Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to examine teachers’ perceptions of the use of AVID in the math classroom in regards to future implementation of AVID in mathematics. To fully examine these perceptions, teachers identified the perceived benefits and drawbacks of AVID as well as the AVID WICOR strategies. This was done in two phases. The first phase was a survey that gathered basic demographic information as well as information that pertained to their initial thoughts on the use of the AVID WICOR strategies. From the survey data, five participants were chosen to be interviewed in phase two of the study to explore their perceptions further. The results from this phase were analyzed and coded to help further identify commonalities amongst interviewees. The data showed that all of the AVID WICOR strategies aligned with effective math teaching practices and offered benefits to students and student achievement if implemented.
