Today we are going to learn what Middle College programs are, why they’re so effective at improving student outcomes, and what communities need to know if they are contemplating the possibility of launching Middle Colleges of their own. And we have an all-star lineup of guests joining us to talk about the success of the Middle College School programs in Alaska!
We sit down with Dr. Claudia Lampman, the Vice Provost of Student Success and a Professor of Psychology at the University of Alaska Anchorage, the institution that hosts the Alaska Middle College efforts across the state; Luke Almon, the principal of the Anchorage Middle College School; Greg Giauque, who's the principal and a teacher at the Matanuska-Susitna (MatSu) Middle College School, which is just outside of Anchorage and the longest-running Middle College in the Alaskan effort; and Dr. Holly Martinson, an Assistant Professor at the WWAMI School of Medical Education and the Chair of the Middle College Programs within the UAA effort and system.
