Know your guidance counselors and make sure they know who you are, what you do, when you do it, and how well you do it.
You should give counselors
- The counselor’s guide to German (PDF)
- List of local German programs at your top “feeder” schools where many of your students end up, be it the local community college, the small liberal arts school, or the large state institution.
- Information about AP or IB programs and college transferability
- A list of German programs at top universities should hang in your office and encourage your students to meet with a German professor whenever they do a campus visit! (Consider a group visit!)
