AAT501: AVID Tutor (2022)

Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) (year-long) is an academic elective course that prepares students for college readiness and success. AVID Tutors help facilitate the rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum provided by the AVID Center. AVID Tutors serve as collaborative learning facilitators when AVID students engage in weekly tutorial sessions. AVID Tutors assist in all aspects of the AVID elective where coursework focuses on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading to support their academic growth. AVID students take courses that meet the four-year college entrance requirements and prepare for college acceptance and persistence, including application and examination (SAT and ACT) preparation. AVID Tutors must apply to participate in this course and be accepted into the AVID College Readiness System as an AVID Tutor.

Course Note: This course satisfies the Elective (.5 of 5 credits) graduation requirement.
