This strand will teach, model, and coach through the elements of Cornell notes, writing with original thought, primary source analysis, document-based questions, and a range of academic language discussion group activities. This strand is organized to reinforce the strengths of vertical team articulation and the integration and connection to AVID Launches and Boosts.
