Advisories are intentional communities of learners which are focused on ensuring every student has an adult in his or her educational life—who knows him or her well. Our experience with Advisory runs the gamut from creating programs, participating as an Advisor in a variety of settings, training staff and working with students to make their Advisory experience meaningful.
Advisory is NOT ‘just another study hall’ nor is it a worksheet class. Done well, Advisors and Advisees create a lasting and productive relationship that provides support, enrichment and …family.
Our training is based on what we have learned both in our work with the Coalition of Essential Schools and as practitioners who have been in the mix when “it” works—and when it doesn’t. Scheduling, format, activity and Advisor CFG—we can help your school either take that first step towards Advisory or re-visit and re-frame an existing one.
