Sophomore Year College counseling begins during the sophomore year a short list of colleges for sophomores and their parents to visit during the summer before their junior year to expose them to the range of college environments. Junior Year During the junior year During the spring and summer of the junior year, parents and students should visit college campuses to finalize their college list Senior Year In preparation for the senior year , students should return to school with a refined list consisting of colleges and universities to which they want to apply. Many college applications are available in the summer and early fall. As soon as students receive applications, they should begin completing them. The application process is time consuming, especially the essay, so students can begin writing essays and completing available applications during the summer to spare themselves additional stress in the fall when their busy with academic and extracurricular work. Parenting your child through the transition from high school to college can be enjoyable and challenging. Visiting college campuses together often provides rare opportunities to spend time alone with your teenager and talk. Ensuring that deadlines are met, essays written, and visits completed in a timely fashion can cause dissention between you and your child.

Time Management You've been told numerous times to use a planner in order to stay organized. At the start of every new year, be it a new school year or as a New Year's resolution, you tell yourself "this year will be different, this year I will be organized". You may even have purchased a spiffy new planner/organizer/calendar. And then what? Most of us aren't effective end-users of these spiffy planners. A little preparation can make all the difference in the world. Students in school especially need a long term planner to keep up with class papers, projects and homework assignments all of which can have extended time frames. Assigned early in the term, these assignments are frequently forgotten until a day or two before they are due. Unless you have a planner. For students, the best planner/organizer is one that covers an entire term, either semester or quarter. Use one that is organized by weeks. Or you could make your own. Take a blank schedule (like one shown below) and schedule in all of your regular weekly activities. Include everything that is fixed for the term (classes, labs, rehearsals, practice, etc). Then make copies (one for each week in the term).Once you have the fixed activities scheduled you can place due dates for long term projects on the calendar and work backwards to schedule work time for each project. This visual aid also helps you "see" how to fit it all in. Or see what won't fit on certain busy weeks.

79. Assessing Young Children's Progress Appropriately
These position statements offer guidance to school personnel who seek to improve Eliminate routine use of standardized tests for all young children.
Critical Issue: Assessing Young Children's Progress Appropriately
ISSUE: School improvement emphasizes enhanced achievement for all children, but determining young children's achievement demands special consideration. Assessment of the progress and attainments of young children, 3 to 8 years of age, requires understanding that they grow and change rapidly, particularly in their social and emotional development; that they can be easily distracted by assessment procedures; and that they have little or no personal interest in being assessed. Given these characteristics, how can educators determine what the youngest children know and can do, and how can they use that information to carry out the aims of early childhood programs? OVERVIEW: In recent years, teachers and administrators have recognized the problems unique to assessing young children. These problems arise from a combination of the developmental characteristics of 3- to 8-year-olds and the kind of curriculum that is appropriate in early childhood programs. Assessment processes traditionally accepted for older children are not developmentally appropriate assessment , nor are they sufficiently informative for assessing young children Abuses and misuses of tests for assessing young children have been documented (Meisels, 1987, 1989, 1993; Shepard, 1991, 1994). Excessive use of
