In the near future, they will be doing this perfectly. However, today was a day to get the basics: understand the processes, know how to work with a group, and what they can expect from peers and tutors.
My objective was simple:
- Students will gain an understanding of the tutorial process, be able to summarize the process and be ready to use tutorials in the AVID classroom.
At the end of the day, one my tutors, Gregg, turned to me and said, "Well, they accomplished the tasks." After the 8th grade group, my last class, I was happy with that statement. Looking back, the 8th graders accomplished the most. It didn't seem like that during class. I felt that they weren't getting it, that they were just off task.
All 75 of the AVID students could tell exactly what tutorials are. They all got there in a different way but they all got it.
