ELL students face social, academic, and professional challenges and often lack the skills needed to succeed in college. As a result, the Skills for Success course was created to provide students with academic proficiency, employment readiness, and the skills needed to easily integrate into society. In conjunction with ELL classes, this course gives students a greater chance to succeed and be prepared for the workforce. Throughout the presentation, audience members will be asked to participate in small brainstorming sessions and large-group discussions answering various questions, such as "What skills do students need to succeed in college?" "What basic email etiquette do you wish your students knew?" "What study habits do students need in a college-level class?" and "How could job preparation be integrated into a pre-existing course?". Participants will learn how to apply the ideas acquired in this presentation to their own courses to prepare their students to effectively advance academically and professionally.
