Session Summaries by Social Studies Tutors

Lakewood, WA Social Studies tutoring
We worked on a paper for a high school European history paper. The student is writing an essay on the revolutions of 1848 and the outcome for European conservatism. She was having trouble connecting political trends as they surfaced in the revolutions in France, Germany, and Austria, and needed help figuring out how liberalism was embedded in developments across the continent. She was interested in the class dynamics that led to these ideological outcomes. We spent the first half discussing these various ideas in a larger historical context. Since she was still having trouble coming up with a thesis statement, we made an outline and put some of her ideas on paper. She will show the outline to her teacher and develop a thesis after this discussion, then she will write a first draft tomorrow.

Student 1 and I worked on a humanities assignment comparing different perspectives on how Romans treated their conquered enemies. She also worked on her math homework regarding how to calculate sales taxes. Student 2 and I read more from her humanities book "Chains" and answered a set of comprehension questions. We also studied for a Spanish quiz she has tomorrow, which I'm very confident she is going to ace.

The student and I began today's session by organizing her notebooks/folders. There were many loose papers in her backpack that needed to be returned to their proper places. We then discussed her class trip to Savannah and how it tied in to what she has been learning in history class. The student has two upcoming history projects, the first about the Leo Franks case. She had already begun her research, so we discussed the case and how the treatment of Franks tied into the mentality of the South in the post-Civil War years (anti-Semitism, racism, anti-industrialist). We made a rough outline for the speech she needs to give on the topics. We also discussed her Appomattox & Surrender project, but couldn't complete it because the link provided by her teacher was dead. Lastly, we worked on her "Me vs. We" project which ties in to the book "Anthem". We made a list of ideas for each topic, but the student was going to seek out some further clarification from her teacher tomorrow. It was another good session!

As this was our first session, we spent the first ten minutes of the session talking about hobbies, favorite classes, and extracurricular activities so I got to know the student better, and she felt comfortable talking. We then spent some time reviewing her weekly agenda, where she writes down daily homework assignments and keeps track of studying for quizzes and tests. I encouraged her to write down when each test and quiz was, and look back at each class's syllabus to look for midterm and final dates, and any other outlined due dates. We then moved onto social studies, and focused on reviewing religion (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) for an upcoming quiz. We thoroughly reviewed similarities and differences, and reviewed vocabulary within the textbook pertaining to these sections. The last part of our session was spent reviewing logarithms, specifically proofs. One item that we worked on was the definition of log, and how to use that to convert between expressions with exponents and those with logs. This is an item that we need to review in more detail to ensure a full understanding. I asked her to review the syllabus for each class to make sure she's keeping track of any upcoming project due dates or test dates before we meet on Wednesday.
