GOHS Intervention Page - with calendar of interventions and info/links by department/subject.
1. Mandatory Intervention
Mandatory Intervention involves a teacher, or a strand - ie all geometry teachers, identify students who need to re-learn material, or retake assessments, and they are given passes to go to X room after their break to take advantage of the opportunity to relearn the material, receive tutoring, or retake assessment during the SSR period. They still get their break, yet if they do not show for the intervention after break, then they will receive the disciplinary consequences for defiance.
2. Voluntary Intervention
Voluntary Intervention involves a teacher, or strand - ie all world history teachers, identify students who could benefit from re-teaching or tutoring and give them the option of going to X location during SSR to get support. It is completely optional and student are NOT disciplined if they do not attend.
1. Start with talking with your TEACHER - ask questions in class about what you don't understand, let them know what you are looking for help on, go on their websites for information/resources, ask them about how you can improve in class and on preparing for your assessments, and ask about intervention options!!!
2. Take advantage of their websites/resources, all intervention options, and all tutoring options - don't rule out online tutoring options!!
3. Be willing to put in more time in outside of class in on reading, taking notes, studying!! Read the books and take notes on what you read - this is ABSOLUTELY necessary for college - get use to doing it now.
