Summary

This collection of discussion guides is designed to help mentors facilitate conversations that support the success of concurrent enrollment students as they progress through the semester. Each discussion guide covers a weekly topic and provides guidance for students throughout the concurrent course. By meeting regularly with a mentor, students work toward successful completion of their concurrent course. Conversations are designed to be around 10 to 20 minutes each, covering topics such as goal setting, writing, studying, managing stress, and communicating effectively.
