The site has four sections or modules that include activities to learn more about oneself, what to expect from college, and what a SWD needs to do in order to be successful at college. The modules are designed to assist students as they learn to strengthen their self-determination and goal-setting skills. A teacher’s toolbox is included in each module to provide classroom activities for students. The first module is the “Overview”. This is where it introduces you to the site and the students. The next section, “My Place” is where a student learns about his/her strengths, needs, preferences, learning styles, and interests and how to set goals and develop an advocacy plan.
