How do we know what is working or what to choose?

Let's each take a minute to write a snippet about a child in your class. Do not name the kiddo. Just your observations.

Let's discuss

What is the problem? What might help? How would you gage success? What does that mean for future? How do you share?

Our Process

  • Identify problem- verify it is documented- if not, request meeting with Laurie for further evaluation
  • Try to adapt
  • If adaptation is successful, meet with your team to write RTI with the one adaptation. Encourage others to try the adaptation or another. It can be different adaptations per class. Inform parents of adaptations
  • Note adaptations on lesson plans and grading
  • Set time to reevaluate
  • Put RTI in cumulative folder
