Advisory – BE ON TIME

THEME(S) OF THE WEEK TEACHER  EXPECTATIONS:

  1. Advisory teachers are discussing the theme(s) of the week each Monday in Advisory

  2. On Wednesday or at some point in the week you implement an activity or lesson of at least 15 minutes that helps reinforce the theme, supports students’ understanding of the theme, and helps create community and support student voice and critical thinking about the specific theme, and more generally about Culture and Climate issues and expectations at UFSA

LESSON IDEAS FOR WEEK 21 THEME — GETTING TO SCHOOL AND CLASSES ON TIME

1: Circle about being on time to school/class and how it supports Eagle Expectations

  • How do you feel about the policy and why?

  • What are the benefits of the policy?

  • What is challenging/hard about the policy?

  • What suggestions do you have and why?

2. Article

  • choose one of the articles sent by Zac or Arnoldo (Tamara to look for one and send if possible) and use as reference for Circle conversation

  • have students read article and share main points (in whatever way you want)

3. Four Corners Activity

  • Put a poster up in each corner — STRONGLY AGREE, AGREE, DISAGREE, STRONGLY DISAGREE.

  • As you read each statement to them, have them choose a corner, talk with their classmates about why they chose this corner, and then ask one or two people to share out to whole class. Here are some sample statements; feel free to add or modify for your Advisory class…

  1. UFSA’s  tardy policy in the classroom helps students focus on learning.
  2. Allowing students to come to class whenever they want is a good idea.
  3. Students at UFSA generally uphold the UFSA Eagle expectations about being on time.
  4. There should be consequences if students are late to school or class.
