Expanded Approach to College and Career Readiness - Convergence and Practice



Expanded Approach to College and Career Readiness - Convergence and Practice

StriveTogether: Theory of Action

Based on StriveTogether’s Framework for Building Cradle to Career Civic Infrastructure. The Theory of Action consists of five Gateways:Exploring, Emerging, Sustaining, Systems Change and Proof Point. Within each of the five Gateways, there are a series of quality benchmarks that are key steps in developing and sustaining a partnership.



StriveTogether: Beyond Content: Incorporating Social and Emotional Learning into the Strive Framework, Volume 1: Social and Emotional Competencies and their Relationship to Academic Achievement

Created to assist Strive communities in understanding, choosing, and measuring social-emotional competencies along the cradle to career continuum


Strive Together: Volume ll: Social and Emotional Competencies and their Relationship to Academic Achievement

Includes summary tables describing measures of each of the five main competencies: academic self-efficacy, growth mindset or mastery orientation, grit or perseverance, emotional competence, and self-regulated learning and study skills. Tables provide measures by competency, arranged by age across the cradle to career continuum and a second set of tables is arranged by age group and includes all competency measures intended for that group. 


StriveTogether: Beyond Content: Incorporating Social and Emotional Learning into the Strive Framework Volume III: A Compendium of Social and Emotional Competency Measure

Volume III of the three volumes created to assist Strive communities in understanding, choosing, and measuring social-emotional competencies along the cradle to career continuum
