The AVID curriculum, based on rigorous standards, was developed by middle and senior high school teachers in collaboration with college professors. It is driven by the WIC-R method, which stands for writing, inquiry, collaboration, and reading. AVID curriculum is used in AVID elective classes, in content-area classes in AVID schools, and even in schools where the AVID elective is not offered.
Writing – many forms, scientific, creative, poetry, rhymes, definitions, vocabulary
Inquiry – pose problems, situations or activities needing thought, application of information and use of knowledge to solve or devise a solution to a problem
Collaboration – work as an ACTIVE participant in a group. Not just a partner, but an active and contributing member of the group.
Reading – methods for different types of reading. Texts, articles, stories, show how to read and attach meaning to different types of reading.
