This strand is designed for history/social science teachers (grades 6–12) who are interested in applying highly engaging strategies to increase critical thinking and rigor in the classroom. Participants will focus on Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR) strategies to scaffold activities in the history/social science classroom. High-engagement strategies examined in this strand include Cornell note-taking, primary source analysis, interacting with text, vocabulary building, and performance activities. This strand reinforces AVID Schoolwide, and each participant will receive AVID’s The Write Path History/Social Science: Interactive Teaching and Learning Teacher Guide.
