A Peek at an AVID Tutorial

Here is Brigid Howley, English teacher at McKee High School, who organizes the students for an Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) tutorial.
 This technique requires the teacher to guide students to fill out a request form in which they look at the notes of a subject they struggled with in the past two or three days. The student writes the essential question from the lesson, indicate the notes, vocabulary, and then generates a question that reflects his/her point of confusion.

Through the efforts of Ms. Mullen, Assistant Principal Humanities/AVID Coordinator, we have tutors from the College of Staten Island, who help the students, by facilitating the capability of the students to look at different resources to figure out how to address the point of confusion.
