WICOR "R" - Reading to Learn

Last month we focused on the "O" in WICOR, which stands for Organization. This month we are focusing on the "R", which is Reading to Learn. Reading to Learn is different than just reading in and amongst itself. In a nutshell it is reading with intention and with a specific purpose in mind. AVID classrooms read a variety of texts while utilizing critical reading strategies and engage in metacognitive discussion of these textual pieces. Here are a few examples of what you may see with regards to critical reading strategies in our classrooms: scholars marking the text, close reading, visualization, making connections, predicting, summarizing, using graphic organizers, scholars making connections to the text, sentence frames, etc... These critical reading strategies can still be used in our distance learning model.


Yearbook orders are being accepted. Cost is $10 payable online through ParentVue. Yearbooks are scheduled to be here and handed out the first week of June.
