Sheltering in place-what to do?

Talking to students daily since covid-19 stopped us from circulating in the usual ways in our communities and schools, I find that many of them are wondering what to do. Unfortunately, too many of them report that they are sleeping more than needed because they are bored. The good news is that there is much that students can do from home for their college process. 

To-Do List for Self as a High School Junior:

  • prepare for the SAT or ACT using an online resource such as Khan Academy
  • prepare for at home AP tests by using school online classes/videos or YouTube.com/advancedplacement videos
  • start writing college essays
  • create a resume of activities
  • research careers related to areas of strength and interests
  • read and then read some more-read anything-just read
  • write in a journal, we are living through a historic event, record what this is like
  • tour colleges through online resources such as www.youvisit.com
  • connect with friends and classmates online to help improve morale
  • learn a new skill (play an instrument, speak a language) using online resources
  • do something altruistic or philanthropic for your community using online resources

To-Do List for Self as a High School Sophomore

  • prepare for the SAT using online resources
  • read as much as you can
  • start a journal of your experience with the pandemic-this could be a college essay later
  • tour colleges using online resources
  • research careers
