Organized AVID Students Create Colorful Research Projects
Help me give my students dividers, highlighters, sticky notes, and note-cards to be organized, successful students; and colored pencils, glue sticks, and markers to complete college and social justice projects.
My team teaches AVID to 9th-12th graders at a high school in Portland, Oregon. Our school is among the most diverse schools in the state of Oregon, with 67% of the student body belonging to ethnic groups other than white and 63% of our students receiving free/reduced lunch. In my current classes, my students speak 11 languages other than English.
Our students are insightful, creative, passionate kids who work hard to make a difference.
Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of our classrooms we focus on their potential and growth. We may not be able to control their home lives; however, we can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, we hope to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Our students are driven and focused. They know what it takes to succeed and they desperately want to make that happen. Most of the time, the only thing standing in their way is opportunity. Once they have access, they are able to create meaningful projects, organized binders, and engaging notes.
AVID students have the individual determination to become successful students and productive members of society, but they don't always have the supplies they need to make those aspirations come to fruition.
Organized binders and completed notes are an integral part of that goal. An intact binder has dividers that separate each class and completed notes are full of highlighted information that illuminate the note taking process. Multiple times throughout the year, our students research different colleges they are interested in. They present this information to friends, family, community members, and other AVID students at our Family Nights. These projects come to life with the colored pencils, glue sticks, and markers.
Our students love to highlight their achievements and show their family and friends what they're working on. These supplies will allow them to showcase their work and be seen as the motivated, driven students they are.
