College affordability: Why do you have it so HARD?!

My students tell me that their parents and grandparents don't understand why they're struggling so much. Let's understand how social policies set up a game that's impossible to win. When you internalize these messages you might end up believing that the reason you're having such a hard time is because you failed along the way. It hasn't been this hard for young people in a long time.

These are the preparation materials, which would traditionally be the more passive, lecture component of the class. These are the materials that my students work with before we get together in class.

This worksheet is what we would be doing in a 2-hour class period, where we have a chance to work together. This time is especially valuable because you can really apply the concepts you learned, while getting perspective and support from other folks. . The worksheet represents 2 hours of work in groups of 3.
