January 8Please read this to the students before they begin the activity:
"Know yourself" PLP activity
Finding out what you want to be in the future involves knowing who you are today. A self-inventory can help you plan for post-secondary education and a career. Asking yourself questions can help you figure out who you are and where you want to go.
* After completing this activity, have students share answers (not all, but the ones they feel comfortable sharing) with the whole group, a partner or in small groups.
Senior Exhibition Activity TBA (Activity provided by Heather Dillon)
1. Please share this schedule with your students:
The schedule for the day of the festival is as follows:
8:00-8:20 Freshmen & Sophs in Auditorium
8:30-9:30 Freshmen in Coding Workshops (they should have signed up by now...)
10:00-11:00 Freshmen observing Senior Ex. (check current Senior Ex schedule to tell them where they will be going)
12:35-12:50 Advisory (attendance)
1:00 Buses depart
2. In students' PLPs, there is a page that explains what Senior Ex is. Please take a few minutes to go over this with them and maybe share examples of ones that you have seen over the previous years.
3. Show part of one or more of the Senior Exhibitions found here.
******* Please have students complete the Sr. Ex reflection in their PLP.*******
15 Random Things (PLP) Note: This is located at the BACK of the PLP packet!
• Have students turn to this activity in their packet and read through the directions with them. Some students will come up with 15 while others may come up with less. Give students about 15 minutes for this activity. (Tell them not to think too hard, just write!)
When students are finished there are several ways to use the lists:
• It would be great if the advisor would share some of his or her random things with the group to get things started.
• Ask people to share them with each other (partners, small group, whole advisory) Students are welcome to not share all or any if they prefer.
• Students can be asked to tally how many things they have in common with other students if the lists are shared.
• Students can be asked to choose their 3 most random things and talk about those.
If you run out of time to share today, you could continue on the 8 minute days.
