9th Grade AVID New Unit:
A large part of the AVID curriculum is college preparation.
AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. Proper time management and maturity in regards to being maintaining academic focus will be a key element to our next unit of study.
College classes are delivered in a variety of formats, including face to face, online, and hybrid courses. Our next unit of study will merge time management and academic focus with college class structures. The new unit will be a hybrid course that should take 2-4 weeks depending on how quickly students are able to develop the skills necessary for success.
This unit includes ‘modules’ assigned on a weekly basis that will be due at the end of the week. Students will be free to work individually at their own pace to complete all assignments, but will be given 45 minutes in class per day to complete it. The remaining 45 minutes will be devoted to Tutorials, another major component of AVID. As typical, students will still have two TRFs per week.
All classwork will be due at the end of the week (Thursday or Friday).
Failure to turn in assignments will result in a grade of zero.
