Agile Mind’s digital curriculum and instructional resources can provide teachers, students, and parents opportunities for supporting home instruction as you face school closures. This summer, Rio Rancho teachers and students will be engaging in Agile Mind’s Academic Youth Development (AYD) summer programs virtually to help students develop key skills and mindsets for success in school.
This page provides resources to orient you to the AYD summer programs and the outcomes that students and educators who participate in this initiative can experience.

AYD connects students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) to challenges in school. More students succeed in school, career, and life when they learn skills that support their social and emotional development and then explicitly connect those skills to their academic learning.
This suite of programs translates the latest research on student mindset, motivation, learning, and persistence into practical classroom strategies and tools that can be enacted every day, in every classroom, to produce a lasting impact on every student.
AYD summer programs help students develop the habits of mind
and actions associated with success in school and the workplace, and
have daily opportunities to apply new learning to challenging problems
Integrating SEL with challenging mathematics
Academic Youth Development connects students’ learning with foundational mathematics content. Students apply new skills to real-world problem-solving in areas of mathematics that are essential to their grade-level achievement. They learn and refine proven strategies for mathematics success, and collaborate with peers to analyze and understand problem situations, develop conjectures, and describe their thinking.
This document highlights outcomes for students and educators who participate in AYD, in terms of what they know and do related to key ideas and strategies in the program.
