12 Tutorial Process: Step 1 In their academic classes, students take Cornell notes on the material presented in lectures, textbook readings, videos, handouts, etc. After class, students review their notes, create questions in the column on the left, and write a summary at the bottom of the notes.
13 Inquiry And Costas Levels of Thinking and Questioning
14 Handout pg 7 Costas 3 Levels
Handout pg 8
16 Writing Questions: Wonderings Study the article about Buffalo soldiers and let your mind wonder about the article. Jot down your wonderings/questions using handout. Share your questions with a table partner. With your table partner, identify your questions as Level 1, 2, or 3 (Costas Levels of Questions). Work as a table to complete Moving On Up handout. Handout pgs 9-10
17 Levels of Thinking and Questioning Review Handouts on -- Vocabulary: Costas Levels Content Specific Questions Use these content specific questions to help students in the tutorial groups Laminate them and keep them as visible references Handout pgs 11-15
The CORNELL WAY
19 Why does structured note-taking matter? Elapsed Days Percent Retention of Material
20 Four Elements of Cornell Notes Note Taking Creating the format of your notes Organizing your notes Note Making Reviewing and revising the content of the notes Noting key chunks of material in the notes Exchanging ideas and collaborating about the material Handout pgs 16-18
21 Four Elements of Cornell Notes, contd Note Interacting Link all the learning together by writing a summary that addresses the essential question and answers the questions from the left margin Learn from your notes by studying them! Note Reflecting Written feedback from a peer, tutor or teacher Address the feedback by focusing on one area of challeng Your reflection over an entire unit and how your notes helped you learn and retain information
22 How tutors should support Cornell Notes Note Taking Make sure all notes taken and used in tutorials are in Cornell Note format Help students learn note-taking conventions
23 How tutors should support Cornell Notes Note Making Help students learn to chunk their notes accurately and effectively Support the writing and refining of higher level questions in the left column If possible, attend a content area class with the students, take notes, and then compare your notes to theirs
24 How tutors should support Cornell Notes Note Interacting Have students read the summary from their notes out loud to the group; group provides feedback Constantly ask students Have you been studying from your Cornell Notes?
25 How tutors should support Cornell Notes Note Reflecting Check for the quality and quantity of Cornell notes during binder checks, especially for students struggling in specific classes Ask students what aspect of Cornell Notes theyre working on this week from their Cornell Note Focused Goal Activity
26 The Tutorial Process What is the main purpose of AVID tutorials? To promote student achievement in academic classes through: Assistance with content material Learning how to work collaboratively Using inquiry to increase understanding
27 Handout pgs Students need to come with their resources! The process starts with a question! The process continues with questions! All group members have responsibilities! Reflections are important!
28 The Tutorial Process View the tutorial videos: Before, during, and after tutorials Use the Summarizing: Pyramid to summarize/synthesize your learning about the tutorial process. Handout pg 24
29 The Tutorial Process Where was inquiry used in the tutorial video segments? Where was collaboration used in the tutorial video segments? (Collaboration is group members working together while taking responsibility for each persons learning.)
30 Tutor and Student Expectations Jigsaw read the Expectations of Tutors, Expectations of Students and the Tutor Contract by dividing each reading into segments so that each person on the table reads one segment. After the readings are done, each person shares the main points of his/her segment with the whole table group. Each table group determines 1-2 big ideas from the reading and 1-2 questions to share with the entire group. Handout pgs 25-27
31 Tutor and Student Expectations Find someone you dont know (or dont know well) and do a minute share with them on what you have learned about tutorials and your role in the tutorials. Partner A talks for one minute. Partner B just listensno talking. Partner B talks for one minute. Partner A just listensno talking. Both partners engage in a conversation for two minutes.
