The AVID Elective: Advancing Agency for Teachers and Students Community of Practice is designed to engage middle and high school educators serving as experienced AVID Elective teachers and AVID Site Coordinators. This Community of Practice will activate teacher agency to expand AVID Schoolwide, deepen awareness of refinements in resources, and provide opportunities for increasing student leadership, financial literacy, and service learning. Participants will practice strategies for coaching tutorial members before, during, and after tutorials. Each year, this course is revised with new content and may be retaken. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools introduced in this Community of Practice can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
This Community of Practice requires all participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the internet. Participants must bring an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones with them to the session. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and preferred web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) need to be up to date.
This learning experience is for contracted secondary AVID Elective site members who have completed the first- and second-year training for implementation.
