AVID is an elective class for college-bound students who will be learning strategies to help them be more successful in all of their classes. This course will stress the following: focused note-taking, outlining, writing, oral communication, reading, critical thinking, test-taking strategies, cooperative learning, and self-awareness. In addition, the course includes college and career motivational activities, such as guest speakers and college field trips, as well as many opportunities for collaboration with the Sheldon High School AVID program. The AVID Curriculum focuses on Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR) from the AVID Middle School Libraries, and through both teacher and tutor-led activities. Students are expected to be self-motivated and to have a strong desire to attend a four-year college after high school graduation.
AVID is an amazing program with amazing results! We look forward to your student becoming a part of the AVID family and community.
