  • Advisory Lessons


    The Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity has created an array of short, student-facing Push & Play lessons for educators to utilize in their advisory classes. These lessons may serve as a starting place for educators who wish to adapt them for their unique student populations.

    Please peruse our library of lessons and share with your students. Have an idea for a great lesson or want to share one of your own? E-mail our resident Push & Play content creator here.   

    All archived Advisory Lessons are available. Go to Advisory Lessons, then Expand All. Can't find it? Write us at

    As always, keep in mind that good teaching includes helping students process their thoughts and feelings about the world and creating space for them to bring their full selves to school. This document, Courageous Conversations with Students, provides tools, lesson plans, and practical advice for facilitating dialogues with students about power, privilege, oppression, and resistance.  They were adapted by the Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity.  Click here to view this resource.
