The Strategic Leadership for College and Career Readiness 2: Instruction Community of Practice engages teams of three or more members of district- and school-based leadership. Strategic Leadership 2: Instruction reinforces the connection between the AVID Schoolwide Domains of Leadership, Systems, and Culture to move schools forward in the Domain of Instruction. This training provides a framework for establishing a clear site-based definition of rigor and deepening participants’ understanding of the intentional use of Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR®) strategies for increasing rigor in the classroom. Teams will also examine data systems needed to measure next-level readiness while building the leadership needed to deepen AVID’s schoolwide impact in the Instruction Domain to create the conditions for college readiness for all. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced in this Community of Practice 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 a follow-up to Strategic Leadership for College and Career Readiness. Partners can select up to 4 days of training focusing on the AVID Schoolwide Domains (Instruction, Systems, Leadership, and Culture) for their Strategic Leadership 2 professional learning experience.
Four 3-hour professional learning modules through a virtual platform using videoconferencing provide a high-paced, interactive, dynamic learning experience while modeling engaging and rigorous instruction. There will also be opportunities to engage in One-to-One Collaborative Coaching.
