Essential Question:  What advice/knowledge can an upperclassmen pass on to incoming freshmen to help them acclimate into Salem High School.


Remember when you first arrived as a freshmen at Salem High School on the first day of school?   As you entered into the school for the first time , you observed the upperclassmen ( statuses) and noticed how they interacted with each other (roles).  Recall how you wondered if you would ever fit in (socialization). Your high school experience is coming to an end but don’t be sad. Look back on the past few years and reflect upon your personal experiences, which include good and bad. Why was the good just that?  Was the bad really all that bad?  Do you wish that you had known a few things (norms , folkways) on your first day of your freshmen year that would have saved you time, energy, and frustration?
