Marysville, WA History tutoring
The student and I had our first session. We first talked about whether she should take her AP World History test as we had planned. But it is only 2 weeks away, and because she has a final in AP US History at the same time, we thought we should put the test off until spring. She is going to decide by looking into the test, but I told her we could mix in some studying of World History with our sessions on U.S. History over the school year and she would be ready for both. I think she's a month from being ready for the World test, and with only 2 weeks to go, I feel her decision is correct. Her final in a week will cover the US era from the pilgrims to the Civil War. And she is barely starting the Civil War, so we talked about the sectional tensions from the Missouri Compromise up through the election of Abraham Lincoln. I also talked a little bit about the war: the tension and fighting at Fort Sumter, Winfield Scott and the Anaconda plan, the Battle of First Manassas, the proximity of Richmond to Washington D.C., the success of Bobby Lee in Virginia but the success of Grant and Sherman out West, the advantages and disadvantages of each side in the conflict, and a few other things. We talked about how Abraham Lincoln won the election, about Dred Scott, John Brown, Charles Sumner being caned, secession, and the border states. Next week, we will have a better sense of what might be on the test, and we will meet and study for that.

The student caught me up on her class by starting with her notes. There has been no test since Test 3 (the one she improved on). There has been no Test 4 - the class just proceeded directly into the Civil War. She says she feels more comfortable with this information. She could name several topics the teacher stressed (such as the Battle of Gettysburg or Lincoln suspending habeas corpus), but even after looking at her notes she was confused as to why they were important, so she asked me about them. We mostly conversed about the subjects, but she is showing improvement in this regard. When we began our tutoring, she may have been able to state facts but wasn't concerned with the "why" enough to ask about it - she is now at the point of connecting facts and asking about the significance in order to better form the bonds to connect items together. She is seeing connections across themes and times. She was able not only to follow my comparisons back to the Revolutionary War and forward to WWI, WWII, and Vietnam, but she began to offer her own comparisons. In addition to speaking about the course study, we went back to the AP course structure. She has been keeping up with the spreadsheet and the sorting of key terms across the time periods by theme. This time I brought her attention to the Key Concepts listed, 3 for each time period. I explained that I had been using those to create questions for her and how she should contemplate the broad picture created by them. She should notice what the concepts indicate and what they do not (such as the three for 1848-1877 do not directly indicate the Civil War, but more the causes and the effects). We also discussed what her semester exam might look like. The teacher is likely combining Test 4 and Test 5, but it is unknown how. Hopefully by next week he will give a better indication on what the test will contain and the structure of it. NEXT SESSION: Sunday 2pm
