This strand is designed for elementary educators (grades K–2) who are new to AVID Elementary. Participants will practice and discuss strategies, activities, and lessons focused on WICOR® (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) methodologies in order to facilitate students’ access to rigorous academics across all content areas. This strand aligns with the AVID Elementary: Foundations Implementation (Grades 3–6) strand but is designed with developmentally appropriate on-ramps for use in a primary classroom. By attending this strand, participants will develop a clear understanding of WICOR and the K–2 educator’s role in an AVID Schoolwide system that provides differentiated instruction to students to help develop a culture of student success, academic achievement, and college and career awareness.
