Why are we doing this? To provide students with an opportunity to get extra help from teachers when needed To give students an opportunity to extend their learning of interesting skills and concepts To give busy students an opportunity to complete homework while at school.
What is your job? Students are expected to : Know prior to Tuesday at 10:53 what session they will be attending Arrive quickly to class Bring required supplies to class (Please get these in the morning as there is no time to go to lockers). Make positive use of your time – This is not more work – this is a chance to gain a better understanding, make it easier for you to complete work, and finish work that would normally be done at home. If you are all caught up, this is not a time to chill – choose an extension activity.
What is the teachers job? To give you time/support so you can complete work. Teachers will not be teaching new concepts. They may be re-teaching concepts, extending concepts, and/or giving you time to work. To help you gain a better understanding of what you are learning.
How do I know where I am going? Students must check the list in their homerooms to see if they have been invited. Only the room number will show. Students who have been invited to more than 1 place need to check the session list to see the priority subject
What does the homeroom sheet look like?
What if I wasnt invited? Students who have not been invited must check the list of choices posted around the school:
Huh? Where do I go? Vocab Help INVITE = selected students must attend all four unless released by the teacher to attend an open session BLOCKED = students can choose but must come for all four sessions. No drop-ins. OPEN = students can choose to attend one, two, three or four sessions. However, students must stay for entire session
Let the Fun begin! We are extremely excited about this opportunity, and know that it will improve your learning and experience at Vincent Massey.
