Thank you for your input. I am fine with what I have my children involved in to be their best.
Do you have a degree? Does your spouse? If so, AVID is not designed for your children.
My own children are in AVID. It is amazing for my kids. Nothing is all good or all bad. The bashing of AVID by some people on the board is their opinion. They are free to not like it. It does not mean AVID is bad for all kids. I am very thankful for my kids' AVID teachers.
For those of you on AVID campuses, is it worth attending their summer institute in order to better understand it? Would there be information that would better explain methods of implementation in the band class?
I'm not looking for reasons why AVID is bad. I have my opinions. Our district adopted it recently and it is clearly going to stay. It is being embraced on all secondary campuses and will be fully implemented for grades 6-12 next year. Just wondering if I'd actually get anything out of attending the summer institute. Thanks!
