The AVID Elective: Implementing the Foundations of Instruction Community of Practice is designed to engage middle and high school educators serving as new AVID Elective teachers and AVID Site Coordinators. This Community of Practice will learn the foundational elements of implementation of the AVID Elective: AVID Elective Standards, the Coaching and Certification Instrument, and the AVID College and Career Readiness Framework. Participants will learn how to use AVID Elective resources, such as the Weeks at a Glance curriculum and AVID tutorial unit plans, to teach college and career readiness skills through embedded Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR®) strategies. 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 new contracted AVID Elective member sites for the upcoming school year and new AVID Elective educators/Site Coordinators at existing sites.
