AVID

AVID Elementary

Avid Elementary (AE) has been an important initiative at NVLA since its implementation in 2010. Since the beginning, AE has instilled a culture of student success skills and college and career readiness. The four main components of AVID Elementary are:

 

 

Student Success Skills – encompassing communication skills (e.g. listening, speaking, writing), self-advocacy skills, note-taking strategies, critical thinking, and study skills.

 

 

Organizational Skills – both mental and physical; students learn to use organizational tools, as well as learn and practice skills around time management and goal-setting.

 

 

WICOR Lessons – emphasize instruction on writing to learn, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading to learn in all content areas.

Partnerships – among students, classrooms, grade levels, schools, feeder patterns, families, and communities
