They were asked to provide advice regarding any the following:
- Study habits
- Time management
- Reactions to setbacks
- Anything else they felt was relevant
Focusing mostly on their experience in my Biology class, they were asked to give their advice regarding my quizzes/quizlets, homework, class participation, MCAS prep, or anything else that they felt is important and relevant, again, for my class in particular.
Schools is not all about academics. They were also asked to provide advice regarding participation in the school's community outside the academic realm (i.e. extracurriculars, clubs, athletics, etc.)
Since maintaining a healthy social life is also a part of a high school student's experience, my students were also asked to provide appropriate advice regarding such. As well, they may have left advice regarding the high school experience as a whole, even the experience outside of school itself. It is a confusing time for most kids and can be an overwhelming transition from junior high. Please consider the value of their advice.
Many of them put a lot of thought and effort into this. Their advice can be very powerful and should be very much appreciated... I know it is from me.
