Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success Print E-mail

Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success (AIM4S3) 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 supports teachers in planning and implementing the Common Core State Standards. It can be utilized with any mathematics program and is applicable in kindergarten through high school, as well as post-secondary school. This model provides the strategies to allow students to own the language of mathematics, to access the knowledge, and to be fluent in demonstrating their understanding. It also deepens teachers’ mathematical understanding and curricular knowledge.


The three-day AIM4S3 training and workshop includes a model overview of the Key Instructional Principles and Components as well as supporting data, classroom demonstrations, and collaborative planning time. Follow-up training is tailored to the needs of the school and the individual teachers.

AIL Policy Research and Teacher Training Center Print E-mail

The American Indian Language Policy Research and Teacher Training Center aims to serve as a local and national center of collaborative research that examines major policy issues affecting the survival and maintenance of American Indian language. The Center will also provide a venue for building an international dialogue about language issues that extend to other Indigenous languages of the Americas. Developing and providing Native language teacher training programs and technical assistance support for American Indian tribes engaged in language maintenance and preservation initiatives will be another key aspect of the Center's outreach and service.
