The AVID Elementary 3–6 Community of Practice is designed to engage educators new to AVID in exploring strategies and resources focused on diverse learners. This Community of Practice will support elementary teachers of grades 3–6 in blending Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR®) with digital strategies to prepare students with the skills they need to become independent learners and to be ready for college and careers. Educators will gain an understanding of their role in an AVID Schoolwide system that provides differentiated instruction to build a culture of student success. 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 new contracted AVID Elementary member sites for the upcoming school year and new AVID Elementary educators and Site Coordinators at existing sites.
