Community Matters: A Facing History and Ourselves Approach to Advisory

Adolescence is a time when two tasks take on special importance: determining our own individual identity and figuring out where and how we belong. These themes of identity, membership, belonging, and participation are the cornerstones of Facing History’s new advisory curriculum for grades 8–10.

Built on a foundation of social and emotional learning, our curriculum provides a year’s worth of activities and materials designed to help you build student-centered spaces where honest questioning, discussion, and social and academic growth can occur.

Students who participate in this curriculum will

  1. build understanding and empathy,
  2. break down stereotypes,
  3. discover their voices,
  4. develop the skills necessary for academic and community success,
  5. and build civic agency and find new ways to participate in the school and local community.
