I am a teacher in the Learning Resource Center. In the Learning Center I work with students in small groups. Some of the areas that students in my groups work on with me include reviewing and discussing reading material, writing outlines, revising and editing papers, brainstorming ideas for an essay, studying for a test, preparing study guides, gathering research for a paper, reviewing and practicing math skills from basic algebra to beginning calculus, and organizing study time.
Throughout the school year, I will be adding worksheets and other materials that may help clarify different topics that you are learning in your classes. An interesting website that I have found very useful in providing students with extra practice in math, particularly for those who will be taking the Integrated Algebra Regents is http://www.jmap.org
. Another fascinating website that may come in very handy, particularly if you're at home and need reinforcement on a variety of topics including math, history and science is http://www.khanacademy.org
. For history, Mr. Hubbs has a terrific website: http://www.mrhubbshistory.com
which includes basic information outlining specific historical terms, events, people, concepts, theories and policies. I have found these outlines very helpful to read in conjunction with the textbook and other primary and secondary source material. If you like history and want a quick and entertaining overview on a historical topic, then you may also want to check out: http://www.youtube.com/user/crashcourse
It is important to me that when my students come to the LRC, they feel a sense of accomplishment and receive the support and guidance they need.
