Description

Give educators user-friendly, step-by-step guidelines for implementing response to intervention in their classrooms! Designed around the best-selling book "Response to Intervention: A Practical Guide for Every Teacher", this comprehensive multimedia presentation offers staff developers explicit tools to help teachers use multiple approaches to Response to Intervention (RTI)-including three-tier and four-tier models - to target instruction and improve learning. This all-in-one resource helps workshop leaders demonstrate how to use research-based interventions to individualize instruction, monitor individual student progress, and respond to specific student needs. Discussion points for workshop participants include: documenting the existence or nonexistence of a learning disability; using RTI techniques to benefit students who are economically underprivileged and//or culturally and linguistically diverse; assuring treatment fidelity using research-supported curriculum; and, gathering data to make informed instructional decisions for students. Presenting vignettes and examples that illustrate the problem-solving strengths of RTI techniques, this multimedia kit includes: The companion book, "Response to Intervention", providing the foundational framework for implementing RTI in the classroom; a 42-minute, content-rich VHS video that features William N. Bender and Cara Shores, along with administrators and teachers who demonstrate how RTI methods meet the needs of all students in inclusive classrooms; a companion DVD with navigational menus and bullets for easy stop-and-search control of the video content; and, a step-by-step Facilitator's Guide that connects the core content of the book to both the video and DVD and includes video//DVD segment prompts, workshop outlines, extended workshop activities, discussion questions, and key points.
