Why do I have a secondary education advisor? : 

Why do I have a secondary education advisor? To provide shared advising with the advising within the major (primarily during the freshman and sophomore years (and the first semester of the junior year)) To offer guidance specific to secondary education To offer a “home base” for all secondary education students within the School of Education To serve as a liaison between the School of Education and academic departments housing degrees leading to teacher licensure To provide individualized advising, counseling, and mentoring to promote academic, career, and personal exploration and development

Which advisor will I see for registration? : 

Which advisor will I see for registration? Your major advisor AND your secondary education advisor The major advisor is the expert regarding the major and the courses required for the major. The secondary education advisor is the expert regarding secondary education and the courses required for teacher licensure. You should meet/communicate with both advisors in order to stay well-informed. With some departments (e.g. History), joint advising will be available. You need to meet with me at least once for admission into Teacher Education. Details regarding registration advising sessions (and appointments) with the secondary education advisor will be sent via email beginning one month prior to registration.

Who is likely to get a rich advising experience? : 

Who is likely to get a rich advising experience? Scenario 1: Sam attends the Secondary Education Orientation. After receiving an email from the advisor regarding advising for registration, Sam schedules an appointment online. Sam comes prepared for the advising session but asks for assistance choosing classes. The advisor gives Sam some general suggestions regarding Sam’s schedule. Scenario 2: Alex attends the Secondary Education Orientation. After looking over the materials, Alex contacts the advisor to schedule an individual advising session. Alex and the advisor meet to discuss Alex’s interests, strengths and weaknesses, goals and aspirations, and barriers and limitations. Later in the semester, Alex receives an email from the advisor regarding advising for registration and schedules an appointment online. Alex comes prepared for the advising session but asks for assistance choosing classes. The advisor gives Alex specific suggestions regarding a schedule that matches Alex’s interests, strengths, and goals.

How do I prepare before a registration advising session? : 

How do I prepare before a registration advising session? Review online degree evaluation (using UNCGenie) You may consult the advising worksheets; however, remember that the online degree evaluation will be the most accurate and up-to-date. Review course availability Remember: Some courses are only offered during specific semesters and times of the day. Research instructor/course grade distributions (utilize sites such as Pick-A-Prof: www.pickaprof.com) Read the student reviews; they sometimes offer useful information regarding teaching style, exam style, etc.. Prepare a tentative schedule (with back-ups) Plan for at least 15 semester hours; you can always drop a course later if necessary (make sure to know the drop date). If you plan to register for five courses, have at least three or four alternatives. Create a list of questions to ask advisor

What information about me is useful for my advisor to know? : 

What information about me is useful for my advisor to know? Personal learning style e.g. “I learn best in an environment that uses group-work/collaboration as a learning tool.” Individual strengths and weaknesses (academic, social, etc.) e.g. “I am good at verbally explaining concepts; however, I struggle with written communication.” Patterns of behavior e.g. “Last semester I missed five 8:00 am classes due to oversleeping.” Interests e.g. “I love to read about the events of World War II and the social climate in Eastern Europe during that period.” Goals/aspirations e.g. “It has always been my dream to teach high school Biology and to get my Master’s Degree.” Barriers/limitations e.g. “I struggle to study as much as I should, because I live at home where I help take care of my siblings.” e.g. “I sometimes forget to take my medication for Attention Deficit Disorder, which results in my losing focus during lecture courses.”
