The goal of this unit is to combine several of the AVID curriculum essentials and provide more experiences for students to practice the AVID strategies for success. The curriculum blends College and Career planning with the “7 Habits of Highly Effective Students” in a research project. In order to conduct the research, students use AVID strategies for success such as planning and organization skills, reading and annotating strategies, Costa’s questions, note taking and essay writing. Essentially, students should discover that the ideal way to attain success is by setting a goal, creating a plan, and working hard to accomplish that goal. This method of achievement can be replicated for both academic and personal challenges.
