Syllabus

What Is Response to Intervention?

Have you been searching for ways to help your struggling readers? Well, wonder no more. Response to intervention is here to help. Your first lesson explores how response to intervention uses research-based and tiered strategies to help students overcome roadblocks to literacy. You will discover how these strategies will help you meet your adequate yearly progress goals.

RTI's Problem-Solving Model

Response to intervention is based on a problem-solving model, which means that you get to be a scientist while you're teaching reading. You will begin by giving students a universal screening, deciding which intervention tier will be most helpful, trying several strategies, and then tweaking as necessary. Of course, you're also constantly evaluating how well your plan is working and whether students could benefit from more or less support.

Phonemic Awareness Strategies

Did you know that most adults aren't sure just what phonemic awareness is? You definitely won't be one of them after this fun lesson on the smallest units of sound a word can be divided into. First, you will learn about how to identify phonemes (/c/a/t/), and then take a look at how Elkonin Boxes and alphabetic arcs help students build phonemic awareness for simple and complex words.

Phonics Strategies

Phonemic awareness is the key to phonics instruction, so this lesson continues your journey by building a bridge between the two. When you teach students phonics, you're helping them understand the relationship between the word's sounds and the letters that represent them. Soon you will be able to teach your students to parse words into their individual sounds and letters and then put them back together to spell new words.

Fluency Strategies

When many readers read, they don't need to pause to decode what they are seeing on the page. While you might take this for granted, it's an experience that's completely foreign to most struggling readers. So, in this lesson, you will explore the ways you can help struggling readers build fluency with direct and indirect approaches. This will help them learn to read with more automaticity.

Vocabulary-Building Strategies

Have you ever sat down to read a thermodynamics text just for fun? Probably not. Many readers prefer to read text with words they know. But for many of your students, that means only a handful of texts will fit the bill. What's the solution? Helping students build three tiers of vocabulary, from the common sight words on up to complicated words with prefixes and suffixes. You will learn how to do that in this lesson.

Comprehension Strategies

This lesson tackles comprehension by engaging students where they are so they can build a bridge to where they're going. You will learn about several powerful comprehension strategies, like Making Connections and Bloom's Taxonomy. With a little practice and a lot of coaching, your struggling readers will be making meaning in no time.

Content-Area Strategies

Get ready to meet a powerful strategy to help students who are struggling with content area reading. Have you heard of SQ3R? With such a complicated name, it looks like it belongs in science fiction, but it can actually help students decode ordinary math, science, social studies, and language arts text. In this lesson, you will discover how to survey, question, read, recite, and review.

Writing Strategies

Do any of your students suffer from Blank Page Syndrome when it's time to write? In this lesson, you will learn how to counter this difficult problem with some creative and fun ways to take the monotony out of putting ideas on paper. Get ready for Doodles to Details, brainstorming, quick writes, and more.

Differentiating Strategies

Perhaps you have already found a strategy you love, but you want to tweak it a little bit to better meet your students' needs. Well, that's what differentiation is all about—adding some extra spice to the classroom. This lesson covers how to tailor powerful response to intervention strategies to different students' learning styles, multiplying the choices you can offer your students.

Enhancing Teamwork

Are you eager to turn your school into a professional learning community? Great. This lesson delves into effective collaborate by exploring how you can use teamwork to build a more cohesive classroom and create more meaningful learning experiences. If you've been wondering just what goes into a strong team and how to get one started at your school, don't worry—you will soon have all the answers.

Cementing RTI Interventions

While you can perform literacy miracles at school if given enough time, ultimately, you need to involve parents if you want your efforts to last. In this final lesson, you will explore some smart strategies for getting parents on board including the best ways to communicate, share, and answer any questions that come up in the process.
