Here you'll find a variety of resources that focus on classroom instruction . These materials range from support for big-picture planning— such as unit power planning, curriculum mapping, or planning for integration of a cultural component—to more specific lesson planning resources for instruction and assessment, such as sheltering instruction with G.L.A.D., planning with language objectives, Spanish language assessments, core reading in two languages, or using assessment data from the DRA2 or EDL2. Don't forget to check Soleado—Promising Practices from the Field, as well as the DLeNM Monograph Series, for additional information on these topics.

Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success (AIM4S3) is designed to provide a framework of instructional components that shelter 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 can be implemented with any mathematics program or curriculum for students in kindergarten through high school, as well as post-secondary school. This model provides the strategies to allow students to own the language, to be able to access the knowledge, and to be fluent in demonstrating their understanding. It also deepens teachers’ mathematical understanding and curricular knowledge.

A Compendium, the second component of the AIM4S3 model, is a large wall chart created with students to provide the foundational "big picture" for a mathematics unit of study. The Compendium helps to build a common language, define the standards for the unit in student-friendly language, capture what students already know about the topic along with their questions, and visually represent the key concepts of the unit. It is very much a living document, as students use the chart throughout a unit to clarify, communicate, and connect new understandings to old.
