    Strand Live Lesson

    Students will attend sessions of their choice. All participants have access to all sessions. Registered students will receive an invitation to a mandatory orientation session and follow-up session where they will cover the following topics: the ins and outs of the digital sessions, using Naviance (a new college and career planning tool available to all PCS students), rigor and the college admissions process, and the curve of forgetting. 

    During the June 8 or June 9 mandatory orientation session, students will review the strands which will result in an assignment designed to help them choose the sessions they will attend for the duration of the summer sessions.  Students must be present at the orientation to have access to the strand sessions.

    These sessions will be offered at 2 different times each week as listed below; the student will select a time that works best for them. Descriptions of the sessions are in this file:  2020 EESS Strand Session Descriptions.
