FS Materials

Freshman Seminar offers great flexibility in teaching options.






Block Schedules

All seven Freshman Seminar lessons are taught during the first semester.





Seven-period Day Schedule

Other Scheduling Options

While originally designed with material for a full, stand-alone course, Freshman Seminar can now be used more easily within another course, taught in an advisory capacity, and as a Summer bridge course.






Great flexibility with materials.




Freshman Seminar offers in-depth teaching materials. Embedded in each teacher’s manual is an examination of the various lesson components, assessments, creating rubrics, instructional strategies, and adapting the course for students with special needs.
