Review Sessions

Hi all,
Here is the deal. I use to have study sessions last year and this year I am undecided. The study sessions were from 7:30-7:55 and I would go over items that were going to be on the test and focus the information so that students could have a much better idea about what was on the test. I use to like to give students an advantage if they came in on their free time in the morning because it showed me their grade meant a lot to them. Now most of you are in early bird and are getting out of class early so it is different in my eyes and hence a main reason for me not to do the reviews. The other major issue is that not all the early bird teachers will let the students out of their class to come to my class review and so some of you will feel left out. Please comment on these issues if you want to help me decide. Please feel free to see last years students posts on this issue when I had a similar situation.
Thanks,
Currie

Is there any way you could do the study sessions some other time?

we should have the study sessions but if eb students cant her out of class it's unfair to them. so if the wb teachers won't let them, we should do them in cougar time or something where it's fair to everyone and no one gets an unfair advantage on the test. :)

cougar time is a great idea but maybe we can see if another bio teacher has time after school to help too.

Currie,
i think that is would b very hard to get out of class to come to a session. its a great idea to help with the tests, and i would for sure go, i just don't know how it would be possible to get out, and during courgar time thats only like 10 minutes. But if we could get u that works for me! some should try for either an after school session, or if u can't mayb take a day other than the bio buck game do an acutal review so that everyone could get an equal amount of time. or give a time offer during class so those who do care about their grade will attend, but its just during class or lunch ish...
idk currie its up to u...

I think we should have study sessions, but i dont know how I would get out of my early bird class, if I can get out though, I for sure will. Having sessions duruing cougar time could work, but thats not very much time to review. I also agree having a day to review other then the bio buck games sounds good too. The day before the test could be just like what you do for study session before school.

ohhh maannn!! said...

getting out of early bird might be hard and some people might not want to becase they would be learning stuff for bi but missing important stuff in other classes. if i could get out i would gladly. but how much early bird time would people be excuse from? i think that cougar time would be ok..but not the best thing because it is pretty short and some teachers just use it as extra teaching time (which isn't fair). Since you have weight training after school that is obviously not an option. lunch wouldnt work either because everybody has a different lunch. the only way that everybody who wants to come can is by maybe instead of you giving us those work days, skip one. and the day before the test, use it as a review. but dont take away the bio buck one.

:( please! said...

we need those study sessions! plzzz dont take them away. they would reaaallllyyy help!!

im a ninja! =D said...

because alot of people are confused about whether the EB teachers would let them out, could you maybe tell us in class which teachers are/aren't willing to let kids out for review sessions?? PLEASE. =))

yo currie!!

don't go take those things away!!
i have like 98% in my eb class so i doubt my teach would care if i split for 30 min. and anybody else who cares enough about school to take eb probably can say the same thing.

i <3 bio.

study sessions all da way!!

I think we should do review sessions, because it would help a lot! If you are at school before early bird, I would be willing to come in then. I would also come in after school, or during cougar time. I can go to them almost whenever you have them and I would really like it if you had review sessions. :]

WOAHH! said...

i sayyyy you should have the students set up their own study sesion with other students, maybe even outside of school.

Ok i think that like 2 days before the test you should hand out a paper of everything thats on the test..like a review paper but have us fill it out just so we know what the test will be on. Or if your still thinking about the study sessions, you could do it after school or before school because not everyone has early bird or you could during cougar time for the 15 minutes.

so are u gonna have them or not??

hint: yes you should!!!

Notice that everybody on here is saying to do them... just some can't get out of early bird. What I'm seeing is a unanimous "yes," just find a good time. It's not a matter of if... it's a matter of when.

for the study thingers i would say maybe have one thats not at school maybe during the weekend because with sports, other homework, friends, and family stuff the week gives kids like half an hour to work with... but idk... could be hard to do that..
