Level 2 - 2 Day Training - Refresh, Reinforce and Consolidate - FRENCH 
with Wendy Maxwell, Creator of the AIM

Are you ready to improve your AIM teaching practice? A refresher is just what you need! This course will reinforce the AIM approach and will help you drive deeper student engagement.

This is a NEW workshop for AIM teachers! It is designed to provide extensive hands-on experience with a few aspects of AIM that teachers often need to review and reinforce. It is a preparatory workshop for success with Level 3 Up your Game with AIM workshop, which we are modifying to meet the needs of more experienced AIM teachers.

Because you will need to know the step one gestures to do the activities in this workshop, if you fit into any of these categories, we recommend that you repeat Level 1 - Beginner.

  • You have not actively used AIM for the past two years.
  • You have not implemented a Step 1 kit in full.
