This strand is designed for English Language Arts teachers (grades 6–12) who are new to AVID concepts and methodologies. Participants experience strategies from AVID’s The Write Path English Language Arts: Exploring Texts with Strategic Reading, which is provided for participants. The strand primarily focuses on AVID’s critical reading process which includes planning for reading, selecting the text, pre-reading, building vocabulary, interacting with the text, and extending beyond the text. Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, and Organization are included as tools for developing critical reading skills across genres, from the foundational to the advanced levels. Participants will examine strategies for supporting students’ exploration of rigorous texts in the English Language Arts classroom, with an emphasis on college readiness.
