What do I do when I come in for help?

  • Use the time as structured work time
  • Work on assigned reading, assignments, and projects.
  • You will have a teacher there to ask . . .
    • Is my work “on the right track”?
    • Is my work of good quality? (Come with assignments complete if possible.)
    • Can you help me understand this section of the reading?
    • Can you clarify these directions for me?
    • Can you help me understand the assignment expectations?

Time to study with a teacher there to help if you need it

  • Do your “Note making” step of looking for key words to circle, highlighting main ideas, adding info, and identifying any points of confusion with a question mark.
  • Do your “Note interacting” step of creating high level question in the question column, quizzing yourself with those questions, and writing a good summary at the bottom.
  • You will have a teacher there to ask for help if you are not understanding something.
  • What are some areas of the class information you are not confident in yet? Can you bring this to tutorial?

Questions to ask of your teachers?

  • Would you be willing to look at the work I have done so far on this assignment?
  • Am I following the expectations well?
  • How can I improve the quality of this work?
  • What would you recommend I spend this time studying?
  • What are some higher level questions I could challenge myself with?
