AVID Elementary Stages and Components

Stages

AVID Elementary (AE) spans K-8 in three stages: BeginningsFoundations, and Bridges. Each stage is designed to meet the need of students within specific ranges of development.

AVID Elementary Beginnings addresses the early years of education, when students are emerging as learners: learning to read, learning to write, and learning to learn. AE Beginnings classrooms are designed to promote L-WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) throughout the academic day.

AVID Elementary Foundations addresses the foundational years of education, when students are becoming independent learners: reading to learn, writing to learn, and learning to reflect on their own learning. AE Foundations classrooms are designed to promote WICOR throughout the academic day.

AVID Elementary Bridges addresses the transitional years of education, when students are becoming independent thinkers: thinking about thinking and learning about their own learning. AE Bridges classrooms are designed to promote WICOR throughout the academic day.

Components

During each stage, AVID Elementary incorporates:

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

Organizational Skills– both mental and physical; students are given organizational tools, as well as time management, goal-setting, and note-taking strategies.

WICOR Lessons and L-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.
