What Your
Counselors &
Administrators
Need to Know

8

You must have passionate
teachers.

Recruiting is Essential the
First Year

You must
recruit
students,

especially girls.



PLTW is an Elective;


9

Who Should You Recruit?

A Potential Engineer is:

Creative
-

Likes to design things.

In the upper 80% of their class

A hands
-
on learner.

An underachiever who might get
“hooked” by an interesting, project
-
based class.

Interested in computers, science, or
technology.

Good in math and science.

10

Recruiting Techniques

Recruit a “rock star” teacher.


Take PLTW students and projects
to other classes.


Student demographics should
match the ones you want to
recruit.


Recruit at the Middle Schools.


11

Recruiting Techniques

Help the Middle Schools run


the GTT program.


Tell parents using PTA, local


papers, and “Elective Fairs”.


Start a Robotics Team.


Work on making the courses girl


friendly; teach “Design” not “Pre
-


Engineering”

Recruiting Techniques

Work on making the courses


girl friendly; teach “Design”


not “Pre
-
Engineering”

“We must change


(correct) the image of


engineers”

How Well is PLTW Working?

39

According to TrueOutcomes (July 2006)




KEY FINDINGS


Students in schools of average affluence (20
-
40% subsidized lunches) did as well as
students in more affluent schools (less than
20% subsidized lunches).


College transcripts of PLTW graduates
indicate the average GPA is slightly above
3.0 and average grades in freshman
calculus, physics, and chemistry are B or
better.
