In October 2010, NYSED set a regulatory policy framework for the implementation of RtI for grades K – 4 in the area of reading. Response to Intervention (RtI) is a framework that combines data-driven problem solving with a focus on research-based practice, implemented with fidelity, to maximize the achievement of ALL students.

Leadership plays a very critical part in the RtI process. The administrator is the leader, coach, data consumer, and the person that works to align all that goes on at the school site to support RtI.

Participants will learn the following:
• the important role administrators play, especially in developing a schedule conducive to RtI implementation;
• reviewing data teams, with a focus on research-based best practices for the school and in the classrooms;
• practical suggestions with research-based practices in improving student achievement;
• developing an RtI framework that is realistic and age-appropriate for students at their building level.

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a school-wide model that uses data-based problem-solving to maximize the positive impact of academic and behavioral instruction and intervention for ALL students through the delivery of instruction in varying intensities. This five part webinar strand will address the connection between RtI and MTSS and how school can use this prevention process to address the academic and learning needs of ALL students.

Session 5 reviews the characteristics of effective planning and how to ensure academic skills and academic behavioral expectations are integrating across tiers. (75 minutes)

The Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) emphasize the need for content area teachers to address the literacy needs of ALL students and provide instruction that supports student engagement and discussion of complex text and understanding of academic vocabulary. This 2-day + one webinar session PD event is designed to provide intermediate, middle, and secondary teachers an opportunity to learn and infuse specific reading strategies within core instruction in the content areas. Day One presents a comprehensive overview of Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR), a research-validated instructional model designed to improve reading comprehension and content learning in general education and intervention settings in grades 4-12. On Day 2, participants learn how to fine tune strategy use, to incorporate cooperative learning into text-based discussions, and to lesson plan using CSR strategies and discipline-specific content and materials. A one hour, follow-up webinar is designed to further support successful implementation of CSR in content-area instruction. CSR can be used to differentiate core instruction in content area classrooms or as an intervention at Tier 2 or 3 of an RtI model. Participants will be given access to materials needed to implement CSR.
