Pathways to Proficient Reading is an IDA accredited foundational course in the science of reading, designed for educators who are committed to learning about the connection between reading research, theoretical models such as the Simple View of Reading and Scarborough’s Reading Rope, and best practices for language and literacy instruction in the classroom.
AIM Pathways is an interactive, digital professional development platform designed to strengthen educators’ knowledge and skills in the science of literacy instruction. In order to translate theoretical models into classroom practice, AIM PATHWAYS™ courses are designed to follow a Learn, Practice, and Apply cycle. Participants acquire knowledge through hundreds of learning tools including articles, teacher classroom videos, animations, and videos of experts in the field.
Participants will practice with specially-designed interactive activities and downloadable resources to help them translate their new knowledge into instructional practice. Participants demonstrate an understanding of the content by applying their new knowledge to real-life classroom scenarios via multi-step student case studies.
