1) Warm Up: Notes and Concept Review (15 min)
  1. Flip to the "Wednesday, 5/3" page in your packet.
  2. Choose one assignment you listed in "Part 2: Assignment Review". Name that assignment and the day you took notes. If possible, fill in the Essential Question. Name the topic of the assignment.
  3. Complete the half-page of Cornell notes. Remember to use a NEW format for your notes and to note only the most important information. No notes? Find a related website or video and take notes from that!
  4. Write two multiple choice questions that could be on your final exam. Highlight the answer.
  5. Finally, write a summary.
  6. Fill in the form below.
2) Notes Review: Cornell Style Revisions (20 min)

  1. Choose 1-2 classes to focus on.
  2. Take out your notes, assignments, old tests/benchmarks, etc.
  3. Spend 15 minutes revising as many notes and assignments as possible. Revisions include:
    1. Highlighting key terms
    2. Adding HOT questions
    3. Writing summaries
    4. Comparing your notes to a neighbors, especially if you think you are missing information
3) Work Time: Set your own goals! (40 min)
  1. Review the goals listed in your calendar.
  2. Set 2-3 very specific, short-term goals for today. Examples: 
    1. Need to make revisions?
    2. Image result for today's goals
      1. Reread paper rubric and feedback from teacher (5 min)
      2. Make corrections (20 min)
      3. Reread, ask a peer to read, revise one more time (15 min)
    3. Need to study?
      1. Gather materials: find notes, open relevant Math XLs, watch review video, get calculator (10 min)
      2. Do practice problems in study guide (20 min)
      3. Check work with neighbor (10 min)
  3. Write down how you will reward yourself. This should be an "If/then" statement. Example: "If I meet each goal, then I will watch a silly youtube video at the end of class/eat chocolate when I get home"
  4. Set a timer for your first goal using your phone or the timer here.
  5. When the timer goes off, circle your level of success at meeting your first goal. (1 = oops, stared at a wall...; 4 = BOOM! Finished extra!)
  6. Repeat! Need more time? Adjust your goals accordingly.
The AVID district program is hosting its second Summer College Road Trip! This is a GREAT way to visit colleges for ONLY the cost of lunch! 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.
