Gwen Hines

To ensure a consistent level of teaching excellence, Ms. Hines and Ms. Bobadilla form a study group around best practices for AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) teachers. The group members create videos of outstanding instruction in listening, note-taking, text reading, study skills, and collaborative learning and study the examples to improve their own practice. To make their AVID teaching practice more explicit and consistent, study group participants review film segments, tape their own instruction, and study examples of student work.
