AVID begins on Monday, August 25th! I'm excited to meet each and every one of my students and look forward to guiding this class in the areas of organzation, study habits, academic support, preparation for college, advancement toward high school AP courses, and much more! This is a journey we will take together and will grow as academically minded individuals.
Materials needed for this class overlap with many basic supplies required for middle school. Here is a list to double check and gather, if needed, any supplies necessary:
*good quality 3-ring binder----3"with pocket inserts
*colored tab subject dividers to separate classes, including AVID Elective
*zipper pouch to store supplies (a 3-hole punched, heavy-duty, re-sealable plastic bag will also work)
*2 or more pens (black or blue ink)
*2 or more pencils
*Spring View planner
* composition book (which will be our learning log)
Focused note-taking, otherwise known as Cornell Notes will be the target for the next few weeks. This process and study habit will be expected to transfer to the students' core classes.
