Collaborative Study Groups (Tutorials)
As we challenge our AVID students to take honors and AP courses, we provide academic support every Tuesday and Thursday They will bring in a completed TRF (Tutorial Request Form) with a POC (Point of Confusion). The POC is a question they have from one of their content classes. They present their POC along with the problem to a group of 5-7 classmates and a college mentor. Their group asks guiding questions to help the student find their way to the answer. During the Tutorial, students take 3 column notes and after the Tutorial, students write a reflection.
