Big ideas about today s presentation

Big Ideas about Today’s Presentation

  • We’re aligning a delivery system to educational needs.

  • We’re increasing the quality of teaching, tools, and support across 3-Tiers instead of moving the problem.

  • We’re shifting mind sets: Every problem learning (or behaving) becomes a special education problem.

  • In a perfect world, we shouldn’t have “RtI” (as an eligibility process) at the secondary level.

  • We’re shifting “Interventions” focus from reactive, punitive, and/or restrictive to proactive, preventative, inclusive.

  • We have the tools and we have experience, but there is a gap.

Student profiles

Student Profiles

  • 8.7 million 4th-12th graders can’t cope with academic demands

  • 74% of all 9th graders scored at Unsatisfactory or Basic Level on state assessment

    • Unsatisfactory = 3%ile WR; 1%ile RC

    • Basic=9%ile WR; 8%ile RC

  • 70% of adolescents graduate; 50% of students with color do

  • Students who stay “on track” in freshman year (earn 5 credits and no more than 1 F) 3.5 times as likely to graduate

  • “On-track Indicator”

    • Students who stay “on track” in freshman year (earn 5 credits and no more than 1 F) 3.5 times as likely to graduate

    • One semester F decreases likelihood of graduating from 83% to 60%

    • 2 Fs decreases likelihood to 44%

    • 3 Fs decreases likelihood to 31%

The “Old” Problem Solving Heuristic


What is not rti it s not your father s oldsmobile

What is NOT RtI: It’s not your father’s Oldsmobile

  • It’s Not About SE Eligibility with a new label (e.g., pre-referral intervention, old team-new name).

  • It’s Not About SE “Business as Usual” with programs that meet the needs of adults more than students.

  • Expecting GE Teachers to meet the needs of ALL students (180 students-180 different interventions).


Presentation intended outcomes

    Not Everything We Teach Is Equally Important“The sheer quantity of information requires us to constantly determine what to include in a course”Keith Lenz, 2003

    Students need intensive intervention to work on basic literacy components

    Students need intensive intervention to work on basic literacy components.

    • Students develop the foundational phonics, fluency, and comprehension skills through specialized, direct, and intensive instruction in reading. Intensive instruction in listening, speaking, and writing is often a part of these services.

    • For example: Courses in researched-based reading

      programs such as the SRA Corrective Reading Program or REACH.


    How will basic literacy skill instruction be provided

    How will basic literacy skill instruction be provided?

    • Requires a double-block schedule of English/Language Arts and Reading.

    • Where does the time come from?

      • High School Option

        • Reading as an elective

      • Middle School Options

        • Reading instruction instead of foreign language

        • Reading course within the fine arts rotation


    An intensive multi faceted option for those who need it

    An intensive multi-faceted option for those who need it.

    • Students with underlying language needs learn the linguistic, related cognitive, metalinguistic, and metacognitive underpinnings they need to acquire content literacy skills and strategies.

    • For example: Speech-language pathologists, special education teachers, and social workers engage students in educational language and literacy instruction using a researched-based program such as the Sopris West Language! Program.

    High school tier 1 example

    High School Tier 1 Example:

    • English Dept. prior to 1993:

      • Reading and writing skills were not taught in a consistent manner at LFHS

      • Members of the English Dept. began learning about Nancie Atwell’s reading and writing workshops and developed a proposal to bring this concept to LFHS

      • The School Board approved the proposal and all teachers were trained in the program for the 1994-95 school year


    Writing workshop

    • PRINCIPLES AND REQUIREMENTS:

      • Each student must produce 3 pieces of writing that go through the conferencing process

      • Each student must produce a portfolio of the writing process

      • The focus is on the writing process

      • Students must have ownership and their written work must be student-generated


    Reading workshop

    Reading Workshop

    • PRINCIPLES AND REQUIREMENTS:

      • At least 12 days/year must be devoted to reading workshop

      • Students should be provided time to read

      • Students should gain ownership over texts by selecting what they read

    English dept 2005 06

    English Dept 2005-06

    • High level of satisfaction with the writing skills of students at LFHS

    • Less satisfaction with reading skills and overall enjoyment of reading (based off of 1st semester English finals and anecdotal information)


    Vocabulary the broad context

    Vocabulary: The Broad Context…..

