students fail to see how even in 5th and 6th grade, their decisions impact how they will do in the future. Furthermore, students think that ONLY GPA or an "A" on the report card is what matters, and they fail to look beyond. As a former admissions advisor for numerous universities in Wisconsin, I can attest that we really do look for the whole child. As a current 8th grade ELA teacher, I've been working on this with my students over the last week. I hope you enjoy! Please leave feedback suggesting edits or changes.
