Meeting the Needs of English Learners With Reading Difficulties Through a Multitiered Instructional Framework

OSEP Project Directors’ MeetingJuly 2014


Model demonstration projects

Model Demonstration Projects

  • The goal is to design, develop, and implement promising, evidence-based RTI models in real-world contexts.

    • The projects are located in Colorado and Texas in urban, rural, and near urban areas.

    • El population range between 31 and 86%

    • Three different program types: early exit bilingual, dual language, and ESL.


Rti components

RTI Components

  • Tier I Differentiated, high-quality, research-based language and literacy teaching in both the primary language and English

  • Data-based Decision Making screening; progress monitoring; language proficiency data; regular data review

  • Supplemental Instruction (Tiers II & III) Differentiated, high-quality, research-based language and literacy instruction with varying levels of intensity

RTI

  • A culturally and linguistically responsive RTI model ensures that no group of students is over or underrepresented in Tiers 2 or 3 because it takes into account the many factors that can impact students’ learning and their performance on literacy measures.

  • Children’s diverse backgrounds are recognized as valuable resources to support their learning.

  • Students’ linguistic diversity is seen as an asset to build upon rather than a deficit to remediate.


Key questions

Key Questions

  • What is the role of language in RTI and how does it impact implementation?

  • How do we ensure that our response to intervention process is culturally responsive?

  • How can resources be coordinated to optimize a tiered instructional framework for Els?

Instruction

  • Oral language development promoted through direct instruction and structured practice:

    • Emphasis on building academic language

    • Develop English vocabulary knowledge through explicit instruction, interactive read alouds, cognate instruction, and morphological analysis

  • Include all four communicative processes:

    • Opportunities to use language for learning: discussions

    • Writing as a means to learn language and build literacy skills

  • Explicit instruction in the transfer of literacy skills across languages

Assessment

  • Assessment of reading skills in both languages

  • Language of assessment should match language of instruction


How do we ensure that our response to intervention process is culturally responsive

How do we ensure that our response to intervention process is culturally responsive?

Instruction

  • Evidence-based practices are valid for the population with whom they are applied

  • Educators understand the role of culture in how individuals think, learn, and communicate

  • Educators articulate an affirming attitude toward students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds


How do we ensure that our response to intervention process is culturally responsive continued

How do we ensure that our response to intervention process is culturally responsive? (continued)

Instruction

  • Students’ primary languages and cultural backgrounds are seen as assets to learning, and teachers use those as conduits for new learning

  • Educators collaborate with students families and communities and validate the funds of knowledge students acquire from home and community experiences

Assessment

  • Screening and progress monitoring assessment criteria clearly articulated within and across languages


How can resources be coordinated to optimize a tiered instructional framework for els

How can resources be coordinated to optimize a tiered instructional framework for Els?

Human resources:

  • Aschool-wide teacher collaboration structure that includes personnel knowledgeable in the planning and delivery of instruction, and assessment that addresses the language and literacy needs of ELs.

  • Administrators support and commit resources for personnel and materials needed by ELs.


How can resources be coordinated to optimize a tiered instructional framework for els continued

How can resources be coordinated to optimize a tiered instructional framework for Els? (continued)

Human resources (continued):

  • RTI team common meeting times supported by school administration.

  • Partnerships with a local youth foundationsto provide an extended school day as a way to access community human resources.

  • Provide teachers with co-planning time.

  • Material resources:

    • curricula and instructional material that are research-based and research tested with ELs;

    • culturally and personally relevant curriculum resources; and,

    • modifications to generic curriculum and instructional practices aimed to meet both the language and literacy needs of ELs;


Lessons learned

Lessons Learned

  • The role of language in RTI and how it impacts implementation.

  • Ensuring that our response to intervention process is culturally responsive.

  • Coordinating resources to optimize a tiered instructional framework for Els.

  • University-School District partnerships facilitate instructional change.


Conclusion

Conclusion

A critical aspect of RTI for Els is making certain that cultural and linguistic factors unique to diverse learners are considered and addressed in responsive ways.
