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. Ultimately, we want you to get to know your students and get them what they need to succeed in life.
