  • The success of AVID is based on voluntary
    participation not only by students but by AVID
    trained teachers. The underlying philosophy is
    one will volunteer because he/she is interested
    or passionate about the program and its mission.
    Continued training and training for newcomers
    will take place July 12-16 at the Atlanta Summer
    Institute. If you have questions please ask or
    you may go on line to www.avidonline.org where
    you can find a lot of great information.
  • Please let me know if you are interested in being
    trained in AVID by Friday, January 22. (For
    those teachers that have at least one year and

Readiness Working With Sources
AVID Method Strategies Students will produce
W Writing How will students use writing as a tool for learning? Reflective writing activity see inquiry record their methodology for developing claims for their papers in their RLs
I Inquiry What questions will I ask? How will I facilitate students asking questions? 1. How did you come up with your claims? 2. What sources have been most useful for you? 3. Did anyone assist you in deciding what your claim and evidence would be? record their methodology for developing claims for their papers in their RLs
C Collaboration How will I facilitate student collaboration? Organize students into groups of four or five. Tell each group that after the claims presentations have been made, they should select one student who seems to understand well the claims and evidence for his/her paper. This person will be in the Inner Circle for the Citation Circles activity. Ask students to join the assigned groups with their notes for their paper, their sources, and copies Student Handout 3.4c Essential Skill 4 Academic ArgumentsSupporting Claims and Using Evidence from Sources. Tell students to use their sources to present what they think will be the principal claims for their papers and the evidence they found in their sources to support their claims.
R Reading or Rigor What will students read? What strategies will I use to facilitate that reading or rigor? Following Teacher Resource 3.5a Essential Skill 4 Citation Circles, complete a Citation Circles activity When all the students have presented to their groups, ask the group members to select one student for the Inner Circle in the Citation Circles activity.

Unit 3 Writing Assignments Writing Assignment 1
A Process Essay Prompt What were (or are) the
home, educational, political, cultural, or
religious contexts in which the leader lived (or
lives)? Which of these contexts most influenced
the leaders goals, actions, and/or
contributions? Remember to draft, revise, and
edit your textand to cite your sources. Include
a Works Cited page. Writing Assignment 2 A
Timed, In-Class Essay Prompt What have others
said about the leaders goals, actions, and/or
contributions? That is, how do others evaluate
the leaders work? Since this is a timed writing,
written in class, you will need to plan
quickly, organizing a claim and evidence around
your response. You do not need to cite your
sources formally or have a Works Cited page,
but you will need to mention the names of your
sources as you write, e.g., Sanchez noted
that Writing Assignment 3 A Headed Research
Paper Prompt After looking back over the sources
you used, your Research Log notes, the writing
assignments, and Essential Skills activities for
Unit 3, prepare a headed paper with a title and
the following sections (the headings are listed
in bold). Every section but the introduction
should include more than one paragraph.
The sections are Title (It should be
interestingnot just the name of your
leader) Abstract This will be a summary of your
whole paper which you will write after you have
finished writing the rest of the paper. Academic
introduction This section does not have a
heading, and it looks like the academic
introduction that youve studied before. Remember
the moves? (See Student Handout 3.14a Writing
an Academic Introduction.) Methodology (Heading
is in the middle of the paper) In this section,
you will be discussing what you did as you read,
took notes, and wrote your papers for this
unit. Throughout the term, you have been writing
about your methodology in your RLs, so you can
use these notes to complete a methodology
section. Although writers of most academic
methodology sections do not use I, and
use passive constructions (Four people were
interviewed for this paper), you can use I
here. Leaders Context and Actions For this
section, you will revise, edit, and add new
material to Writing Assignment 1 that you wrote
for this unit. AVID College Readiness Working

Planning Sheet 3 (2 of 2) Others
Perspectives For this section, you will revise,
edit, and add new material to Writing Assignment
2 that you wrote for this unit. Leader as a
Catalyst for Change This section, taken from your
notes and conclusion, will give evidence for why
the leader you have selected can be considered a
catalyst for change. Works Cited Though most of
this paper looks like an APA text because of its
headings, your teacher may be most
comfortable with MLA. If so, see
