Cornell note taking

Cornell note taking in class have helped me so much. Not only has it gotten me good grades because I study them, they really help me get better at taking notes. I really like the way we take notes because they help me so much and I will take cornell notes for the rest of my school career.

Organization

Organization is super important, not only in AVID but in everyday life. Keeping things organized such as, pens, pencils, papers, and a lot more. Ever since I got in AVID I have gotten so much better at organizing. http://7thhouseontheleft.com/2013/02/organizing-finances/#.VpkNp00UXIU

Community Service

In AVID we went to Mission Arlington and helped load boxes of food for the homeless. It made me realized how much I have and how grateful I am. I want to continue doing community service in the future. http://www.american.edu/ocl/volunteer/Eagle-Endowment-Homepage.cfm

Tutorials

In AVID we have tutorials on Tuesday and Thursday. It really helps me with my school work and questions I might have on any homework, tests, notes, ect. It helps me interact with students because they helped me through processes that they have already overcome. http://www.american.edu/ocl/volunteer/Eagle-Endowment-Homepage.cfm

Writing skills

Its important that you have good writing skills just so that people can understand what your trying to say better. In AVID I have learned a lot about writing skills. I learned abbreviations, symbols, and a lot more. http://www.wikihow.com/Improve-Content-Writing-Skills

Public Speaking

I have learned a lot in AVID about public speaking. We have to present projects in AVID and it has helped me to be a better public speaker. We also take notes during a presentation and that has helped me listen more to the speaker. http://ingenuityuk.com/public-speaking-training/

What will i do next semester to continue to grow in these areas?

I will work hard in AVID and will be a great student. I will strive to succeed at any goals I have in the future. I am very grateful for AVID because I know that a lot of people don't have the help we get in AVID.
