AIM Pathways™

Imagine you had the tools to

teach every child to read

AIM PathwaysTM Interactive Digital Teacher Training Platform Is Available to Educators and Schools Nationwide

The AIM Pathways training is a must for anyone working with developing readers.  The platform uses a variety of modalities to engage with the content which helps ensure retention of the material.  The student-teacher videos are truly unique; it's as though you're in the classroom observing a master teacher who is implementing the strategies you just learned.  I highly recommend the AIM Pathways training as a great first step toward investing in your student's literacy skills.

-Steve Brady, Assistant Principal, Inwood Academy for Leadership

AIM delivers with its new AIM Pathways course! I highly recommend this innovative learning experience for any educator who wants evidence-based solutions to improve literacy instruction. This interactive and supportive course helps translate important language and literacy research into practical teaching strategies for students with reading difficulties.

Learn, Practice, Apply

Research shows that traditional stand and deliver workshops are ineffective at changing instructional practices.  Teachers find it difficult to translate theoretical models into classroom practice. For that reason, AIM PATHWAYScourses are designed to follow a Learn, Practice and Apply cycle. Participants acquire knowledge and then have the opportunity to practice that knowledge by completed specially designed activities that will help them begin that translation. Once they have learned and practiced their new skills, participants demonstrate their understanding of the content by applying their knowledge to real life scenarios via student case studies. Our Pathways to Proficient Reading course has has received accreditation from the International Dyslexia Association for its alignment to the IDA's Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.
