The AVID elective class has been trying new activities to build more Relational Capacity for college preparedness. Students are learning to talk to each other and collaborate on the work in class to complete the work. A critical reading process has been started for reading comprehension levels. The 7th graders have begun to practice communication skills to get to know their teachers and introducing themselves to each teacher on their schedule. The executive function and pre-frontal cortex growth is really beginging to help the 7th graders. The class will also be able to utilizing a new Chromebook cart in class too.
We have set a list of high expectations and have told all the students that they will try their best in class and on campus at all times. This new mindfulness and positive scholarly talk will help all the students on the campus. We expect that all the students will persevere and improve to be the best students they can be for college and career readiness. Best wishes and good luck, Matador families!
