Ready-to-Go Resources

Lesson Plans to Develop Critical Reading Skills in All Students

AVID Weekly® and AVID® Elementary Weekly: Literacy Connections Schoolwide provide teachers with ready-to-go lessons that bring disciplinary literacy to life in every classroom so every student can be college-, career-, and life-ready.

Flexible critical reading lessons apply across all content areas and support college and career readiness, career technical education (CTE), and student agency learning goals. Texts, including infographics, images, and videos from sources such as Washington Post, Highlights for Children, Inc., Roadtrip Nation, and The Associated Press, engage students in relevant topics, helping them to make connections between prior knowledge and current learning. Readability levels help support the right level of rigor for each student, and AVID’s WICOR® methodology weaves Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading together to foster critical thinking and deeper learning.
