SAN ELIJO MIDDLE SCHOOL'S AVID Certification Presentation ***No.1 AVID student selection must focus on students in the middle, with academic potential, who would benefit from AVID support to improve their academic record and begin college preparation. No.2 AVID program participants, both students and staff, must choose to participate in the AVID program. No.3 The school must be committed to full implementation of the AVID Program, with students enrolled in the AVID year-long elective class(es) available within the regular academic school day. (focus for next year) No. 4 AVID students must be enrolled in a rigorous course of study that will enable them to meet requirements for university enrollment. A strong, relevant writing and reading curriculum provide a basis for instruction in the AVID classroom. No.6 Inquiry is used as a basis for instruction in the AVID classroom to promote critical thinking. No.7 Collaboration is used as a basis for instruction in the AVID classroom. No.8 A sufficient number of tutors must be available in AVID elective class(es) to facilitate student access to rigorous curriculum. Tutors should be students from colleges and universities and they must be trained to implement the methodologies used in AVID. No.10 An active interdisciplinary AVID site team collaborates on issues of student access to and success in rigorous college preparatory courses.

Documentation of Socratic seminars Site plan Goals:
1) Recruitment and training of college tutors (essential#8.3) 8th Grade AVID class Cecila Wang 8th Grade PeerTutor
CST Scores over 490, GPA 4.0, enrolled in Geometry Algebra I skills that AVID students need to work on:

Know their basic math facts and operations such as percentage or discounts on items,practice and use basic area and permimeter formulas,practice adding and subtracting algebraic equations such as (3h +8K)- (5h-2k)

( Standard 4.0*)
Students simplify expressions prior to solving linear equations and inequalities into one variable, such as 3(2x – 5) + 4(x – 2) = 12.

(Standard 5.0)* Students solve multistep problems, including word problems, involving linear equations and linear inequalities in one variable and provide justification for each step. (Standard6.0*)
Students graph a linear equation and compute the x- and y-intercepts (e.g., graph
2x + 6y = 4). They are also able to sketch the region defined by linear inequality (e.g., they sketch the region defined by 2x + 6y < 4). Some of the focus skills: Activities/Steps:
Two mathematics teachers, Cotter and Kinnear, who are both AVID trained at Summer Institute and are part of my PLC and site team helped me with the following:
review past and present Explore mathematic results
schoolwide benchmarks
CST tests in order to develop a list of skills to focus upon in 7th and 8th grade AVID Current events What's a good title for the article? Critical ReadingGraphic Organizer New tutorial model on board Amanda- AVID College Tutor(2 years) Activities or Steps Taken:
Rehired former tutor
Obtained a peer 8th grade tutor when the 2nd College tutor's schedule did not coordinate with our school schedule and hers.
Trained using the new tutorial guides, videos and documents from the AVID Center and from collegues. Changed the method/setup of tutorials to "show work"/explain steps in written form 2) Create an action plan to increase the Algebra passing rate of AVID students.

Community Definition
“…A Professional Learning Community is a collaboration of teachers, administrators, parents, and students, who work together to seek out best practices, test them in the classroom, continuously improve processes, and focus on results.” Pre-Algebra Collaboration Paper Bag Speech
Rubric It is a shift in the response when students don't learn from individual teachers to group collaboration when determining the appropriate response.
Also, it is a systematic response that ensures support for every student from remediation to intervention, etc. Meetings once a month(last Wednesday of the month Typical Week-AVID No.# Narrative Poetry Reflection Cornell Notes Reading Aid Rough Draft Essay on Theme Collaboration/Technology Focus for Next Year:
