How Avid Has Changed My Life

Peyton Lea 1/14/15 Block 2

How I have grown as a student this semester.

This semester has been one of my greatest. My grades have been higher than ever before, I learn a lot easier, and I can talk to my teachers a lot better. Avid is the program that has taught me how to do all these things.

A couple of known Avid strategies.

Some of the Avid strategies that have brought me to the highest point in my education so far are Cornell notes, TRF's, tutorials, and SLANT. These strategies have taught me many things about school, avid, and even myself. The strategies listed help me with my public speaking skills, note taking, and understanding and evaluating work.

What these Avid stratigies have taught me.

The avid strategies are a great guide throughout the school year. They keep everything I do in check. Like Cornell notes test my note taking skills, and tutorials test my knowledge over whatever topic I have chosen to review. These are very helpful and they are overall great for organization.

How public speaking has changed my personality.

One personal strategy that has been a life changer has been public speaking. We sometimes write stories to present to the class, I personally do not like presenting at all because of everyone looking at you, but with avid we do it a lot so I am very used to it. The stories are usually about a personal experience which is sometimes difficult to talk about, so we practice over our skills so we are used to talking to people. Lastly this strategy taught me that speaking aloud is not only fun but good, and helps you open up to the real you.

Why I joined the Avid program...

I personally joined the avid program because of field trips, but the second I stepped in the classroom I realized its a lot more than that. Avid is a program to help students achieve goals and have a brighter future. Now I realized I joined this program to be a better student and get organized and ready for Highschoo , and College.

How my writing skills have imporved.

My writing skills have always been average, but I have learned new strategies in avid to make them great. I can now write a full page in about 20 minutes with little spelling error and editing needed. Avid has taught me how to put the words I think onto paper.

This semester I am going to be even more organized than before, study harder, read more, and listen a lot better. This previous semester, I have learned avid can't do all the work for you. I am willing ot go above and beyond, to be a better student than I was before.

Organization this semester..

This semester, I would like to become more organized. This previous semester, I shared supplies with others and they got stolen very easily, which made it hard to participate in some activities. This semester I am going to be an advocate for myself, and remember to receive all of my items back. This will keep all of my things organized so, I wont have to purchase new equipment.

How I will continue to grow as a student..

Each year something has changed, always something simple, until this year in avid. The avid program is what is making me grow in these academical areas. Each year/ semester is the start of a new journey in life, which means things get harder, studying becomes more important, and passing tests becomes critical, but as long as I am enrolled in the avid program, I will continue to be successful.
