Purpose of Presentation

Presentation is about:

  • Seeing the links between CCSS & RTI
  • Linking the CCSS and RTI to Research and Educational Policy
  • Linking Ingham ISD’s RTI work with Ingham’s CCSS implementation service
what is rti what are the common core state standards

What is RTI?What are the Common Core State Standards?

Turn to your partner and share:

Partner 1 share what your partner said about RTI with the group.

Partner 2 share what your partner said about common core with the group


“RTI is the practice of (1) providing high-quality instruction/intervention matched to student needs and (2) using learning rate over time and level of performance to (3) make important educational decisions to guide instruction”

~ National Association of State Directors

of Special Education, 2005

c ommon core state standards
Common Core State Standards?

K-12 standards in reading, mathematics writing, speaking, listening, literacyin history/social studies, science, technical subjects that set requirementsfor the learning of all studentsat age appropriate attainments

The standards are high quality (1) research and evidence based (2) aligned with college and work expectations (3) rigorous, and (4) internationally benchmarked




High-quality research and evidence based

K-12 standards

set requirementsfor the learning

for all students

at age appropriate attainments

internationally benchmarked

  • high-quality research and evidenced based instruction/intervention
  • using learning rate
  • and level of performance
  • for all students
  • to make important educational decisions
  • to guide instruction
big ideas of reading foundational to rti found in ccss
Big Ideas of ReadingFoundational to RTI Found in CCSS

The Five Big Ideas of Reading:

  • Phonemic Awareness (CCSS find in Foundational Skills)
  • Alphabetic Principle (Phonics) (CCSS find in Foundational Skills)
  • Fluency (CCSS find in Foundational Skills)
  • Vocabulary (CCSS find in Language)
  • Comprehension (CCSS find in own Category Comprehension)
core principles of an rti framework
Core Principles of an RtI Framework
  • We can effectively teach all children.
  • Intervene early.
  • Use a multi-tier model of support.
  • Use a problem-solving method for decision making.
  • Research-based interventions/instruction to the extent available.
  • Monitor student progress to inform instruction.
  • Use data to make decisions.
  • Use assessment (Universal Screener) for different purposes.
response to intervention what are the big ideas
Response to Intervention: What are the big ideas?

High quality instruction/intervention: Instruction or intervention matched to student need that has been demonstrated empirically and by practice to demonstrate high learning rates for most students

  • Learning rate and level of performance: Learning rate refers to student’s growth in academic or behavioral skills over time in comparison to prior levels and peer growth rates. Level of performance refers to a students relative standing (growth) on some critical dimension of academic or behavioral skills compared to expected/predicted growth.
  • Important educational decisions: Student intervention outcomes drive decision making at every tier. Decisions about intensity and duration of interventions are based upon data across multiple tiers of intervention.

CCSS and the materials for teachers to use to teach the curriculum

Instructional strategies necessary to effectively teach the students the skills that will lead to their mastery of the CCSS




Use of assessments for different purposes to determine mastery of skills and effectiveness of instruction

important considerations
Important Considerations

The CCSS are outcomes. In order to achieve the outcomes, there are specific skills students need to master within the standards to achieve the outcome.

RTI is a framework to develop how we ensure the outcomes we want are met.

Defining College and Career Readiness

“College ready”:

  • Prepared to enter and succeed in entry-level credit bearing courses without remediation

“Career ready”:

  • Prepared to enter the workforce in a career that provides a family-sustaining wage and has pathways to advancement

Contextual Skills and Awareness



  • Key Cognitive Strategies
    • Problem formulation, research,
    • interpretation, communication, precision and accuracy.
  • Key Content Knowledge
    • Key foundational content and “big ideas” from core subjects.
  • Academic Behaviors
    • Self-management skills: time management, study skills, goal setting, self-awareness, and persistence.
  • Contextual Skills (types and missions, affording college, college culture, and relations with professors, admissions requirements, how to apply)

Driving Common Core

Disparate standards across states highlight lack of coherence, focus, and clarity (specificity)

Student mobility affects equity

Global competition increases expectations

Jobs in the 21st century require more advanced skills

status of ccss implementation iisd constituent districts
Status of CCSS Implementation: IISD Constituent Districts

6/11 districts have active, District Team (2/6 integrated w/other district initiatives)

8/11 districts grade levels & departments meeting

10/11 districts report ELA gap analysis; 8/10 math gap analysis; 2/11 science/SS analysis

Trends emerging needs: when/how science/SS; standards-based report cards, Expository reading-writing all content areas, mathematical processes

continued iisd constituent district status implementation
Continued - IISD Constituent District Status Implementation

Next steps reported: need a plan, need to refine plans, need emphasis on expository writing/reading, need emphasis on mathematical processes, need to deal with science/SS in context of CCSS

IISD Assistance Requested: focus, nuts & bolts processes, line up PD w/emerging needs.
