AVID

AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The course is designed for students who need support in order to succeed in Advanced College Prep (Honors and ODYSSEY-Honors) courses, the most challenging courses the school district offers. In AVID, students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and questioning, receive academic assistance to help them succeed in their advanced courses, and participate in college-readiness activities.The Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) system works so well at Carver Middle School that AVID, a global nonprofit, selected Carver as a National Demonstration School, making it the first site in Spartanburg County. “Carver Middle School was selected as an AVID National Demonstration School because it has implemented the AVID System throughout the school and can serve as a model for new AVID sites,” said Terry Pruitt, Deputy Superintendent.

Writing is a learning tool, a personal/public communication tool, and a record of thinking. Students who write consider the audience and purpose, engage in various writing processes to address specific situations, support their thinking, and demonstrate understanding.
Inquiry is uncovering one’s understanding, asking critical questions, and engaging in thinking, learning, and discussion. Students who inquire analyze and synthesize materials or ideas, clarify their own thinking, probe others’ thinking, and work through ambiguity.
Collaboration is teamwork with shared responsibility, sharing of ideas, information, and opinions, and formal/informal discussion. Students who collaborate work together toward a common goal, develop positive interdependence, work in focused study groups, and support the learning of others.
Organization is managing materials, planning, prioritizing, and strategically controlling your learning responsibly. Students who organize develop and use processes, manage their time well, interact with their teachers, use self-direction and self-evaluation.
Reading is gaining meaning, understanding, and knowledge from print and other media, purpose driven, and interactive. Students who read understand text structures, use prior knowledge and make connections to text, self, and the world, make predictions and ask questions, and create visual images as they read.
