Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Sunrise, FL Reading tutoring
The student required help with his project that was due on 12/15. We spent the entire session running through the script for his project, and I recorded audio of him. We would play back the audio and focus on the parts that needed improvement. By the end of our session, he had begun to record the final project, and it sounded absolutely wonderful! He has come a very long way since our first session.

In a continuing effort to bridge the gap between units during probably the most hectic school month of the year, I had a bit of a different approach to our session this week. I believe with the amount of time that was spent on the book "Speak," which sends a very strong message about several concepts relevant to students in their early high school careers, that it would be beneficial to explore other genres that also send a message. Current standards ask students to draw conclusions based on factual evidence, refining skills in citation and making connections across different types of literature. This is a common skill asked of AP history and AP English students in DBQ's (document based questions). In our session, I provided the student with excerpts from progressive era "muckraking" newspaper articles and books. The longest of which was from the Upton Sinclair book "The Jungle," which details the working conditions in the Chicago meatpacking industry in the early 20th century. The key concepts I wanted him to grasp were two-fold: Use context clues to understand a work of literature without much knowledge of the time period and make connections across genres. After detailing a brief excerpt from the book, we started to play around with the idea of what characteristics each work shared. He was able to identify that both books were trying to convince the reader of something through very powerful language. Also, he identified the idea of "shock value" having an influence on the stance of a reader. However, he was still able to maintain the difference in genres, while at the same time identifying a contemporary piece of literature (newspaper article) that was uncovering poor practices/swaying a reader to take a stance. Before we move on to his next book, I think this was an important activity to wrap up his understanding of how authors use language to influence the direction a reader is taking in regards to personal views.

During this session we reviewed Chapter 2 and 3 of Lord of the Flies. He read Chapter 2 on his own for extra practice and wrote a summary. He did tell me that he didn't understand the last part of Chapter 2 which was excellent on his part to share that. We re-read the end of the chapter and broke it down so he understood. We spent the next portion of the session reading Chapter 3 and worked on having him reflect on his reading as he went along. We are stopping every 1 or 2 pages to reflect until it becomes natural and routine for him to do. He is getting much better at context clues and figuring out difficult vocabulary words. He is also asking really good questions as he is reading which is a great sign that his critical thinking is developing more strongly. For the last part of the session, we reviewed vocab words and their meanings. We will add 5 to 6 vocab words each session to build up his word knowledge base. Overall, it was a really great session. He has to finish reading Chapter 3, write a summary, answer comprehension questions, and also use 2 of his new vocab words with his family and friends.

This evening, I worked with helping the student finish his reading packet questions for his fantasy book. We discussed the alternative ending he wrote for the story and made revisions. Then, he drew a visualization of an important section of the book and we discussed why it was important before he wrote a paragraph of explanation.

The student and I reviewed subject-verb agreement and did some writing practice. Outside of some of the more obscure cases, she seemed to have a pretty good grasp on how subject-verb agreement worked. The writing she did this session was fairly good, and she did a decent job of expressing her ideas. Her writing seems to have improved since we started our sessions--in particular, she no longer has a serious problem with run-on sentences.

The student and I went over reading from the computer and focused on memorization and vocabulary. He did well. At first he had trouble with the material, but as we went over it together. the answers started coming easier. There were some strategies that we utilized which included highlighting important vocabulary words and important terms so that we could come back to that section if we needed to answer a particular question regarding that sentence.
