This strand is designed for science teachers who want to apply AVID concepts and methodologies to the science content areas. Focusing on the strategies in AVID’s The Write Path I Science Teacher Guide (provided to participants), this strand emphasizes the use of Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR) as support structures for learning in the science classroom. Participants will learn how to apply WICOR methodologies to strengthen student processing of science content. The strand incorporates strategies for implementing critical reading and writing-to-learn processes, Cornell notes, interactive notebooks, effective use of discussion, and experimental design in science courses. Science 1 is organized to reinforce the strengths of vertical team articulation.
