Abstract

This review investigates the essential aspects of middle school advisory programs. Advisory is an innovative approach to counseling that involves teachers as advisors to groups of 12 to 15 students. Groups meet at some time within the school day to explore a variety of affective issues involving young adolescents. Advisors are also expected to be advocates for the students in their groups. The review examines several important components of the advisory program, and explains why these issues should be carefully considered when implementing such a program. The aspects investigated are: needs of young adolescents, grouping arrangements, scheduling considerations, attitudes of those involved with advisory, and maintenance of viability within the program.
