1 Riding the Waves with RtI By: Rhonda Back, RtI Director of Bath County Schools

2 An anchor is to a ship as RtI is to___________________

3 RtI Voyage in Bath County  First year of implementation of an approved District Plan under our belts – some smooth sailing but some huge waves also  Received feedback from principals, teachers, community members of how to improve our plan – still not proficient by no means but we are sailing in that direction  Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but come through continuous struggle- Martin Luther King, Jr.  Be patient- real change takes time

4 “I Can” statements for today’s RtI session: I Can………… Explain what RtI is to my peers and others Explain why it is important for our students and our school community Explain what is expected of me in implementing RtI Familiarize myself with the process and new forms

5 5 Source: Wright, J. (2005, Summer). Five interventions that work. NAESP Leadership Compass, 2(4) pp.1,6. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why? “The quality of a school as a learning community can be measured by how effectively it addresses the needs of struggling students.” --Wright (2005)

6 Visible Learning- John Hattie What works best in education? John Hattie developed a way of ranking various influences in different meta-analyses according to their effect sizes. In his ground-breaking study “Visible Learning” he ranked those influences which are related to learning outcomes from very positive effects to very negative effects on student achievement. Hattie found that the average effect size of all the interventions he studied was Therefore he decided to judge the success of influences relative to this ‘hinge point’Visible Learning Hattie, determined that “for students moving from one year to the next, the average effect size is 0.40.”Meaning they will grow 1 year in 1 year’s time if they are engaged in strategies that have an effect size of 0.40 and above

10 What is RTI?  "RtI is the practice of providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals and applying child response data to important educational decisions." (NASDSE 2006)

11  The system of interventions is flexible and emphasizes returning students to the regular instructional program as quickly as possible; students receive interventions only when they are needed and for the particular [area] in which they need assistance.  Pg. 8, Pyramid Response to Intervention by Buffum, Mattos and Weber

12 Bath County System of Interventions Uses the Kentucky System of Interventions (KSI) as a framework for providing systematic, comprehensive services to address academic and behavioral needs for all students, enrolled in their schools.

13 from Pyramid Response to Intervention Forward, by Richard DeFour (pg. xv-xvi) “If schools are to become more effective in helping ALL students learn at high levels, RTI will require a deep cultural change that must occur.”

14 4 Key Questions  What exactly do we expect all students to learn?  How will we know if and when they’ve learned it?  How will we respond when some students don’t learn?  How will we respond when some students have already learned? (DuFour, DuFour, Eaker & Many, 2006)

15 Core Principles of BCSI BCSI/RtI Use All Available Resources Monitor Classroom Performance Universal Screening Multi- Tier Delivery Research-Based Instruction Data Based Decisions Progress Monitoring Fidelity of Implementation Family Involvement Professional Learning

16 Core/Universal – Tier 1  KCAS  Performance Level Descriptions  Assessment data (KPREP, local, MAP)  Differentiated instruction  Researched-base instructional strategies (CHETL, 21st Century,  7 Characteristics of Primary)  Formative assessment strategies  Collaboration of educators, parents, community  Vision and Hearing Screening  School-based behavioral programs Tier % Tier % Tier %

17 Supplemental – Tier 2 Diagnostic and Screening Tools More specific, intense instruction Flexible grouping Support of other staff and Student Proficiency Teams Frequent Progress Monitoring + ALL Tier 1 Services Tier % Tier % Tier %

18 Intensive – Tier 3  Small Group  More specific, intense instruction  Work with Interventionist  Very Frequent Progress Monitoring  +All Tier 1 and Tier 2 instruction Tier % Tier % Tier %

19 Instruction Learning is not always pleasurable and easy; it requires over-learning at certain points, spiraling up and down the knowledge continuum, and building a working relationship with others in grappling with challenging tasks. -J. Hattie

20 Teacher contributions to student learning include: quality of teaching (as perceived by the students) teacher expectations fixed vs. growth mindset teacher openness classroom climate focus on teacher clarity in success criteria fostering of effort engagement of all students

21 Great teachers are the key. Research shows, in fact, that the single most important factor in improving student achievement is great teaching. ~ Waiting for Superman, Leslie Chilcott, pg. 53

22 How do I as a teacher help every student everyday learn, grow and feel like he or she is worthy? What are some areas I need to develop?

23 How WE Steer our Boat for RtI Success Administer Universal Screener and/or Other Assessments Establish a School Team to Examine Core Instruction Establish Student Team(s) to Develop and Implement Student Proficiency Plans Teams Use the Problem Solving Process Examine and Utilize Evidence-Based Interventions Analyze Data Frequently Develop Plans and Continue Cycle Celebrate Success

24 Using the Compass of RtI (Forms) Vision and Hearing Speech/Language Motor Student Proficiency Plans (Team Meetings and Plan Forms) Reading Summary Sheets Math Summary Sheets

25 In the most exceptional schools where new ways of pursuing excellence are being developed, there is a real effort to help every child achieve his potential. All kids can, and must, learn. ~ Waiting for Superman, Leslie Chilcott, pg. 58

26 Web is full of RtI Intervention Strategies and Ideas: Pinterest Teachers Pay Teachers Google - RtI Intervention Lists Resources in BCSI Plan Guide The question is not, “Is it possible to educate all children well?” but rather, “Do we want to do it badly enough?”

27  We can, whenever and wherever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us. We already know more than we need to do that. Whether or not we do it must finally depend on how we feel about the fact that we haven't so far." ~ Ronald Edmonds, Harvard University Do you agree or disagree? Why??
