Summer Bridge Experience Narrowing the Gap Instructors
The Summer Bridge Experience is five weeks in length and provides an opportunity for non-matriculated students to learn within the Landmark College environment. Students will choose from two-different tracks of study: skill development (non-credit) or skill development with an elective course (credit). All students will take the core development course to gain an understanding of their learning difference, personal learning style, and how-to become strong self-advocates. Physical Education courses are available to students if they choose. Instructors of the core course will serve as the student’s advisor for the program.
The academic portion of the program will provide students the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of their learning difference and personal learning style, learn to self-advocate, build learning strategies in areas most difficult to them and study skills that help to produce results, including the use of assistive technology. Faculty will provide weekly small group advising sessions as well as one-on-one meeting to assist students in their area of need.
Narrowing the Gap—Becoming A More Strategic College Student
This required, non-credit course is the key to the program, teaching students how to function better in school and improve everyday self-management.
