12 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Overview of the Series, cont.’ Goal is to provide GA educators with increased knowledge of research and practice that can improve the implementation of RTI for ELLs. Target audience: SEA staff, district ESOL/Title III and RTI staff, school administrators, school ELL and RTI/SST specialists, teachers, faculty at IHEs, others with interest in RTI for all students. Brings together nationally recognized research experts and Georgia educators. 12

19 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Response to Intervention Process of aligning appropriate assessment with purposeful instruction for all students 19

20 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge What is the problem? What does the data show? Why is this happening? Curriculum Issue? Instructional Issue? Student Issue? What is our plan? What are we going to do? What interventions are needed? How will we measure success? Implement the plan Who will do what, where, when, and how often? How will fidelity of implementation be determined? Did the plan work? What does the data show? 20

21 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Tier 1 Non-negotiables Tier 1 STANDARDS-BASED CLASSROOM LEARNING: All students participate in general education learning that includes: –Universal screenings to target groups in need of specific instructional and/or behavioral support. –Implementation of the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) through a standards-based classroom structure. –Differentiation of instruction including fluid, flexible grouping, multiple means of learning, and demonstration of learning. –Progress monitoring of learning through multiple formative assessments. –Positive behavior supports. 21

22 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Tier 2 Non-negotiables NEEDS-BASED LEARNING: In addition to Tier 1, targeted students participate in learning that is different by including: –Standard intervention protocol process for identifying and providing research based interventions based on need and resources. –On-going progress monitoring to measure student response to intervention and guide decision-making. 22

23 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Tier 3 Non-negotiables SST-DRIVEN LEARNING: In addition to Tier 1 and Tier 2, targeted students participate in learning that is different by including: –Intensive, formalized problem solving to identify individual student needs. –Targeted research based interventions tailored to individual needs. –Frequent progress monitoring and analysis of student response to intervention(s). 23

24 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Tier 4 Non-negotiables SPECIALLY-DESIGNED LEARNING: In addition to Tiers 1 through 3, targeted students participate in : – Specialized programs, methodologies, or instructional deliveries. – Greater frequency of progress monitoring of student response to intervention(s). 24

25 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Georgia’s Focus on RTI Establishing a common understanding Supporting data driven decision making at the school and classroom level Ensuring a culture of providing immediate interventions for students Identifying and implementing interventions that impact achievement 25

26 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge Where ESOL services fit in the GA POI As a specialized delivery model, ESOL is a Tier 4 intervention. “ELL” is a temporary status. The greater the English skill, the lesser need for interventions. Result: In time, ELLs move DOWN the RTI pyramid. 26

27 Powering educational systems by translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge 27 Where ESOL services fit in the GA POI With the classroom teacher, ELLs should be receiving Tier 1 and/or 2 interventions. Results from Tier 2 interventions should be documented for progress monitoring purposes. Tier 4 ESOL services do not preclude SST services, if found to be necessary.
