1 WRITING HIGHER LEVEL QUESTIONS (From AVID Tutorial Support Curriculum Resource Guide)

2 Flowchart

3 Tutorial Question Analysis Identifying the Point of Confusion or Place Where You are Stuck Steps  Identify an academic class in which you are struggling, and select a question from this class to present during the tutorial.  Using this question, write down or share orally with your peers what you know and are able to solve on your own.  Identify the point in the question/problem where you are no longer able to move forward toward an answer. Use specific academic vocabulary that is pertinent to the question.  Generate a specific question for your group to use during the inquiry process to help you arrive at the answer. Your group members will ask you specific questions about your point of confusion rather than addressing your original question.

4 Example 1 Original question from textbook/handout/quiz/test: Solve x2 - 3x - 4 = 0 using the quadratic formula. Your initial tutorial question: How do I solve x2 - 3x - 4 = 0? Identify what you know and can do: I know that if the discriminant is positive, the equation has two solutions; if negative, no real solution; if 0, one solution. New tutorial question (based on point of confusion): How do I find the value of the solution to determine how many solutions the equation has (2, 1, or no real)? Tutorial Question Analysis Identifying the Point of Confusion or Place Where You are Stuck

5 Example 2 Original question from textbook/handout/quiz/test: Solve using the substitution method 4x + 3y = 16 and 2x - 3y = 8. Your initial tutorial question: How do I solve 4x + 3y = 16 and 2x - 3y = 8? Identify what you know and can do: I know how to substitute a number for x. New tutorial question (based on point of confusion): How do I solve one of the equations and substitute into the second equation to find an ordered pair solution?

6 Use the examples on the previous slides to help you complete Activity 18 Tutorial Question Analysis

7 Evaluating Student Performance Watch Itzel’s story, particularly focusing on the last student in Itzel’s group (the one in the brown sweater) and complete Activity 19
