Blended Learning & RtI
We can, whenever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us. We already know more than we need to do that. Whether or not we do it must finally depend on how we feel about the fact that we haven’t so far.
--Ron Edmonds, 1982 in DeFour et al., 2004
Learning targets for today:
- I can explain the basics of RtI.
- I can connect the I-SS model and RtI.
- I can explain the layers of the RtI triangle.
- I can plan ways to provide remediation and/or a tier 1 intervention with my students from now until the end of the year.
What is RtI?
- Responsiveness to Instruction (RtI) helps ALL students be successful!
- It's differentiating to meet all students' needs.
- It's using data to drive instruction.
- It's problem solving with a team to provide layers of support for students.
What it isn't:
- only for EC students
- a program
- a one-time thing
- only for students with behavior problems
RtI is WHAT we're learning today.
Blended Learning (lab rotation model) is HOW we'll learn about RtI today.
Resources for Teacher-led Session
Resources for Lab Session A:
Making a plan:
- On the Venn diagram handout, capture the similarities and differences between remediation & intervention.
- Begin formulating a plan to address the needs of your students for the remainder of the semester. How can you provide remediation & interventions that will close gaps for your students? How can your PLC work together to make this happen?
