    • Assess…Address…Success! Response to Intervention (RtI) at GCMS Elementary
    • Venturing into new territory…
    • GCMS jumped on the RtI bandwagon. Why?
    • We needed to try something new!
      • Our building reading scores were at 75% meets/exceeds. One student out of four was not meeting state standards. That was just not acceptable!
      • So… the initial impetus of RtI at GCMS was to give our students the tools to increase their reading successes.
    • RtI defined
      • Assessment determines individual student needs and allows for data-driven decision making.
      • Instructional interventions target students’ specific weaknesses.
      • Research based interventions are available to all students.
      • Early intervention is key to student success.
      • The success of all learners is the focus.
    • Essential components of RtI Implementation
      • Multi-tier model
      • Problem-solving method- Team work!
      • Integrated data collection/assessment system
      • Primary and upper elementary assessments
      • Focus on 5 elements of reading instruction
      • Scheduling/flexibility!
    • 5% of students High At-Risk Learner Research based interventions 1-3 pupils/group 45-60 minutes supplement Progress monitoring weekly on target skill(s) 15% of students At-Risk Learners Research based interventions 4-6 pupils/group 20-45 minutes supplement Progress monitoring every 2 weeks on target skill(s) 80% of students All Learners receive Core Reading program (McMillan-McGraw Hill) 90 minutes/day grades K-3 (primary focus) 60 minutes/day grades 4-5 Benchmark assessments at beginning, middle and end of year (Areas: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension) Multi-tier model Component 1
    • Problem Solving Method Component 2
    • Team Teacher and Interventionist 2008-09
    • Integrated data collection/assessment system Component 3 We are working hard to develop a data collection system that uses the information found on our student intervention sheets, student data sheets and our formal and informal assessment probes.
    • Draft red = at risk 30 = Very concerned yellow = some risk 20 = Somewhat concerned green = low risk 10 = Slightly concerned * 0 = Not concerned                 8                 7                 6                 5                 4                 3                 2                 1     (9 weeks) Pre-Test     Rating (0-3)*     Comments Star Test Reading Grade Reading SAT 10 ISAT Teacher DIBELS Student Student Data
    • Individual Student Intervention Plan
      • DIBELS (Gr. K-1-2) Dynamic Indicators of Basic Literacy Skills
      • 3 benchmarks- fall, winter and spring
      • All students assessed
      • Used as probes for tier movement
      • Subtests for 5 reading components
      • MAP (Gr. 3-4-5) Measures of Academic Progress
      • Computerized- immediate results
      • Adaptive tests measure growth fall, winter and spring
      • All students assessed (adaptive!)
      Component 4
      • Focus of daily reading instruction:
      • Phonics
      • Phonemic Awareness
      • Vocabulary
      • Fluency
      • Comprehension
      Component 5
    • Scheduling & flexibility! Component 6
    • Our source of pride for our efforts in 2007-08. ISAT- Reading
    • We are not satisfied! There is still much more to do! More kids to reach! We have formulated a plan to improve!
    • What we want to do:
      • Increase parent involvement
      • Increase para-professional involvement
      • Increase Tier I Block time to 90 minutes for Grades 4 & 5
      • Refine our documentation and intervention process
      • Continue to ambitiously seek out new research based interventions.
    • Our intentions are to continue to assess our students to best address their needs and continue to celebrate our students’ reading success !
