The AVID Excel Elective: Advancing Learning and Language Routines Community of Practice is designed to engage AVID Excel® teachers, site administrators, and District Directors who previously attended AVID Excel professional learning. This learning experience will deepen participants’ understanding of the Foundations of Instruction as a diagnostic tool for making informed and intentional decisions about instruction. Participants will further develop their skills as learning and language coaches in the AVID Excel classroom and apply those skills to lesson design. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced 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 Excel site members who have completed the first- and second-year training for implementation.
