Tiered Support ELA Standards K-8

with Shannon Harken

Wednesday, January 21 and Thursday, January 22, 2015

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 encourages effective implementation of the NH College and Career Ready Literacy Standards (NH CCRS) for all children.

During this conference, attendees will:

  • Review the instructional shifts of the NH College and Career Ready Standards, and understand what they really mean to teachers' planning and teaching.
  • Understand the interdependence of speaking/listening, reading, writing, and Language.
  • Learn about specific instructional routines and strategies that address numerous ELA standards simultaneously.
  • Understand the interaction of the NH CCRS with Tier 2 and Tier 3 supports.
  • Recognize explicit connections to the NH Response to Instruction Framework.

SERESC consultants with expertise in both CCRS implementation and RtI/Tiered instruction will be attending much of the conference to provide support to school teams.

The presentation ends at noon on the 22nd. Following lunch on the 22nd, teams and individuals may use the time, with presenter and consultant support available, to review learning and make plans for implementation.

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.
