AIM Pathways to Proficient Reading for Secondary

Pathways to Proficient Reading for Secondary Educators
  • This workshop is for a specific group of participants chosen by MDE.

    Pathways to Proficient Reading for Secondary Educators is a course made up of asynchronous coursework and 6 one-hour synchronous virtual community of practice meetings focused on  classroom application of evidence-based instructional strategies, especially for middle and high school students.  This is designed for secondary educators committed to learning about the connection between reading research, theoretical models such as the Simple View of Reading and Scarborough's Reading Rope, and evidence-based practices that will benefit all students, including linguistically diverse populations and those with or at risk for language-based learning disabilities.  The course will end in September 2024.

    Commitment includes:

    • Completion of asynchronous pre-knowledge inventory

    • Completion of asynchronous learning sections

    • Participation in six, 60-minute synchronous coaching community of practice sessions where you will work on a Literacy Plan for your organization.

    • Completion of pre and post-knowledge inventories

    • 12-Month Access to the AIM Pathways Platform so materials can be reviewed, applied and accessed in the classroom when needed
