What is an HBCU? Do you know anyone who graduated from college?
Opening (Hook/ Activating Strategy/Learning Intentions)
1. Explore college facts. Tell students that nearly every career requires some type of education or training after high
school. Explain that this is called “postsecondary education” because it is after (or “post”) high school (secondary
education). Postsecondary education is often called college. Ask students if they think they know a lot or a little about
college. Ask student volunteers to share a few things they know. Then distribute the College Facts Quiz and have
students complete it, working individually or in small groups.

Review reasons for college. Correct the quiz with your students. Ask if knowing the reasons to go to college makes
students more likely to think about college for themselves. Why or why not? How can they share this information with
their families?

college fact quiz
List 3 facts you think you know about college.
Opening (Hook/ Activating Strategy/Learning Intentions)
(5-10 minutes)
1. Discuss students’ college aspirations. Ask for a show of hands: how many students think they will go to college (fouryear, two-year, technical or community college) after they graduate from high school? Ask a few volunteers to explain why
they think they WILL or WILL NOT attend college. Make a list of reasons on the board. Did anyone give lack of money as
a reason? Write “money” on the board and explain that many students have trouble attending college because they
cannot pay for their tuition.

1.
Introduce the video, “Why Do I Want to Go to College,” by explaining to students that they are going to see a
short (5 minute video) by students who graduated in 2012 about why they wanted to go college. Share with your
students that the students in the video are all first generation, low-income students. Your students may be very
interested to know that this is a student-directed video that won first prize in the Double the Numbers-DC Youth
Media Competition. It is a true case of students talking to students
I.
2. Hand out the student worksheet and explain that students will be responsible for writing down the reasons
they hear in the interviews for going to college. The object is not to fill the boxes but to be attentive listeners and
to develop a survey sheet the class will use to discuss and explore more reasons for going to college.
3. At the conclusion of the video, give students time to review their notes. Next, ask students to share what they heard in
the video. Make a list on the board or chart paper of the student responses as they fill in the classroom survey tool.
