Welcome Back Mentors! (maybe . . .)
Today's advisory lesson is brought to you by your upperclassmen mentors! Please open the attached document to access their plan.
(Please note that some of the mentors may implement a different plan that will help them get to know the freshman better.)
THERE IS A SENIOR CLASS MEETING DURING ADVISORY TODAY. IF YOUR MENTORS ARE SENIORS, YOU WILL NEED TO POSTPONE THE LESSON ATTACHED BELOW AND INSTEAD FACILITATE ONE OF THE LESSONS THAT FOLLOW.
If your mentors are seniors, select one of the following lesson options:
#1 - Electoral College 101: With the election fast-approaching, Mo Rocca offers an interesting look at the Electoral College using a class of third-graders. This is a short video from The New York Times website (there is a quick 15 second ad that will play before the video begins).
#2 - Mom Sends Spoiled Teen to India Slum: After spending thousands of dollars on clothing, accessories, and dinners out, a mother sends her "lucky duck" daughter to a slum in India. An interesting video from ABC News (there is a quick 15 second ad that will play before the video begins). Are today's teens too spoiled?
