The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE), in partnership with the University of Central Arkansas Mashburn Center for Learning, announces an opportunity for educators to participate in the Arkansas Adolescent Literacy Intervention (AALI). The AALI is a researched validated methodology based on the Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) developed by Dr. Don Deshler, contributor to Reading Next, and the University of Kansas Research Center on Learning (KU-CRL). More information about Reading Next can be found online at http://www.all4ed.org/files/ReadingNext.pdf
This learning opportunity will provide high quality professional development in Content Enhancement Routine (CER), on-site coaching, and fidelity checks. The CERís are Tier I interventions that support a rigorous core curriculum. CER's will assist educators in effective and efficient planning for student learning using visual devices. The CERís simplify complex content increasing the likelihood of academic success. The SIM has been clinically tested for over 30 years. Significant gains in achievement for students with and without mild disabilities have been proven with fidelity of implementation.
AALI professional learning may be offered onĖsite or regionally. It is recommended that a complete grade level participate. The estimated cost is $1,000 per person per year. For individuals interested in this professional learning, complete the interest form below and e-mail to email@example.com. An AALI representative will provide interested persons with more information, upon receipt of the interest form.
