Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student's critical thinking skills are coming along well. I am trying to help her draw connections between historical concepts and how we can draw different conclusions from them. The facts are there to be manipulated; history is not a static thing in most cases. The writing skills will translate to her abilities. Generally speaking she knows what idea she wants to get across but struggles with finding the wording. This is something we will continue to work on."
"We discussed his IDs for this week, and he worked on his IDs for the next week. We also discussed the DBQ that we had worked on the previous session: he believes that it went well and feels confident with his efforts. Owen has done a fantastic job with the IDs; he's picking on up significance and context with very little cuing and asks very insightful questions."
"In today's lesson with the student we covered the Spanish-American War, American imperialism and the First World War. I had him do readings after which I checked his comprehension and synthesized the material. I then had him answer multiple-choice questions and also tested his recall of vocabulary, both from last week's lesson and today's lesson."
