Advisory

 

Teachers at the Depot Campus School are called advisors, and each advisor is responsible for the educational experience of their advisees.  Advisors manage each student’s personal schedule and Learning Plan, and act as direct links to family and internship mentors.  Advisors get to know the whole student, not just his or her ability in one subject area.  Advisors do not teach formal classes, but are integrally involved in each student’s learning process. Advisors conduct advisory meetings, work individually with each student, and frequently teach workshops to students interested in a particular topic.  Advisors are responsible to teach students how to learn, gather and filter the information they need from among human, print and web-based sources. They set up and oversee student internships, facilitate Learning Plan meetings, collaboratively design individual and group projects, and provide guidance through student exhibitions. Advisors document student progress within the Learning Goals through narrative assessments. All advisors are Connecticut certified teachers.
