Mission Possible: Practical, Reasonable, and Doable

Every child should have access to strong and effective instruction and targeted levels of support. A multi-tiered instructional system of supports promotes successful achievement of the NH College and Career Ready ELA Standards for all children.

During this conference, attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain perspective on what teachers really need to know to support learners at multiple levels,
  • Walk through what the instructional shifts of the CCRS really mean to teachers' planning and teaching,
  • Understand the interdependence of speaking/listening, reading, writing, and Language.
  • Learn specific instructional routines/strategies which address numerous ELA standards simultaneously, and
  • Understand the possible, reasonable and doable interactions of CCRS with Tier 2 and Tier 3 supports.

Ms. Harken's presentation will include explicit connections to the NH Response to Instruction Framework.

SERESC Consultants who have expertise in College and Career Ready Standards implementation and Response to Instruction will be in attendance for much of the conference, and available for followup consultation and facilitation for integration of tiered supports.

Eligible for 1 graduate credit from Plymouth State University.

Additional fees and assignments apply.

About the Presenter

Shannon Harken, M.A.Ed., Professional Learning and Leadership Consultant

Shannon Harken, M.A.Ed., began her career as an elementary and special education teacher in 1991. She also served as a special education consultant in a problem-solving service delivery system, where she helped school-based teams use data to develop a more efficient, proactive, and systematic process to meet the needs of all students. Shannon currently works as an RtI Professional Learning and Leadership Consultant (PLLC) for Heartland AEA 11.

Based on her experiences, teaching background, and knowledge from experts in the field, Shannon has spent the last 10 years, co-authoring and training RtI modules in the areas of consensus building, infrastructure development, and implementation to hundreds of school-based teams across the country interested in implementing RtI. She also has co-developed several organizational tools, such as a four-box format that groups students with similar instructional needs and provides guidance for an appropriate instructional match and action plans, for school-based teams to use as they work towards implementing RtI.

In addition to training new schools Shannon provides on-going follow-up trainings, holds coaches meetings, and assists buildings with data analysis and decision making. The lessons she continually learns while in the “RtI implementation trenches” greatly enhance her work as she strives to assist schools to raise the achievement of all students.
