Time management starts with understanding how we use our time. The sample below is from an AVID student who was asked as part of a time management unit to record how she spends her time for a week. A blank version of this form can be found in page 36 of Organizing The AVID Student Binder.
Next the student needed to reflect on how she spends her time, what her priorities are and what an ideal day would look like.
Lastly students worked to create time management tools to share with peers who are not in the AVID elective.
Writing allows students to support thinking about new content and demonstrate their understanding, therefore is a great tool to use across a range of content area classes. Checkout these examples below of writing across content areas.

There are so many WICOR resources, it is nice to have one place to go to find them (many of them, not all). This is a resource link is designed to help you in your “field” – the classroom.
Amanda Vogel has been teaching since 2007. With a background in special education and literacy instruction, I have been teaching in AVID schools for my entire career. I have seen first hand the powerful impact that AVID can have both on student in the elective class but also in supporting school wide improvements that works for all students. I am by no means an expert, but I hope that by sharing the experiences at our school we can build a community together.
