AVID: Meeting the Challenge of Preparing All Students for College and Career Readiness
*VIDEO NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS SESSION*
College and career readiness, Common Core Standards, and infusing rigor into all classrooms are forefront topics in American education today. Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)’s K-12 systemic approach provides the ‘how’ for these initiatives. Practical ideas from AVID’s WICOR (writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading) strategies will be shared. Participants will view the impact of AVID in a national longitudinal study of college persistence as well as a seven-year study in Washington State. Also included will be anecdotal examples from Title 1 sites in the South Eastern United States and Washington State.
