At the beginning of the school year, I give students a brief one-page advisory overview. I include an objective of what I want my students to achieve, as well as materials, classroom expectations, an Advisory Edmodo code, and a parent signature box on bottom.
This document can be edited - feel free to change the pictures. I usually use our school logo. If you don't use Edmodo, you can also delete that section. Make the sections work for your advisory.
I hope you find this overview helpful. I've been using it for a few years, making minor tweaks every year. Some of the teachers I work with have borrowed it and used it.
A quick note on why I use Helvetica or Arial fonts for my students:
As a special education teacher, many of my students have learning disabilities, and many have dyslexia. Some of those students are in my advisory. Based on studies on readability of fonts for people with dyslexia, researchers recommended Helvetica, Courier, Arial, Verdana, and Computer Modern for easiest readability for dyslexics. These are sans-serif fonts: sans meaning “without” and serif meaning the extending features or tails as I like to call them. Italics is also not recommended. It’s not a miracle fix, but it does make a small difference.
