  • Problem-solving is a process that includes systematic analysis of a student’s behavior or academic difficulty in the context of a functional assessment plan. Data gathered through the functional assessment plan are then used to develop an instructional plan / strategy specific to the problem. The implementation of this plan / strategy is then monitored and data are evaluated to determine effectiveness.
  • Take a few minutes to review this form and talk with your team.
  • Parent and teacher together brainstorm ideas for interventionsDiscuss what interventions look likeLook at differentiated instructionCreate a Parent/Teacher LogDevelop progress monitoring planSet time table for reconvening to evaluate interventions Implement intervention planEvaluateUse progress monitoringDetermine effectiveness of interventionProblem-solving model forms are completed to document the process.
  • Problem-solving model forms are completed to document the process.
  • Cycle repeats, but in a more formal and systematic way. May include the school-based problem solving team. Team may consist of referring teacher, parent, administrator, psychologist, EC staff member, counselor, regular education representative, anyone else neededForms are completed to document each step of the process. Data are collected and charted to provide visual representation of skill acquisition. Problem-solving model forms are completed to document the process.
  • Team identifies areas to be addressed as concerns and determines that intensity of interventions require more than can be addressed in the regular classroom.Problem-solving model forms are completed to document the process.

    20. 20. Framework for Developing a Differentiated classroom<br />-Who are your learners? (Are you all alike or are there important differences?)<br />-Given the differences you see, how should you teach them?<br />-If your classroom is going to work for all of your students, what will it be like?(How will it need to function? What roles will each play?)<br />-How can you learn more about the students starting points, interests. And best ways of learning?<br />-If you have a differentiated classroom, can it be fair? (What will “fair” mean in the room?)<br />-What will success in this class mean? (How will you know if you’re succeeding?(How will the students know?)<br /> pp. 45-46<br />

    22. 22. When the school bell rings on day one and all our students are in their seats, we will hold the future of this nation and this world in our hands. Whatever we do will have lasting implications, not only on the lives of those student, but also on the lives of all those who they come in contact with. So then, the question that we should ask ourselves should not be, “How can I make this work?” The question must be, “How can I afford not to make this work?”<br />-Wendy Kopp, One Day, All Children<br />
    23. 23. Responsiveness to Instruction <br />RtI<br />Wilkes County Schools<br />Middle Schools<br />2011-2012<br />
    24. 24. If we really believe that all children can learn, then …<br /> it is not acceptable for<br /> any child to fail to learn<br />
    25. 25. FOCUS<br />…focus on addressing the needs of ALL students having difficulty, not just those with labels<br />…focus on ALL educators being responsible for ALL students<br />…focus on the solution rather than the problem<br />…focus on an instruction/intervention rather than on what is wrong with the student<br />
    26. 26. NC DPI Definition of RtI <br />The practice of providing high quality instructionmatched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals and applying child response data to important educational decisions. <br />Response to Intervention Policy Considerations and Implementation,<br />National Association of State Directors of Special Education, Inc.<br />
    27. 27. What is RtI?<br />Framework that focuses on:<br />Appropriate, targeted instruction<br />Researched-based teaching strategies <br />Early intervention<br />Accurate assessment with valid, reliable data<br />Frequent progress monitoring<br />Informed instructional decisions<br />
    28. 28. Why RtI?<br />Alignment of student’s needs with specific instructional strategies that are research-based <br />Recognition of needs that allow for early intervening<br />Enrichment and extension of curriculum<br />Reinforcement of skills and concepts<br />
    29. 29. How is This Different?<br />Creates a shift in focus <br />proactive rather than reactive<br />eliminates “Wait to Fail”<br />Early intervening to prevent failure<br />More efficient use of resources<br />Supports family partnerships<br />
    30. 30. What are some advantages of RtI?<br />One advantage of RTI in the diagnosis of educational disabilities is that it allows schools to intervene early to meet the needs of struggling learners. <br />Another advantage is that RTI maps those specific instructional strategies found to benefit a particular student. This information can be very helpful to both teachers and parents.<br />
    31. 31. How Do We Do This?<br /><ul><li>Educate all students:
    32. 32. Build upon prior knowledge and experience
    33. 33. Address a wide range of skill levels
    34. 34. Instruct utilizing various forms of data
    35. 35. Provide instruction at the appropriate instructional level matched to student needs</li></li></ul><li>RtI is Not…. <br />A packaged program<br />A curriculum<br />Special Ed<br />Just for eligibility identification<br />A place in the building<br />RtI<br />
    36. 36. RtI is…….<br />The whole school working together<br />Process that uses all resources within a school<br />Instruction guided by student outcome data<br />Instruction & interventions matched to student’s needs<br />Prevention of academic and behavioral problems<br />Using resources and expertise to help all students<br />Regular monitoring of success/needs<br />Multi-step process<br />High-quality, research-based instruction and interventions<br />Varying levels of intensity<br />Match interventions to student’s needs<br />Data driven instruction !<br /> RtI <br />

    67. 67. What are CBM’s? (curriculum based measurements)<br />CBM is a method of monitoring student educational progress through direct assessment of academic skills<br />CBMs measure basic skills in reading, mathematics, spelling, written expression and readiness skills<br />Teacher gives the student brief, timed samples, or “probes,” made up of academic material that the student is expected to learn<br />Early literacy skills (phonics and phonological awareness) are downward extensions of CBM.<br />Because CBM probes are quick to administer and simple to score, they can be given frequently to provide continuous progress data. The results are charted and provide for timely evaluation based on hard data.<br />
    68. 68. Why do we use CBM’s for progress monitoring?<br />Reliable and valid indicator of student achievement<br />Simple, efficient, and of short duration to facilitate frequent administration by teachers<br />Provides assessment information that helps teachers plan better instruction<br />Sensitive to the improvement of students’ achievement over time<br />Easily understood by teachers and parents<br />Improves achievement when used to monitor progress<br />
