Changing Systems To Personalize Learning: The Power of Advisories.
Osofsky, Debbie; Sinner, Gregg; Wolk, Denise; Miles, Sherri, Ed.
This workshop stresses the importance of advisories to the learning process. It stresses that relationships and the personalization of learning are fundamentals to the learning process both in and out of school. It suggests that advisory groups, even in large schools, create the conditions for improving student achievement and behavior and enrich the lives of students and teachers through personalization of the learning experience. Research demonstrates that personalization of the learning environment--enabling students to know well, and be known well by, at least one adult in their school--leads to improved student outcomes in school.
