Advisory Resources for Site-based Study
Lead your own effective school-wide professional development for advisory. Developmental Designs advisory publications provide the expertise you need.
"Schools are buying our new trio of
resources--The Advisory Book, its Professional Development Guide, and our
advisory DVD--as an effective, low cost way to build or boost their
advisory programs. If DD is new to you and your school, lean on these three resources,
carefully developed to guide educators at all stages of their DD practice. DD-trained
teachers--leverage your investment. Explore these resources with others to embed
your advisory training."
Sharon Greaves, Origins Administrator for School Services
