Launching Intervention Groups (LIGs) Initial Training: The goal of initial training for launching

intervention groups is to prepare educators (teachers, interventionists, Title I, Special Educators, Education assistants, etc.) to work effectively within a MTSS / RTI model. Grade levels are grouped in a way that allows each to focus on the critical diagnostic measures and instructional strategies that pinpoint and address specific skill deficit areas, and allows teachers to monitor the effectiveness of instruction, adjusting as needed. During this initial training educators will:

  • Begin to develop a common language related to assessment and instruction
  • Develop an understanding of the difference between Tier I (Core) instruction and Intervention.
  • Consider the best model for delivering intervention instruction and see the possibilities (Walk to Read model).
  • Become familiar with the grade level appropriate continuum (or continua) that represent specific skills that must be addressed, from the easiest to more complex (Advanced Phonological Awareness; Blending; Phonics)
  • Have the opportunity to learn and practice administering and analyzing diagnostic assessments (PASI / PSI) including how to form appropriate groups based on lowest skill deficit areas
  • Have the opportunity to learn and practice delivering instruction using the intervention materials they will be teaching from
  • Refine their understanding and practice of the Gradual Release of Responsibility approach to instruction (I Do, We Do, You Do)
