Accelerating Learning in Mathematics (ALiM) 2017
ALiM is an intervention available for Years 1 – 8. There are two intakes of ALIM per year. Schools will be in either intake 1 (terms 1-3) or intake 2 (terms 2-4). Note: for the ALiM events only 2 per school may attend.
Each intake has the same structure:
For the principal and mathematics leader
Evaluation and Self-Review. Review of strengths and needs, student achievement data, selection of teachers and student, overview of expectations and system supports.
For the mathematics leader and the ALiM teacher
Planning. Planning the intervention, focusing on identifying key levers for improved mathematics teaching and learning.
The 15-week intervention itself takes place. The teacher provides supplementary support for a small group of 6-8 students who are below (and sometimes well below) the standard in mathematics. The teacher is supported by the SIT and mentor to inquire into their practice.
For the principal and ALiM teacher
Impact and Refocus. Review, reflection, reporting and forward planning. Reflect on the mentor support that was provided.
