  • THIS SEEMS TO FALL INTO THE CATEGORY OF WHAT WE DO ((vs. what we ARE): A professional development program providing training throughout the world
  • Taking rigorous courses opens doors!
  • [FROM SLIDE 3]: adopted by more than 4,800 schools in 48 states and 16 countries
  • What is necessary for successful implementation?
  • Cornell Notes for class lectures and for textbook
  • Organization is:
    Managing materials and practicing methodical study habits
    Planning and prioritizing school, work, and social tasks
    Engaging in mental preparation and goal-setting
    Strategically and intentionally taking responsibility for one’s own learning

    Students who organize:
    1.    Develop and use processes, procedures and tools to study effectively.
    2.    Manage their time through prioritizing and goal-setting
    3.    Are prepared for courses, participate during instruction and interact with instructors
    4.    Self-direct, self-evaluate, self-monitor, self-advocate
  • One of the most impressive and consistent indicators of AVID's success is the rate at which it sends students to four-year colleges. Seventy-four percent of 2009 AVID graduates were accepted to a four-year college.
