East Carolina University's Project STEPP has released a Transition Curriculum.
Project STEPP at East Carolina University has recently released curriculum materials designed to help high school students with learning differences take one STEPP at a time to prepare for the college setting. Project STEPP, a program on the ECU campus for students with learning disabilities, provides comprehensive supports for participants throughout their college careers. In addition, the program supports incoming students during the year prior to matriculation to help them lay the groundwork for this major life transition. These transition-year resources became the foundation for the curriculum, which is freely available for teachers (and families) to use. The transition curriculum contains eight modules, each with fully developed lesson and activity plans, lecture slides, teacher notes, and student handouts. Each module centers on a specific college-related theme, such as the differences between high school and college, balancing academic and social life, organization and time management, communication, and technology.
