The AVID Elective for the Junior year prepares students for entrance into four-year colleges by emphasizing analytical writing, preparation for college entrance and placement exams, college study skills, oral language development, note taking, and research. AVID Elective students are expected to participate in, and eventually act as moderators for, Socratic Seminars. In addition, students are required to make oral presentations to the class on topics related to career searches, contemporary issues, and social concerns, all the while focusing on a culminating project.
