The Freshmen Voice: Advisory and Character Strong

Jocelyn García, Guest Writer

Character strong isn’t really useful to students because of how advisory teachers present it. Writing down the meaning of a word doesn’t help and neither does the rest of the lessons they give. Not many students like to participate in the activities it has us do. We are expected to somehow open up to any teacher/adult or friend at any time if needed but the thing is, that is not the way to get students to open up, maybe if advisory time could be used as a time for teacher and students to talk about anything like a class they are struggling with or if they just need a break from doing work advisory should be that time.
