REFLECTION:HOW DID I GROW AS A AVID STUDENT THIS SEMESTER~
AN AVID STUDENT I LEARENED THINGS THAT I NEVER KNEW UNTIL THIS YEAR. BEING AN AVID STUDENT MY GRADES KIND OF INCREASED. THIS FIRST SEMESTER MADE ME MORE RESPONSIBLE THAN I HAVE BEEN, AS I ENTERED. I STILL HAVE ALORT OF GROWING TO DO AS AVID STUDENT THERES STILL THINGS THAT I DONT KNOW.
WHAT IS A TRF ?
YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW WHAT A TRF IS THATS WHY IM HERE TO TELL YOU! A TRF IS Tutorial Request Form. Basically it helps you when you notice you don't quite understand something that you are learning in your core classes. on your TRF you should have them complete and ready at the door on Tuesdays, and Thursdays for the tutors or just coach Shaw her self to check them. These TRF help me week by week to get extra help I need during school and time to speak up so when I'm ready to go to my core classes I now understand the concept more,
Tutorials go for what you know!
Tutorials are kind of like group tutoring. You get help on what you need and the help you need will be based off the way you fill out your TRF which goes along with this. tutorials will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Even I four tutors aren't there! Coach Shaw will be glad to help you! During to tutorials you must stay on task and be focused because you get points for that.
Speaking up will help you during tutorials !
Now I will explain the steps of Tutorial sessions. step 1: everyone reads their P.O.C which stands for point of confusion. Step 2: The first person that will go up will be a person that has a test coming up or homework due. Step 3: the person will write there name on the board in the right hand corner, after that you write down your P.O.C, Step 4: Give a 30 second speech. Step 5 show us what you have go in your show and tell box by drawing it on the board remember talk while you are drawing/writing. Step 6: write down your steps and ask does anyone have any questions and the group will ask do you understand, you cant sit down until you understand!
You'll need orginization all your life !
Organization in avid is important, its so you can be more independent and responsible. When you are in avid you are required to have a 3 inch binder, 2 dividers for each class, hole reinforces, a pencil pouch that contains 2 red pins,2 black,2 blue, 2 pencils. Some type of coloring utensils, a planner, papers must be organized in numerical order and behind the right tab. This all relates to my core classes also because I know when I have homework because it will be behind my works and progress area. And I wont have to worry papers falling out or bending papers!
Anticipation: WHAT WILL I DO NEXT SEMSTER TO CONTINUE TO GROW IN THESE AREAS?
Next semester what I will do to improve and continue to grow is. I will stay more focused on school then on my friends and on my phone for my benefit. Like coach Shaw said while everyone else moves on you never want to have to repeat a grade, that's the hardest thing to have to do epically in middle school. Also you wont be able to try and hide it because your school IDS say your grade. Ill try and improve my grades from 1st semester, get all my work turned in on time and ask more questions.
