What are Tutorials? Tutorials are a time for students to collaborate and help one another with questions they are having in academic classes.
How Often Do Tutorials Occur? Tutorials are typically scheduled on: Thursdays
Taking Notes in Class #1 Students take Cornell Notes from lectures, videos, presentations, textbooks, etc. in their academic classes.
Preparing for Tutorials #2 At home, students complete side 1 of the AVID Tutorial Sheet which includes two higher level questions from their academic classes, Cornell notes, homework, class work, quizzes, or tests Question #1 Question #2
Developing Level 2 & 3 Questions #2 Questions for tutorials should be level 2 or 3 questions. Level 2 or 3 questions are not required for math. Hint: If the questions can be answered simply by looking in your book or your notes, it is probably a level 1 question. You may use the following handout for help developing level 2 & 3 questions.
Collecting Tutorial Sheets #3 As students enter the AVID classroom, the AVID teacher or an AVID Tutor collects the AVID Tutorial Sheets. The Tutorial Sheets are the “golden ticket” required to enter class.
Scoring Tutorial Sheets #3 AVID Teacher scores side 1 of the AVID Tutorial Sheets and record the scores on side 2. If the tutorial slip is turned in late, the AVID tutor will deduct 10 points from the total score. Scoring
Forming Tutorial Groups #4 AVID Tutorial Sheets are divided into groups by an AVID Tutor based on the types of questions. BiologyAlgebra IIEnglish
Choosing Student Tutors #4 One student from each tutorial group will be assigned the role of Student Tutor. Student Tutors help facilitate the tutorial process. X
Getting Into Tutorial Groups #4 The AVID Teacher or an AVID Tutor calls the names of each student who is in the biology group, for example, and assigns them a location to work. This step is repeated for each group.
Presenting the Questions #5 Students present their questions to the group one at a time by writing them on a white board. Students give a 30 second speech to explain what they know up until their point of confusion. Then group members and the AVID tutor ask questions to help the students with their questions.
How to Present a Question #5 1.Write the problem neatly on the whiteboard. 2.Face the group members. 3.Read the question out loud to the group. 4.Explain any prior knowledge and what you already understand about the question. 5.Explain what strategies you used in attempting to answer the question. 6.Indicate to your group exactly where you became confused as you worked to answer this question.
Questions to Ask During Tutorials #6 1.Can you explain your question in another way? 2.What do you already know about the question? 3.What have you already tried? 4.Where could you find a similar problem in the book? 5.Do you have Cornell notes that may help? 6.Where could you go for more information? 7.What website might help you with your question? 8.What does ___________mean? 9.How would you graphically illustrate your process? 10.What would happen if you changed _____________? 11.What if you tried ______________? 12.How would you teach this to a friend?
Recording Notes #6 Students take out a sheet of notebook paper and take 3-column notes during the tutorial process. Notes
