  • Review what I believe we know…
  • They can use the term scientifcally based as well to clarify what they know and the like…
  • Learning styles is something we all appear to know about, parents connect with learning styles, and the like…so how do you fall and do we teach to a student’s learning style? Talk about the fact that others will state they work…effective…appear in the literature…Dunn and Dunn out of NY…make a point that these are used…my entire Masters program was centered around this aspect…
  • Make the point that RtI covers a great deal of information but specific to Literacy we are learning a bunch
  • Set the stage that we have RtI and there is a federal push Folks see this as an Elelmentary Push states are strating to focus beyond prek-6
  • Part of the National Center on LD why is this occuring what does this mean ask them when what we generlaly due when do we stop these efforts?

    1. 1. Response to Intervention <ul><li>In the Middle/High School Setting - Technology-based Considerations </li></ul>
    2. 2. Agenda for Today <ul><li>Consider RtI - Overview </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Connection to Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Connection to Middle/High - What we Know </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tiers and Technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Structuring technology considerations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology-based solutions </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Who am I? <ul><li>Associate Professor </li></ul><ul><li>Middle/Secondary Teacher </li></ul><ul><li>Father of Four </li></ul><ul><li>Who are you? </li></ul>
    4. 4.
    5. 5. Our Resources for the Day <ul><li> </li></ul>
    6. 6. RtI Primer <ul><li>RtI stands for? </li></ul><ul><li>There are _____ tiers? </li></ul><ul><li>Three critical features of RtI include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>___ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>___ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>___ </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Three Models (Uses) of RTI <ul><li>Prediction & Prevention </li></ul><ul><ul><li>prediction of at-risk students and preventing students from falling behind </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Remediation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>intervention for students with academic or behavioral difficulties </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Disability Assessment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>an intensive intervention test that is one component in the SLD determination process </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. Critical Elements of RtI <ul><li>Implementation of a differentiated curriculum with different instructional methods </li></ul><ul><li>Two or more tiers of increasingly intense, scientific, research-based interventions </li></ul>
    9. 9. Critical Elements of RtI <ul><li>Individual problem-solving model or standardized intervention protocol for intervention tiers (possibly in combination) </li></ul><ul><li>Progress monitoring to assess entire class progress and individual student progress </li></ul><ul><li>Explicit decision rules for assessing learners’ progress (e.g., level and/or rate) </li></ul>
    10. 10. What Does RtI Implementation Look Like? <ul><li>Students receive high-quality, research-based instruction by qualified staff in their general education setting (primary intervention) </li></ul><ul><li>General education instructors and staff assume an active role in students’ assessment in that curriculum </li></ul><ul><li>School staff conduct universal screening of (a) academics and (b) behavior (> 1/yr) </li></ul><ul><li>School staff implement specific, research-based interventions to address the students’ difficulties </li></ul>
    11. 11. Core of RtI <ul><li>Please list three research-based practices that you use across the course of a week? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Describe it? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How do you know it is evidence-based? </li></ul></ul>
    12. 12. Do we Teach to Learning Styles? <ul><li>What Type of Learner Are You? </li></ul><ul><li>I like to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hear it… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>See it… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Touch it… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Read it… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Experience it… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What is your Learning Style? </li></ul>
    13. 13. Learning Styles - Research-based? <ul><li>Structure experiences based on the type of learner we believe our students to be… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Offer more visual experiences because we have a class of visual learners… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hands-on experiences for those tactile learners… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Auditory experiences for those that learn best through listening… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Examples? </li></ul></ul>
