Conducting Advisory Classes at Your School

Advisory schedules typically involve sessions where teachers meet students to advise them on issues ranging from academics to social concerns and future issues in life after school. Other adults, social workers, and staff members may also act as advisors or participate in motivating the students. These sessions can be locally arranged in schools or prescribed within the school curriculum so that they happen daily or multiple times in a week. Sites such as rincondelvago.com offer psychology material that advisors can use to understand better how to handle students.

The main aim of advisory sessions is to ensure that at least one adult within the school gets to know each student well and makes sure that his or her learning needs are met.

Here are some pointers for having a successful advisory session.

Having a Flexible and Adaptive Plan

Having a schedule for advisory meetings is helpful. Nonetheless, a strict or rigid curriculum can be disastrous and may not meet the objectives of the advisory plan. It is wise to have a structure that is flexible, reasonable and adaptive to changes.

Receiving Backup From the Administration

It is critical that mentors should receive as much help as they are expected to provide to the students. Since teachers already have too much on their plates to have time to be advisors, they need to be given time to prepare for the advisory classes. In some institutions, the management does take the responsibility to hire people whose sole purpose is to develop a program to coach the teachers.

Asking the Big Question

Most students in high school are in the adolescent stage, which is defined as the stage of identity formation and individuation. At many times, teaching fails to adequately address what students want to do when they are done with school. The big question promotes openness and a thoughtful mind among students, which helps them to have a plan for life after school.

 

Making Advisory Sessions Different From Regular School Work

A school needs to design a toolkit that looks and feels very different from the typical classwork that students receive daily. Materials used in counseling sessions, for example videos and print materials, should signal to the students that the knowledge they are about to get is different and valuable. The look, design, and sequencing of an advisory curriculum matter a lot. They will determine whether the session will be interactive, lively, and hence meet the objective of the advisory class or if it will be boring and have no meaning to the student.

Creating an Open Environment

Teachers should create an advisory culture where the students feel safe talking about and sharing personal feelings without being victimized, humiliated, and ridiculed by their peers. The relationship between the students and the advisor must be open so that the students will be willing to be open to the advisors and be engaged. To be an advisor with a positive impact, one has to make an effort to connect with students in different ways. The counselor has to be real with students and also be able to share his or her own stories so that the students can relate.
