We differentiate for students – why not for teachers?
Content teachers may not have experience teaching literacy in their classrooms. Although professional development can help, some teachers may need more support, while others can hit the ground running. Instructional coaches may not know which category their teachers fall into. And even if they do, they may not have time to effectively differentiate coaching for all teachers’ needs.
Solution – AIM Coaching
A coaching model that allows coaches to collect effective data to help teachers with their individualized needs. Teachers get the tailored support they need so they can provide great literacy instruction to their students.
Grounded in Research
AIM coaching utilizes the Adaptive Intervention model. The AIM coaching model takes a teacher’s individual skill and will into account to create tailored coaching support. The goal of AIM coaching is to empower teachers to infuse literacy practices into their content area instruciton.
Why focus on literacy instruction in the content areas?
During middle school, students encounter more text than they ever have before. Middle school teachers report that their high-achieving students often struggle with the expectation to learn content from text. For their struggling readers, the difficulty is even more pronounced.
Middle school teachers would love support in teaching content using text sources in a way that is feasible and easy to implement.
AIM Coaching is our response to both of these needs.
