AVID takes the stage at the 4/21/12 PTA meeting

One of the highlights from the PTA meeting today, Saturday, 4/21/12, was the presentation, organized by Ms. Mullen, Assistant Principal of English.

9 AVID students relayed their experiences. There were reflections from 9th grade students who indicated the information and organizational skills they have gained.

I noticed how the ease in public speaking expanded with the reflections from a few 10th grade representatives.

Next came the 11th grade students (our very first AVID class) who spoke of how they have been impacted by emotionally, socially and academically.
I did a little principal's happy dance as I heard each student speak. Why? Each representative from a grade level indicated how AVID enhanced their learning capabilities. They are building their capacity to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and creative, inquisitive people.

The bow on the presentation was the two "Show Me" videos created by the students, on Costas' Levels of Questions & Cornell Notes. Way Cool! Stay tuned as I will find a way to post the Show Me Videos either on this blog or the school website.
