AVID's semi-completed mission
Jamie Rucker Jan. 9,2015 Period 2 7th grade
Well we did it! We completed half of the school year after battling major projects and final exams. Now we only have 4 months and a half until we move on to the next grade level. This would be a good time now to mentally rethink over what you have learned with our newly found techniques,especially for AVID students. How have they helped you? As being an AVID student, I have learned a lot. These are some of the techniques i have experienced and learned throughout the months and how they have helped me.
Cornell notes are always and must be in Hd and turned in to my AVID teacher each Friday.They can be taken in any of you classes,including your electives. With this new technique, my brain functions well with this study tool.
4. COMMUNITY SERVICE
5. PUBLIC SPEAKING
The fear of public speaking is common through the grade levels. What is most required is to be calm, just speak loud and try to maintain eyecontact with the audience. When I first stated AVID, I was frightened at the idea of a bunch of pair of eyes staring attentively at me while i speak. But, as I have learned the specific ways of public speaking, I have learned to deal with it.
When I was in the 6th grade, I wasn't the best at doing my homework. I often had the idea to do it in the morning at the gymnasium. It never turned out as planned though.I have learned now since being in AVID that homework is the main ingredient to your grade. You never succeed if you stall and don't complete it. I now spend at least everyday doing homework that I have in the classes. Sometimes I even spend Friday nights, my night of relaxation, finishing what I did not complete.
