In preparation for the End of Course exam in April, the U.S. History teachers have set up weekly lunch tutoring starting the 3rd week of quarter 3 (the week of 1/21/19).  This tutoring will be during the first half of lunch from 11-11:30 AM on Monday AND Tuesday of every week.  Tutoring will be held in Mr. Jean-Jacques’ room, J109, and Mr. Dwyer’s room, J-110.  Students must choose one day per week to attend the tutoring.  Each week we will be reviewing a different EOC tested benchmark.  Tutoring will consist of test prep guidance, teaching students how to answer EOC stimulus-based questions, as well as valuable content review.  Students who received lower than a D on the midterm exam are required to attend one tutoring session per week (of their choosing).  Students weekly participation in the lunch tutoring will count towards a class participation grade for quarter 3 (10 points per week).  Attending the tutoring session once a week is extremely important for helping ensure student success in class and on the U.S. History EOC.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Dwyer at sdwyer@gstarschool.org or Mr. Jean-Jacques at ajeanjacques@gstarschool.org.