    “Of the many compelling reasons for providing students with instruction to build vocabulary, none is more important than the contribution of vocabulary knowledge to reading comprehension. Indeed, one of the most enduring findings in reading research is the extent to which students’ vocabulary knowledge relates to their reading comprehension.”

    Lehr, F., Osborn, J., Hiebert, E.H. (2004). Focus on Vocabulary, San Francisco: Pacific Resources for Education and Learning.

    At least at the school wide level you are trying to get 80 of your staff teaching

    At least at the school-wide level – you are trying to get 80% of your staff teaching!

    In Illinois – when schools get to 80/80

    • Fewer risk factors

    • More protective factors

    • More likely to have tried interventions beyond SW

    • More students with fewer discipline problems

    Step 1 problem identification

    Step 1: Problem Identification

    Question: What is the discrepancy between what is expected and what is occurring?

    • 2/3 of Maple’s individual student referrals were due to lack of on-time assignment/homework completion.


    Response to intervention rti at the secondary level keys to implementation

    • A homework assignment is defined as any academic assignment assigned by a core academic, foreign language, allied arts, or physical education teacher to be completed after school. Homework does not include bringing appropriate supplies to class, turning in forms of any kind, or participation in fundraising activities.

    • A homework assignment that is turned in on time is defined as being received by the assigning teacher at the requested day and class period.


    Comparison of fall 2003 and fall 2004 homework completion

    2003

    Average student had 18 assignments

    Average student turned in one assignment late

    Average student had 7% of homework late

    2004

    Average student had 18 assignments

    Average student turned in one assignment late

    Average student had 6% of homework late

    Step 2 problem analysis

    Step 2: Problem Analysis

    Question: Why is the problem occurring?

    Teachers determined a number of hypotheses including:

    • Lack of time

    • Lack of skill

    • Lack of motivation/interest in the subject area


    Step 3 plan development

    Step 3: Plan Development

    Question: What is the goal?

    • All students would turn in at least 80% of their homework on time.

      Question: How will progress be monitored?

    • Teachers will meet weekly and calculate the average work turned in per week for all students attending Homework Extension.


    Response to intervention rti at the secondary level keys to implementation

    Question: What is the intervention plan to address the goal?

    • Homework Extension takes place during lunch periods. Students assigned to Homework Extension will go to the lunchroom to get their lunch (if purchasing their lunch) and then report to the Homework Extension classroom.

    • Homework Extension is supervised by one/two of the lunch room supervisors in a separate classroom.


    Response to intervention rti at the secondary level keys to implementation

    • Homework Extension lasts the entire lunch period for the course of five school days. Students are then reevaluated. If work completion exceeds 80%, the student may return to the lunchroom. If not, he/she will be reassigned to Homework Extension.

    • If a student attends Homework Extension for three consecutive weeks, then the student is automatically referred for individual student problem solving.


    Step 4 plan implementation

    Step 4: Plan Implementation

    Question: How will implementation

    integrity be ensured?

    The principal required a weekly e-mail sent out to report which students qualified for Homework Extension and which attended Homework Extension and met their goals.

    The principal and assistant principal found a classroom and staff who would assist and monitor students’ work completion during lunch.


    Step 5 plan evaluation

    Step 5: Plan Evaluation

    Question: Is the intervention plan effective?

    • Are the students making progress toward the goal?

      • Yes, 66% of students were in HE for 1 week. (33%-2 weeks; 3%-3weeks; 11 students total.)

    • Is the student decreasing the discrepancy between him/her and the general education peers?

      • Yes, 77% of students were in HE only 1x. (11%-2x; 8%-3x; 4%-4x; 6 students total.)

    • Is the plan able to be maintained in the general education setting?

      • No, 34% of students were involved in HE; Universal not targeted problem.
