What is AVID?
7th grade Focus for the Year
8th Grade Focus for the year
The eighth grade AVID Elective course is the year of preparation for high school. Students will refine previous goals, focusing on their transition to high school as part of a college preparatory path. Their writing will focus on com-pleting all steps of the writing process and varying style, word choice, vocabu-lary, structure and voice. Students will transition from active learners to lead-ers. Other areas of focus include in-creasing the use of technology and building upon their test preparation and test-taking knowledge. Students will become more involved in the presentations of guest speakers and field trips, particularly as they relate to
preparation and prior knowledge. Students will also participate in col-lege preparatory testing and build connections with the high school they will attend.
