                       AVID Tutorial Make-Up Assignments
Directions: During tutorial sessions, at least 45 minutes worth of learning takes place that
you miss if you are absent. Therefore, you must make up the time by doing one of the
following assignments. If you do not make up your missed tutorial sessions, they will go
into the grade book as zeros and bring down your overall AVID grade. You will not be
automatically excused from any tutorial sessions, regardless of whether the absence is
excused or not. If you must leave a tutorial early for any reason, you must complete one of
the following assignments to make up that tutorial!
     SQ4R: Complete one from a chapter in a college-prep class you are taking this
       semester. Minimum of one full page in length. SQ4R = Survey, Question, Read,
       Recite, Review, Reflect. (See back for more info)
     College/Career Article: From a magazine, newspaper, or Internet about a college-
       related topic or something about a career you are interested in pursuing or
       something that deal with getting a job. Attach the article to a one-page reflection
       about it.
     Subject Content: Choose a topic you are currently studying in a college prep class,
       and research this topic. Create Cornell notes (including the summary!) on your
       findings. Minimum or one page.
     After School Study Center/Tutoring: Attend one day. Use a Tutorial Request form
       to complete your studying after school. Have one of the teachers sign you in and out
       in their handwriting! You must attend from beginning to end in order to receive full
       credit!
     College/Career Center Guest Speaker: Attend a college or career presentation put
       on by the College/Career Center. Take Cornell notes and have the advisor sign and
       date your notes.
     Interview a Professional: about their career or profession. Learn everything about
       what this person does and what they had to do to earn this position (college,
       additional training, etc). Find out the pros and cons to their job and what a typical
       day is like. Turn in Cornell notes about this great experience. Include the title of
       their job and a detailed reflection of your thoughts/reactions. This person cannot
       be a parent/guardian!
     Interview a College Student (who is currently enrolled): You must interview them
       by way of e-mail or in person and by asking them a minimum of 10 questions. (Have
       your questions prepared before communicating with this person!) Print the
       entire correspondence between the two of you and turn it in.

 ***All tutorial make-up assignments MUST be submitted no later than
     one week after the absence! No credit will be given to make-up
                 assignments received after that date!***
