Today in class we reviewed the six AVID Strategies for Writing in the Margins. I gave students a handout to act as a reference sheet for future use which describes each of the six strategies. On the back of this worksheet there is a reading which we went over in class and used to practice each of the six strategies. This worksheet is to be glued-in to the ISN on page XIII.
I also handed out two sheets to be glued-in the ISN for future reference: 1) The ISN Scoring Rubric (page XXI), and 2) ISN Expectations (page XXII).
After this, students had at least 10 minutes to begin (or finish) their homework of Marking the Text (AVID Strategy). Students are to review the strategy of Marking the Text and then apply the strategy to the reading on the back of the worksheet. This worksheet should then be glued-in to the ISN on page XI.
