What is their history Get a chance to know your student What is their family lineage Culture and traditions What values/morals do they come with What life experiences have they had…good/bad/ugly-let them tell you what they want you to know
How do they see themselves now Encourage them to tell you the good stuff What skills do they possess What interests or hobbies do they have Who loves them Who do they love and why
What are their dreams? What do they want to be when they grow up Where do they want to live? Who do they want to live with? What college would they like to go to? What do they want to study? Do they want to get married?-what do they look for in a mate? Do they want children and why? What type of house do they want?
Chopping away at the dream and setting goals What is a 30 day plan? Year? Graduation? After graduation? 5 year? 20 year? How can they accomplish those goals in conjunction with their interests and goals? i.e. loves playing basketball, wants to be an NBA player, not on the high school basketball team… i.e. loves shopping, has a great eye for fashion, doesnt have a job in retail…
