I like the idea of having students re-write the transferable skills and create a visual for a given area. I think maybe not this year, but maybe in a future year. For this year, maybe just present the Transferable Skills in a visually-pleasing format in kid-friendly language.
Another idea I liked was using backwards design in having a student “do” first, then decide what transferable skills they have already accomplished in that activity.
Sometimes you have to allow for a messy process in goal setting, in which the goal is not perfect, but students experience the process of setting a goal becomes a conversation.
I like the idea of using Nearpod to poll students on issues of concern, or group direction/interests in advisory time.
Interesting idea to have student-led conferences be part of advisory set-up, rather than team-based.
Each grade level advisory could have a particular focus: 5th grade: Who am I? 6th grade: Who am I in society? or something like this.
One cool idea was to develop a Community map of resources for advisory (parents, community members) and interests they could share with an advisory or PLP interest group of students.
