This strand is designed for AVID administrators, coordinators, AVID Elective teachers, and Site Team members who are ready to work with their sites to conduct self-examination and address issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, and accountability through a growth mindset. The strand will provide a framework of effective methodologies that validate the cultures of all students in the classroom and on the campus. These research-based strategies will enhance the site’s curriculum and help students make relevant learning connections to increase subject-matter comprehension. After attending this strand, participants will understand how to create multi-dimensional lessons while incorporating rigor for various learning styles. Come ready to engage with colleagues in community-building activities and critical conversations around race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability, and language, as well as other relevant topics, all designed to equip participants with practical strategies for transforming educators in our classrooms, schools, and districts.
