The Restructuring and Implementation of an Effective Middle School Advisory Model
D'Amore, Ellen; Clayton, Erin
Online Submission, Master's Thesis, Notre Dame College
The purpose of this action research study was to restructure and implement an effective middle school advisory model. This was conducted at a Middle School in Painesville Township, Ohio consisting of approximately 800 students. In order to meet Adequate Yearly Progress and adapt to the changes of the 21st century, a way to help the school progress was recognized by restructuring the 25 minute advisory period. An affective-academic-housekeeping program was applied with the idea of shifting from a heavily social-emotional focus during the first semester to a heavily academic focus during the second. A sample was selected, known as the experimental group, consisting of 250 sixth and seventh grade students. There was a comparison made to a control group within the same school. The study showed positive impacts on attitude, behavior, attendance and academic success.
