The Freshmen Voice: Advisory and Character Strong

Emily Heinrichs, Guest Writer

I believe that Advisory is helpful, but Character Strong is not. In advisory, we can catch up on missing work and finish homework, making more time for sports and extracurricular activities after school. However, Character Strong is not very helpful. In my class, almost no one answers the questions, and most of the time, people seem bored. In my opinion, I do not take very much away from the lessons, and I already know most of what it is trying to teach. It may not be true for everyone, but it seems like people do not care about or learn from Character Strong, which makes it unhelpful. In the end, I think the advisory period is helpful and does not need to be replaced, but only because it is great for finishing work.
