Webcast on “Taking Back High School”

A few weeks ago I conducted a webcast through CollegeWeek Live about how high school counselors can try helping high school students be students as the college admission process looms in the distance. It’s about an hour long and has a set of slides with it. At the end I have listed resources for further exploration.

This was my first extended venture into the medium, so I apologize in advance for the lighting or anything else that seems amiss. I’d be happy to hear your comments and suggestions regarding how we can protect our students from the pressures of college application.

The session is viewable with Chrome and Firefox. It doesn’t seem to work with Safari or Explorer. Click here to view Taking Back High School.



About Will Dix

I am currently writing a book about college admission. I'm interested in the intersection of the college process and American culture. I attended Amherst College in the 1970s, taught high school English and theater at The Hill School in the '80s, returned to Amherst in the '90s as an admission dean, and began the '00s as a college counselor at the University of Chicago Laboratory School. I then joined Chicago Scholars as Program Director. Currently, I blog about college admission for Forbes.com. I also help community organizations serving low income students understand the college admission process so more students can consider gaining access to higher education. I have a few private college counseling clients that I take by referral only. The views expressed in this blog are mine alone.
