3 3 Problem Solving Process Problem Identification & Problem Analysis Strategy/ Intervention Design Strategy/ Intervention Implementation Strategy/ Intervention Evaluation Follow-up and Re-design Gravois, IC Teams, 2008
4 4 Problem Solving Process Problem Identification & Problem Analysis Strategy/ Intervention Design Academic: Conducted under instructionally matched conditions Effective instructional practices (modeling, repetition, corrective feedback, incentives for improvement) Plan for progress monitoring Behavior: Conducted under instructionally matched conditions Application of researched behavior principles Contingency management Plan for progress monitoring Gravois, IC Teams, 2008
5 5 Problem Solving Process Problem Identification & Problem Analysis Strategy/ Intervention Design Strategy/ Intervention Implementation Implementation integrity must be considered Gravois, IC Teams, 2008
6 6 Problem Solving Process Problem Identification & Problem Analysis Strategy/ Intervention Design Strategy/ Intervention Implementation Strategy/ Intervention Evaluation Charting and graphing of data (at least weekly) Continued comparison of data with baseline and goals Gravois, IC Teams, 2008
7 7 Problem Solving Process Problem Identification & Problem Analysis Strategy/ Intervention Design Strategy/ Intervention Implementation Strategy/ Intervention Evaluation Follow-up and Re-design - Recognition that refinement and tweaking are necessary parts of effective problem solving Gravois, IC Teams, 2008
8 Problem Solving Continues with Guiding Questions 1. Is the core program sufficient? 2. If the core program is not sufficient, why isnt it? 3. How will needs identified in the core be addressed? 4. How will the effectiveness and efficiency of the core be monitored over time? 5. Have improvements to the core been effective? Sharon Kurns, Heartland Area Education Agency 11
9 Problem Solving Continues with Guiding Questions 6. For which students is the core program not sufficient and why? 7. What specific strategic and intensive instruction/intervention is needed? 8. Will the instruction/intervention be developed and selected through assessment, then matched with the function of target academic or behavior of each student? 9. How will strategic and intensive instruction/intervention be delivered? 10. How will effectiveness of strategic and intensive instruction/intervention be monitored? Sharon Kurns, Heartland Area Education Agency 11
10 Intervention Design What is our plan to address the problem ? What is the desired outcome of the intervention? What are we going to do to achieve that outcome? How will we know if the plan is working? How will we know if the plan is being implemented as intended? What do we do if the plan works or does not work? Sharon Kurns, Kristi Upah & Sandy Nelson, Heartland Area Education Agency 11
11 Intervention Progress Monitoring Is the student making sufficient progress given the intervention? Are the supports in place to carry out the measurement strategy? How will data be displayed? Are data being collected frequently and regularly? Is the intervention creating the desired outcomes? What changes might need to be made to the intervention? Sharon Kurns and Kristi Upah, Heartland Area Education Agency 11
12 Implementation Integrity Is the intervention being implemented as planned? What are the essential elements of the intervention? What is the acceptable level of performance? Or how will we know if the intervention is being implemented with integrity? How will integrity data be collected? Is integrity data being collected as planned? How will the integrity data be analyzed? Are adjustments to implementation necessary? (Make Decision) Alecia Rahn and Sharon Kurns, Heartland Area Education Agency 11
13 Evaluation Decisions Has the intervention been successful? Should the intervention be evaluated? Is the student making progress at an expected rate? Is the students performance significantly discrepant from peers or expectations? What are the students instructional needs? What are the students ongoing instructional needs and what resources will be needed to meet them? (Make the decision.)

