About the Lost in Transition Initiative
|Participants at the first Literature Lost in Transition Summit in Casper, October 2013.
At the suggestion of several Partnership board members, the Lost in Transition initiative began in 2006. The Transitions initiative focuses on the five Hathaway Curriculum for Success content areas, listed below. The first discipline to meet was Life Sciences in 2006. English and Mathematics events began in 2008, World Languages in 2010, and Social Sciences in 2011.
The Lost in Transition initiative connects secondary and post-secondary educators and administrators to work together to improve student success as they transition from high school to higher education.
This work has been made possible by generous funding from several sources.
