Your school gives its struggling and exceptional learners a great deal of support. But, do you often feel that this support could be far more effective if interventions were better targeted and structured?
Join Lee Ann Jung for a 2-hour webinar on a simple intervention planning and progress-monitoring process that has a proven track record with this student population. The session focuses on students with disabilities, English learners, and students receiving interventions in a Response to Intervention (RTI) model. Lee Ann says because RTI’s roots are in early reading development, there are many resources for general literacy outcomes at the elementary level, but not for students in other course areas or at the secondary level.
The goal of the webinar is not to teach intervention strategies, but to help you fine-tune your process for selecting, organizing, and individualizing interventions you already use. The webinar will also focus on systematic and practical data collection. You will receive a one-page intervention plan form that you can reproduce and use to integrate short-term objectives, define strategies for use in the general classroom, and monitor student progress.
- Determining outcomes and strategies for critical skills
- How to develop rubrics for those outcomes
- What data to collect to inform interventions
- Sharing data with families and students so they can participate in decisions
- Selecting interventions and customizing them to the classroom
- Setting up a progress record
- Keeping it all practical
