This strand is designed for History/Social Science and Humanities educators (grades 6–12) as well as those who are interested in applying highly engaging strategies to increase critical thinking and rigor in the classroom. Participants will focus on WICOR® (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) strategies to scaffold activities in the history/social science and humanities classroom. High engagement strategies examined in this strand support the critical reading process and include focused note-taking, primary source analysis, interacting with text, academic vocabulary building, and application strategies (including academic discussion). This strand supports the implementation of AVID Schoolwide.
