As you know, originally Advisory was at the beginning of the school day this year but just recently the Advisory block has just been moved to the end of the day. Now the big question lurks around, what do people think about the advisory now? Students and teachers have all answered this question let’s see what they have to say. 

First off Mr. Fassbender, a teacher of Lodi, thinks that Advisory is a good thing. This is what he had to say about advisory, “I still feel discussing these issues is very important, but I feel we could have done a better job of explaining to the students at the beginning of the year WHY we were having Advisory and what was our purpose for having these lessons. Also, I feel we could have had fewer advisory lessons and made sure they were really tailored to our student’s needs.” Some people might agree and some might not, but overall that’s a good reason why advisory is a positive thing. 

Students, on the other hand, have hatred towards advisory. Noah Winter, a junior in Lodi, stated that “As for new students I have witnessed them integrate just fine without our advisory block. I’ve talked to several new students and all of them said that the Advisory did not help them and believe it is an inconvenience. The lessons and videos we watch on interpreting other people’s feelings is something that elementary kids learn from their teachers, parents, or other adult figures.” 

For this argument, I can see why students can feel like that and to be honest I feel the same way about Advisory in a way. Overall, Advisory periods can be good or bad. What’s your opinion? There will be a link posted under this article.
