OSSE is hosting an in-person "bridge event" on Response to Intervention (RtI) for elementary and middle school math students. Bridge events are designed to reduce the research-to-practice gap by expanding understanding of key content, building capacity among school systems, and helping educators to engage in data driven decision-making. RtI is a school-based, multi-level prevention system of identification and intervention for students at academic or behavioral risk.
This full-day training event will focus on research-based recommendations and strategies described in the What Works Clearinghouse practice guide “Assisting Students Struggling with Mathematics: RtI for Elementary and Middle Schools" (2009). The practice guide provides educators with evidence-based recommendations to identify students who need assistance in mathematics and to address these needs through focused interventions.
Participants will learn the following:
- A basic understanding of the RtI approach;
- Content and pedagogical practices that can be included in mathematics interventions; and
- Action planning strategies to incorporate intervention strategies into math instruction.
Audience: This training is ideal for elementary and middle school teachers and administrators. LEA or school teams of two or three people are encouraged to attend.
