Whiteboards for AVID!

Help me give my students these rolling whiteboards so that we can successfully have our AVID tutorials. In these tutorials, we break into small groups and students help each other using inquiry to find solutions on the boards.

My Students

This year, I will be teaching an AVID elective class. This class is only for 7th and 8th graders and they apply and are accepted into my class. These students are ones who are on the 75-85 bubble but have the motivation to elevate themselves to the next level. My students also have the goals to take advanced classes but need assistance in developing and maintaining the skills to get there. In AVID, they learn organization and study skills that will help them for these goals and also prepare them for college and career readiness.

At SSCMS, our goal is to build a community of lifelong learners, problem solvers and leaders.

This involves every teacher helping every student to reach new highs and reach goals that we set for ourselves. We can do this by meeting the students where they are at and to get them engaged in learning. This is my goal for every project I create and every assignment I give. My students won't thrive on busy work, they need hands on interactive activities!

My Project

We NEED these whiteboards to have successful AVID tutorials! During these tutorials, students break into small groups of seven and use inquiry to help students gain new understanding. Each student brings in a problem that they are struggling with and they will write it on the whiteboard. During the process, they will work on solving it on the whiteboard while other students assist by questioning. This process helps students to create a newer depth of understanding as opposed to someone just giving the students the answers. This is a pivotal item for AVID because these tutorials are done TWICE a week! Without these, we will use countless pieces of giant white paper. Please help us out!
