At Risk – Students in The Middle
While others talk about what should be done to prepare students for college, (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is doing it. For more than 30 years, the AVID College Readiness System has had great success in helping thousands of students, primarily underserved, reach their potential and achieve their dreams of attending college. AVID is a catalyst for systemic cultural changes within a school: transforming beliefs and attitudes about college readiness for ALL students. This session includes research-proven strategies, methods and materials that can be used schoowide and districtwide to accelerate all students, but especially low-income, minority, and first-generation college students. Participants will learn how inquiry-based, collaborative professional learning is a necessary foundation for instructional practices that promote college readiness.
