2 M EQUON -T HIENSVILLE S CHOOL D ISTRICT M ATH I NTERVENTIONIST T RAINING K ICK - OFF August 19, 2013 K-5 August 21, The RtI Process for Math Getting Started!

3 T ODAY ’ S F ORECAST Deepen our understanding of RTI for Mathematics Differentiation vs Intervention Current RtI Research and Recommendations for mathematics RtI and CCSSM Connections Understand the MTSD Tier 2 RtI Process

4 Intervention vs. Differentiation This can be considered either… a brief primer or a brief review.

5 D IFFERENTIATION VS I NTERVENTION : A Q UICK R EVIEW Quick Write Intervention... What is it? When do you intervene? How does an intervention look like? How might interventions for reading and math be similar? How might they differ? Share your thinking with your partner. Is intervention the same as differentiation?

6 Differentiation Focus is on the key concepts students need to be proficient at their current grade level/content area course Supports the management of “unfinished business” from previous grades A component of high quality Tier I Universal Instruction Intervention Focus is on specific foundational math concepts, that a student needs in order to become proficient with the grade level curriculum Addresses “unfinished business” from previous grades Provided in addition to Tier I instruction

7 W HEN MIGHT I INTERVENE ? T IER II The data suggest a student needs instruction IN ADDITION to Tier I Universal Instruction because he or she: -Is lagging behind the established grade level/district benchmarks -Is not responding appropriately to Tier 1 instruction -Is at risk for academic failure

8 T IER II AND III I NTERVENTION OR E XTENSION Intervention Focus is on specific foundational concepts that a student needs in order to become successful with the grade level curriculum Generally provided in addition to Tier I instruction Critical thinking and problem solving are key. Extension Focus is on knowledge and skills that enable student to stretch grade- level work in deeper directions, not expose to later grades’ topics. Critical thinking and non-routine problem solving are key.

9 Tier 1 Core Math Program All Students Universal Screening ( 3-4 times per year) Effective with a Majority of Students Differentiation/Extra Support Expected Before Moving to Tier II Example RtI Model for Math (Intervention Focus) Tier II – Selected 15% of Students Tier III – Intensive 5% of Students Tier I - Universal Instruction 80% of Students Tier II Small Group Instruction Time in Addition to Tier I Linked to Student Needs Aligned to Tier I Instruction Progress Monitoring (1-4 times per month) Tier III 1-3 Students Maximum Laser Focus on Specific Need Diagnostic Assessment Weekly Progress Monitoring Greater Frequency and Duration

10 L EARNING P ARTNER C HECK - IN 1. Make eye-contact with someone across the room. 2. Find each other and share your understanding of differentiation and intervention. 3. Surface any questions you may have so far regarding how they are different.

11 Current Research For RTI in Mathematics Says…

12 C ORE B ELIEF S YSTEM – R T I M ATH S PECIFIC ① All students can be mathematically proficient ② All students need a high-quality mathematics program ③ Effective mathematics programs must teach conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and problem solving skills. ④ Effective instruction matters and significantly impacts student learning. Each is vital to a successful RtI model Each belief must be held by all teachers delivering math interventions We will revisit each throughout our work together.

13 K EY T HEMES OF C URRENT RESEARCH IN RTI IN M ATHEMATICS An effective math program (all tiers) should adequately develop mathematical proficiency in all students. Early screening for at-risk status, particularly in primary grades, is key. Incorporating a variety of instructional strategies to meet needs of struggling students is essential in all tiers. Increased instructional time and supports for struggling learners in both Tier 1 and Tier 2 is essential.

14 K EY F INDINGS : M AJOR A REAS OF C ONCERN Devastating long-term impact of entering first grade with weak knowledge of number concepts and operation sense was a consistent finding in longitudinal research. Devastating effects of poor preparation for algebra including weak knowledge of fractions, percentages, decimals and proportional reasoning and/or a limited ability to solve word problems. Most assessments used are based on older standards with a heavy emphasis on computation.

15 E MERGING K EY RESEARCH T HEMES FOR RTI & MATHEMATICS Increased instructional time in addition to core mathematics taught in Tier 1. Small-group instruction utilized in all tiers Explicit methods of instruction (e.g., C  R  A, Talk Moves) Use of concrete and pictorial representations to facilitate conceptual understanding Strategy instruction for problem solving (e.g., Think Aloud) Focus on problem solving skills (not just computation) Careful alignment of instruction and content in Tier 1 and Tier 2 Screening and progress monitoring to target deficit areas Source: Adapted from Newman-Gonchar, R., Clarke, B., & Gersten r. (2009). A summary of nine key studies: Multitier intervention and response to interventions for students struggling in mathematics.Retrieved from

16 L EARNING P ARTNER CHECK - IN Check in with a table partner… Share a research idea that matches what you have always thought or believed about successful math instruction or intervention. Share a research idea that was “new to you” or that you wish to learn more about.

19 IES P RACTICE G UIDE W HAT W ORKS C LEARINGHOUSE (WWC) “The goal of this practice guide is to formulate specific and coherent evidence-based recommendations for use by educators addressing the challenge of reducing the number of children who struggle with mathematics by using “response to intervention” (RtI) as a means of both identifying students who need more help and providing these students with high-quality interventions.” -- Back of front cover of IES Guide

21 W HAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS IES G UIDE ? H OW MIGHT THE IDEAS SHARED BENEFIT US ? Focused Reading ✓ Answers to “What is the purpose of this IES Guide?” + Answers to “How might this guide help us as we implement RtI for mathematics. ImportantIntroduction – p. 1 Assisting Students Struggling with Mathematics: Response to Intervention Summary of Recommendations  First 5 paragraphs p. 5 and p. 7

22 J IGSAW OF RECOMMENDATIONS Read and highlight Recommendation 2 With your group come to consensus on 3-4 important points you would like to share with the group. Reflecting on our chart…name a grade, grade band, or K-8 initiative in math that we have been working on, studying, or have in place that supports the different recommendations. Repeat this process for Recommendation 3

23 H OW DOES MTSD MEASURE ? As we reflect on our charts for Recommendation 2 and Recommendation 3, create a statement that describes MTSD’s alignment with the IES K-8 RtI Recommendations?

26 M ATHEMATICAL P RIORITIES GradePriorities in Support of Rich Instruction and Expectations of Fluency and Conceptual Understanding K-2 (1) Addition and subtraction – concepts, skills and problem solving. (2) Place value 3-5 (1) Multiplication and division of whole numbers– concepts, skills, and problem solving (2) Fractions – concepts, skills, and problem solving 6 (1) Ratios and proportional reasoning (2) Early Expressions and Equations 7 (1) Ratios and proportional reasoning (2) Arithmetic of rational numbers 8 Linear algebra and linear functions

27 W HAT THE CCSSM M EANS … Rich Instruction- “teachers focus deeply on the major work of each grade, so that students can gain strong foundations: solid understanding, high degree of procedural skill and fluency, ability to apply the math they know to solve problems inside and outside of the math classroom” Conceptual Understanding – “development of key concepts so that students are able to see math as more than a set of mnemonics or discrete procedures” Expectations of Fluency- builds over time, flexible strategies, accurate, and efficient “It is not a matter of instilling facts divorced of their meanings, but rather as an outcome of multiyear process that heavily involves the interplay of practice and reasoning.” Progressions p.19
