This strand is designed for science teachers who want to apply AVID concepts and methodologies to science content areas. It emphasizes the use of Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR®) as support structures for learning in the science classroom. Participants will learn how to apply WICOR methodologies to strengthen student processing of science content. The strand incorporates strategies for implementing critical reading and writing processes, the focused note-taking process, interactive notebooks, effective use of discourse, and experimental design in science courses through the use of digital and analog tools.
This strand 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 strand. 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 web browser need to be up to date.
