Advisory

 

A Few Things to Keep in Mind

Advisory is ultimately about the kids. We're providing lesson plans and suggested activities, but that should never trump an activity or lesson that you feel would better serve your specific students. In fact, if you do something great that works, let us know and we'll add it to the running list of lessons we're building for next time around.

Lessons Structure and Goals

Lessons from each of the four categories should be covered as evenly as possible to ensure a well-rounded experience, but don't feel tied to the calendar if it makes more sense for your students to shuffle the days or content of the lessons. These are meant as one possible map to the destination, but not the only map you can follow. Our goal is that we are all covering roughly the same topics at roughly the same times, but there is no final exam or content requirements. Ultimately, we want you to get to know your students and get them what they need to succeed in life.

1st Block Required Lessons

Any lesson with a due date is required and should be completed before or on the assigned date.
