AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

AVID Weekly was developed to support the mission in all AVID schools.
  • I love it and use it often!! Thank you for providing an AWESOME tool!

  • As we are developing Common Core Lessons, we are sharing AVID Weekly articles and strategies. Fabulous stuff!

  • I love the articles. The variety but also the overlay is great for Socratic Seminars and Philosophical Chairs. I have also been able to use these to create writing samples, for example "letters to the editors." Thank you for all your hard work. It is greatly appreciated.

  • ...I like how there is a wide variety of subject matters addressed for these articles. Honestly, please continue AVID Weekly because I love how I can choose topics that connect to my literature class and students are intrinsically interested by current news or topics that interest them.

  • I tried out a lesson for the first time, and I realized how un-rigorous my course was if one of your lessons can be done in one period. I asked my class how they liked the rigor and they surprised me with comments like: we weren't bored, we weren't wasting time, it was fast, but we liked it that way. WOW.
