Linked Learning pathways offer challenging academic courses that prepare students for community colleges and universities, as well as apprenticeships and other postsecondary programs. These courses include mathematics, science, English, social studies, and other core courses essential for admission to, and success in, the state’s public and private universities.
In pathways, academic courses are not the typical teacher-centered lectures and memorizing of facts. Instead, students engage in inquiry-based learning contextualized in real-world applications.
The UC Curriculum Integration Institute provides examples of courses that embody this ideal.
