AVID Weekly - Please help!
The overall Certification rating for the AVID high school is determined based on the individual levels of implementation of each AVID Essential and the submission of AVID’s Data Collection forms. There are 11 AVID Essentials for secondary schools that are standard across the country and in the AVID world. Each Essential has multiple Indicators describing important aspects of implementation of that Essential. The site team will begin from this most specific point: determine the level of implementation of each Indicator in an Essential; then, from the levels for the Indicators, determine the overall level of implementation for each Essential. Finally, from the determination of each Essential, determine the recommended overall Certification rating for the school. The District Director reviews the Essentials and evidence and determines the school’s level of certification.
We Need Your Help!
The AVID Site Team is currently in the process of collecting evidence for its annual certification. Examples of any or all of the following would be greatly appreciated. Please send (email or mailbox) evidence to Kristen Martanovic or Cady Baer. Evidence will be returned to teacher once a copy has been made.
- Socratic Seminars: teacher lesson plan, student samples, pictures
- Philosophical Chairs: teacher lesson plan, student samples, pictures
- Cornell Notes: teacher lesson plan, student samples
- Examples of students demonstrating skills for accessing digital information from multiple sources efficiently and evaluating that information critically and competently.
- Examples of students utilizing multiple forms of media, both analog and digital, to create permanent documents or records for review, study, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
- Examples of students’ written reflection and/or learning logs
- Examples of students utilizing higher-level questions in notes and discussions
Again, we thank you for your continued support of the AVID program!
