Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
We worked on reviewing for a quiz that the student will be having tomorrow in class. I helped the student create a review guide for the quiz and then I tested the student on the information. By the end of the session the student was very well versed on the topics.
During this Saturday session, we prepared for the student's history test. We started completing his notes and review sheet and also doing some quizzing. He should do well on his exam.
We prepared for the student's upcoming social studies. We reviewed Italy's geography, the Roman republic, the class system, Julius Caesar, Augustus, Pax Romana, the split of the Roman Empire into the Eastern and Western parts, and the fall of the Roman empire. We also studied the birth of Christianity and the Byzantine Empire. She seemed to have a solid grasp of the subject; I told her to continue to review the vocabulary from the chapter each night until the test.
This session, we started off by working on geography note-taking. The student took notes as he read through the assigned pages, especially noting some of the examples cited in the book for various terms, as they can both come up on a test and be helpful in remembering the general phenomenon. Then, we worked through another English vocabulary packet that seems to be legitimately helping him learn vocabulary as well. We also spent some time discussing his plans for the dystopic short story he has to write for English class.
We finished three homework assignments and, with time remaining, we got ahead of schedule and worked on the student's larger review packet. Throughout the session, I quizzed the student to understand how much information he retains. He is doing well overall.
We started a new topic and assignment, this one focusing on the historical accomplishments and historical memory of Thomas Edison. I gave him several scholarly articles and some more mainstream press articles discussing Edison's legacy and the (lack of) legacy of other inventors. We discussed how opinions on historical actors can shift based upon the historical moment in which they are written. His assignment will be to read through the material and think about how Edison's legacy is remembered. We will finalize a question for him to write on Monday.
We continued to study American and World History along with theater. For theater, he and I began to read a play together so he could understand how scripts work. In American History, we continued to learn about the colonization and exploration of America. For World History, we wrapped up with Rome.
We worked on developing the student's essay for her final examination in a few weeks. She can type the essay beforehand and turn it in the day of the final exam. Her essay asks her to describe various characteristics of American society throughout early American History (1600-1877) that are still present in today's society. We brainstormed for ideas and narrowed that down to five characteristics. Then we devised her thesis statement and introductory paragraph for the essay.
As we did last time, I categorized and highlighted the questions that we needed to review. There were very few and for the most part he seems to understand the material pretty well. I think the student is prepared for this non-cumulative exam if it follows the same format as all previous tests. I look forward to seeing the results.
The student continued to work on a rough draft assignment comparing two civilizations for his history course. He finished going through the various documents that he is analyzing for the assignment and began to outline the essay. We discussed essay structure and organization at length.
The student has his final exam tomorrow so we did a cumulative review and I asked him questions from the final review guide to make sure he knew all of the information. The ones he didn't know, I made him look up in his school packet.
The war of 1812, Industrial Revolution, transportation, Monroe doctrine, Jackson presidency. The student has an exam on these topics, so we discussed them. I gave the student practice tests. We are meeting again tomorrow.
