This strand is designed for experienced AVID Elementary educators and Site Teams. The strand will provide guidance and support for developing engaging and rigorous instruction in daily lessons through embedded AVID Elementary methodologies and WICOR strategies. Teams will engage in the process of identifying effective AVID Elementary WICOR strategies and routines and will plan lessons that embed best practices and address integrations for instruction across core content areas. Educators/teams are supported during the process, with resources and guidance as well as opportunities for collaboration, and will leave with experience and greater expertise in developing differentiated WICOR-ized lessons that facilitate students' access to rigorous content. Educators may bring science and/or history curricular resources as an alternative to using the provided resources.
