Response to Intervention for English Learners

Last Date:

1050 First St. NE
First Floor, Eleanor Holmes Norton III Room 110

OSSE invites all pre-K-12 teachers who support English learners (ELs) to a new training focused on how to identify and plan instruction for culturally and linguistically diverse learners who need additional support in the classroom to be academically successful. Response to Intervention (RtI) can be designed to incorporate cultural relevance, student background knowledge, and learning styles to make instruction more relevant and effective for ELs. This training will focus on RtI Tier 1 as a tool for meeting ELs where they are culturally and linguistically so they can demonstrate academic achievement.

Participants will understand:

  • How to define RtI
  • Characteristics of the different tiers of RtI
  • Considerations for designing and implementing RtI Tier 1 for ELs
  • Instructional practices to support the RtI Tier 1 in the classroom
