Dual Language Education of New Mexico is a primary collaborator in the development of AIM4S³ ™, an instructional framework that deepens students’ mathematical learning.  Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success provides a framework of instructional components that shelters mathematics content to make it comprehensible and accessible to all students, with a specific focus on English learners (ELs) and academic language learners (ALLs).  AIM4S³ ™ is a powerful framework that supports teachers in planning and implementing the Common Core State Standards and aligns with the four domains of The Framework for Teaching from the Danielson Group.  It can be utilized with any mathematics program and is applicable in kindergarten through high school. This model provides strategies to allow students to own the language of mathematics, to access math knowledge, and to be fluent in demonstrating their understanding.  It also deepens teachers’ mathematical understanding and curricular knowledge.

Level 1 Training: Three plus Three Training Model (3+3)

The initial Level I AIM4S³™ Training Model includes two distinct components:
  1. A three-day initial training and workshop (Days #1-3) that includes a model overview of the Key Instructional Principles and Components, as well as data, classroom demonstrations, and collaborative planning time; and
  2. Three one-day implementation support trainings (Days #4-6) designed to respond to the particular needs of the individual teacher, school, and district implementing AIM4S³™. During these days, participants share and provide feedback on classroom artifacts, experience lessons using the framework, look closely at assessments, and plan for implementation in their own classrooms.
To find out more information about organizing an AIM4S³ Level I training for your school or district, contact aim4scubed@dlenm.org.


Level 1 Follow-up offerings

School/District Site Follow-Up:

Site based follow-up trainings are differentiated professional development designed to meet the needs of the individual teacher, school, and district implementing AIM4S³™.  This offering can include sessions to deepen and strengthen mathematical understandings, classroom demonstrations, teacher observations with supportive feedback, and work sessions to plan CCSSM units or develop Compendia.  DLeNM’s observational protocol, VISITAS, is often utilized to support teams in participating in peer observations and identifying instructional next steps to support deeper student learning.

AIM4S³™ Annual Summer Institute:

The Summer Institute is an exciting follow-up for teachers already trained in AIM4S³™. The Summer Institute will address a wide range of topics based on feedback from teachers. Participants will have the opportunity to select sessions based on their professional interests.  Join us to:

  1. Build a year-long plan or develop an AIM4S³™ unit based on the CCSSM and the specific materials you are using in your classroom or school,
  2. Expand your understanding of the framework and how the Component Areas and Key Instructional Principles are interconnected,
  3. Deepen your knowledge of the CCSSM domains and how they develop from kindergarten through 8th grade, and
  4. Collaborate with other math instructors on how to best meet the needs of English learners (ELs) and academic language learners (ALLs).

Level 2 and 3 Capacity Building: Developing School/ District Trainers

DLeNM supports schools and districts in building capacity and sustainability of the AIM4S³™ Framework.  This exciting and intense process typically takes from 12 to 18 months as we support and certify trainers at the school and district levels.  To find out more information about the trainer certification process, contact Lisa Meyer at lisa@dlenm.org

Description of the Level I training:
The three-day initial training and workshop (Days #1-3) includes a model overview of the Key Instructional Principles and Components, as well as data, classroom demonstrations, and collaborative planning time. This registration also includes implementation support.  During these days, participants share and provide feedback on classroom artifacts, experience lessons using the framework, look closely at assessments, and plan for implementation in their own classrooms.
 
Goals/Objectives of the Level I training:
  1. Increase pedagogical thinking around instruction to make mathematics accessible to all learners, especially language learners, leading to increased student achievement,
  2. Observe the model in action during a classroom demonstration, and 
  3. Collaborate and develop materials to support implementation of the AIM4S³ model in your classroom.
Who should attend? 
Classroom teachers and instructional coaches who are interested in learning high leverage strategies to shelter and scaffold mathematics content and language.  This training targets kindergarten through 8th grade teachers.
