What is Wolverine+ and Advisory?

What is Wolverine+ and Advisory?

In the 2022 school year, ANHS is implementing a new program called “Wolverine Plus” which takes place during what has traditionally been called “tutorial.”  Using a digital platform called Enriching Students, “Wolverine Plus” offers students a more structured, intentional approach to helping them succeed academically.  While tutorial has been a part of Aliso Niguel for almost 30 years, the staff decided that students would benefit from a more targeted, organized support system.  Where tutorial lacked certain elements such as accountability, Wolverine Plus offers the following:
 
  •         Teachers can target students who need support by assigning them to their classrooms
  •         Teachers can schedule specific opportunities for test/quiz makeups
  •         Teachers can offer “enrichment” opportunities for students
  •         Students can schedule themselves to the teachers who can help them
  •         Students will learn time management skills by scheduling their support ahead of time
  •         Students will be accountable for this time as teachers can now take electronic attendance
 
The students window of time to self-schedule on Enriching Students for Wolverine Plus is from Friday at 5pm until Monday at 11:59pm.  At this time, students are able to choose which teacher they would like to see during Wolveirne+ for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday unless they are already scheduled by a teacher. 

In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, all students have been assigned to a specific teacher for what we call “Advisory.”   For the first few weeks of the Fall semester, EVERY student is assigned to an “advisory” classroom (or homeroom) where they learn about important school information such as disaster drill procedures and working with the Enriching Students platform. Teachers and administrators are currently evaluating the “advisory” and will make a decision about how much to use it going forward soon. 
 
We are excited about the new possibilities that Wolverine Plus offers our students, and can’t wait to see all that we can accomplish by making this important change to our school.
