AIM Coaching (OSEP)


The three primary goals of the AIM Coaching grant that is funded through the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) are to: 1) gain a better understanding of how to implement and sustain school-wide models that encourage instruction in evidence-based vocabulary and comprehension practices across Tier 1 English language arts, social studies, and science classes and in Tiers 2-3 reading intervention and special education classes; 2) increase knowledge about the implementation, efficacy, and sustainability of AIM Coaching when it is implemented under routine conditions; and 3) increase availability of evidence-based technical assistance on PD, coaching, and school-wide adolescent literacy models. See the Adolescent Literacy & Professional Development Lab page for more information.
