What do you do when the number of students needing tier 2 support is increasing, and these students are not making adequate progress? It is important to develop an effective tier 2 system that provides the right level of support for the students that are struggling with the core curriculum.
Such successful tier 2 implementation requires a refined systems approach that coordinates purpose, components, and key actions to help ensure success for the school and all students. What are the components of this work and how can we reach success?
In this webinar, we will focus on how to reach our MTSS students that are in need of tier 2 support. Topics to be covered will include the following:
Where do we start? Explore multiple sources of data
Which students do we support? Identifying students, creating groups, intervention plans
How do we support these students? Evaluating support and intervention materials
What do we do after the first round of intervention? Applying a problem-solving process
Linda Hawkins and Abby McCone are life-long educators. Both have experienced the firsthand struggles of the classroom teacher by teaching in kindergarten through eighth grades in a variety of diverse settings. Seeing the need for a broader reach, Linda and Abby became elementary school principals in the Dallas area, each of them for nearly two decades. It was here that they devoted their efforts to helping teachers gain the tools they needed to make the greatest impact on our nation’s youth. Preparing principals and teachers for this challenge was their focus as they served as adjunct professors in the university setting. Currently, both Linda and Abby work with Branching Minds to support districts across the country in implementing effective MTSS practices.
