The AVID Excel Elective: Scholar Groups and Refining Implementation Community of Practice is a Year 2 CoP designed to engage AVID Excel® teachers, site administrators, and District Directors. This learning experience focuses on deepening the implementation of foundational AVID Excel routines and instructional practices. Participants will learn to empower students through the 10 Steps of the AVID Excel Scholar Group Process to develop reading comprehension, text analysis, and language production skills. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face, blended, 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-year training for implementation.
