How can I collaborate with my classmates to help us all succeed on our final exams? Daily Plans: Monday, 8 May

Happy Monday AVID Students!
-Ongoing: Study, Revise, Turn in all work!
*After School De-Stress Activity TODAY: Color to Calm*
Big Idea: Structures have interrelated parts
Essential Questions: How can I collaborate with my classmates to help us all succeed on our final exams?
Objectives: I can...

...identify what I have mastered so far during 10 day review AND what I still need help with.
...organize important information in a graphic organizer.
Image result for questions I still have...ask and answer questions to help myself and my peers clarify confusions.

1) Warm Up: KWL Table (15 min)
  1. Reread your TOC round up tables. Notice: What concepts were you struggling with? Did you want to review? What have you learned since then as we have been reviewing material in all classes?
  2. Flip to Monday, 5/8's page in your packet.
  3. In the "What I Know Now..." column, list what you know about the topics you were originally stuck on.
  4. In the "What I want to know/ask/teach", list questions you need to ask someone to clarify your confusions OR could ask someone to help them.
  5. *You will fill in the rest of the table on Wednesday.*
2) Notes Review: Graphic Organizer (20 min)

  1. Choose a class to focus on.
  2. Take 15 minutes to turn notes from that class into a graphic organizer.
    1. Show main ideas you need to remember.
    2. Around the main ideas, list and define key terms, write formulas, sketch helpful diagrams, etc.
    3. Draw arrows showing how everything connects.
    4. Summarize your organizer in two sentences.
    5. Highlight key terms.
  3. Find someone else in the class you focused on. Share your organizer with your classmate. Discuss at least one thing you can add to your organizer to make it even more helpful. Add it!

Below you can see the dates and locations. You'll tour the school, eat in the dining hall (or bring a bag lunch and make this free!), see a dorm, and visit students' favorite places around campus!

    How to sign up:
    1) We'll share the application with you once we have it. More trips will be added after we leave for the summer, SO PLEASE check the Lee County Schools' homepage here for the updates. Fill in the application! This is first come, first serve!
    2) Get a permission slip from by Ms. Delmaine's door (these will be out sometime during 10 day review - so keep checking). Complete the form with your parents/guardians and return it to Ms. Delmaine!
    3) On the day of the trip, meet at Lee Senior around 6am with about $10 for lunch.
