Mr. Haas's AVID 1
AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is an elective course that prepares students for entrance into a four-year college. Areas of emphasis are: analytical writing, study skills, test taking, note taking, and research, as well as preparation for college placement exams and college entrance. AVID 1 includes the Get Focused, Stay Focused curriculum required for all 9th grade students. AVID meets five hours per week. Students receive three hours of instruction per week in skills necessary for a college bound student, one hour per week in tutor-led study groups, and one hour per week in motivational activities and academic survival skills. In AVID, students participate in activities that incorporate strategies focused on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading (WICOR) to support their growth academically. Students also participate in motivational activities, such as: college and career research, college and career guest speakers, field trips to colleges and businesses, and community service experience. These activities provide students with the resources they need to learn about the many positive opportunities available to them in the community that will impact their future.
