Much (Sustainable) Progress Today at Dartmouth College
(Hanover, NH Tuesday July 1, 2008) The SEAD students attending Dartmouth College had a productive day today. El Cerrito High School has six rising seniors in the SEAD program. The focus of today's instruction by the teachers and staff was on college preparation. Between breakfast and lunch the students attended a college application class and another class on SAT preparation. After lunch they had an essay writing class, and after dinner they applied their learning and completed a timed SAT practice essay. The students even managed to try their hands at making pottery at a local pottery crafts shop. The social theme of this year's SEAD program is environmental sustainability. Jay Davis, the SEAD Program Director, has promoted conservation as a means of being socially responsible and the students have responded by conserving resources during activities. Thus, the attributes of responsible citizenship are also being developed by the SEAD program.
