In this session, we worked primarily on reading comprehension. We discussed reading a text and examining it through text structures such as: cause and effect, sequence of events, compare and contrast, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the author's purpose. The student relies more heavily on graphic and contextual cues when reading, which can obscure a word's syntax, causing gaps in comprehension. I suggested that she slow down and take in each sentence as she reads to help digest what she is reading. In addition, I suggested that she use text structures to briefly think about the passage before answering questions. When we worked on math, the student demonstrated fluency calculating percents, using the method I suggested in our prior session. We continued to solve practice math problems and worked on utilizing diagrams to help understand complex word problems.

The student worked on the argument essay and the issue essay. We specifically worked on examining the question prompts and outlining in advance. For the issue essay, we looked at multiple example essays to see how the authors' used outside information and detailed examples. We also practiced flipping the issue prompt to see what the opposite argument would be. For the argument essays, we looked at how authors used the question prompts to structure their essays.

Today, we reviewed some logic games, which were giving the student a particularly hard time. I encouraged her to write constantly during the games in order to visualize what was going on and improve her ability to conceptualize the rules. I'm confident that if she starts writing more frequently, her performance will improve.

We covered introductory topics to IB Biology SL, such as the universal principles of life, cell structure and organization, biological molecules and functions, and cellular reproduction. Overall, the student possesses a strong understanding of introductory biology from previous coursework, and asked great questions. Once he starts receiving assignments and a course outline, I will be happy to assist him with specific areas in more detail. Overall, I anticipate that the student will do very well in this course, and do not foresee any significant challenges at this time.
