It was created in response to having an overwhelmingly large crowd for tutorial. I had to get everyone moving and engaged but I wasn’t able to get to everyone quickly. This will change all of that.
Follow the details outlined and enjoy a less stressed tutorial environment.
After School Tutorial Sign-up Sheet
My Tutorial Log (for students)
After School Tutorial Expectations (for students)
1. Prepare – complete steps in the preparation section.
2. Plan – Have student sign up, using the “After School Tutorial Sign-up” sheet, giving you the info you need to be adequately prepared.
3. Have students sign in when they arrive to tutorial on the “Tutorial” sheet. I usually just open my Organized Teacher Notebook to the tutorial tab and allow them to sign in. (This can be found in my TPT store and a step-by-step explanation of how to make it can be found in the document once downloaded. You may also be interested in The Organized Notebook – a way to manage missed work for absent students. I explain how to make it on my blog here)
4. Give students a “My Tutorial Log” sheet on their first visit (to be stapled to their folder)
5. Students begin working on their own without teacher input. Materials are laid out by teacher prior to student arrival, or tests/ quizzes have already been put in the student’s folder. If so, students get what’s in his/ her folder. Teachers may consider even writing student names on assignments and leaving them out near sign-in sheet or again placing them in the student’s folders prior to their arrival.
6. Observe/ Note/ Record student behavior.
7. Aid and assist students as requested only after they have independently gotten started and have legitimately tried. Encourage students to refer to their notes and 3 other people before they ask you. I have a teacher friend who says “Ask 3 before me”. Student volume here should not interfere with anyone else. Train them to be conscious of this.
8. Have students complete the “My Tutorial Log” sheet included.