15 Module 4 Overview Juley Harper ELA Education Associate Delaware Department of Education
16 RTI makes me feel like… Because…
17 A mistake we often make in education… plan the curriculum materials very carefully arrange all the instructional materials open the doors of the school and then… find, to our dismay, that theyve sent us the wrong kids. ANON
18 An Intervention Is NOT Moving the student to another seat Referring the student to special education Adjusting the level of questions on an assessment Teaching the core curriculum Retaining the student Simply observing the student in the classroom Suspending the student Allowing the student to use a calculator Information based on research from Karen Burggraf, MEd and Arden Sotomayor, MEd, 2007
19 An Intervention IS A scientifically researched-based program used IN ADDITION to the core curriculum to help students with significant deficits reach proficiency. Information based on research from Karen Burggraf, MEd and Arden Sotomayor, MEd, 2007
20 Effective Interventions Why must we work at the school level to provide effective interventions? Children enter school with diverse instructional needs (e.g., talent, preparation for learning, oral language knowledge and abilities, motivation) Some children require instruction 4 or 5 times more intense than others The classroom teacher, alone, may not be able to provide sufficiently powerful instruction to meet the needs of all students Based on Research completed by the Florida Center for Reading Research, Elizabeth Crawford and Joseph Torgeson, 2006
21 Effective Intervention Characteristics They… increase the intensity of instruction increase instructional time decrease number of children in instructional group improve quality of instruction provide many opportunities for pre-teaching, re- teaching, review, and supervised practice are focused carefully on the most essential learning needs of the students provide instruction that is both EXPLICIT and SYSTEMATIC Based on Research completed by the Florida Center for Reading Research, Elizabeth Crawford and Joseph Torgeson, 2006
22 Common Traits of Successful Schools 1. Strong Leadership 2. Positive Belief and Teacher Dedication 3. Data Utilization and Analysis 4. Effective Scheduling 5. Professional Development 6. Scientifically-Based Intervention Programs 7. Parental Involvement Based on Research completed by the Florida Center for Reading Research, Elizabeth Crawford and Joseph Torgeson, 2006
23 Sophistication of Knowledge
24 RTI Interventions Behavior Brian Touchette Delaware Department of Education
25 Positive Behavior Support All Students in the School Intensive, Individual Interventions Individual Students Assessment-based Intense, durable procedures Targeted Group Interventions Some students (at-risk) High efficiency Rapid response School-wide Interventions All settings, all students Preventive, proactive Intensive academic support School based adult mentors Intensive social skills training Individualized function based behavior support plans Parent training and collaboration Multi-agency collaboration (wrap around) Alternatives to suspension and expulsion Intensive social skills training and support Self-management programs School-based adult mentors (check-in) Increased academic support & practice Alternatives to school suspension Effective academic support Teaching social skills Teaching school-wide expectations Active supervision in common areas Positive reinforcement for all Firm fair, corrective discipline Effective Classroom management
26 If: >40% of students received 1+ODR >2.5 ODR per student Then: Need to consider modifying universal supports to improve overall system (teach, precorrect, & positively reinforce expected behaviors) If: >60% of referrals come from classroom >50% of ODR come from <10% of classrooms Then:Need to consider enhancing universal or targeted classroom management practices (examine academic engagement & success; teacher, pre-correct for, & positively reinforce expected classroom behavior & routines If: >35% of referrals come from non-classroom settings >15% of students referred from non-classroom settings Then: Need to consider enhancing universal behavior management practices (teach, precorrect for, & positively reinforce behavior & routines; increase active supervision in non-classroom settings (move, scan, interact) Sugai, 2004 Interventions at Tier 1
27 Functional Assessment Pathway Setting Event Triggering Event or Antecedent Problem Behavior Maintaining Consequence THE FUNCTION Get something Get away from Something
Example of Behavioral Pathway Setting Event Antecedent Behavior Consequence Alone for Given Math Profanity Gets out of 30+ minutes or other task disruption completing work Start of summary: When given math worksheets & other assignments, Caesar does not do his work, he uses profanity & disrupts lessons, especially, when he has worked alone for 30 minutes without peer contact. His work does not get completed, & he avoids teachers requests.
29 Characteristics of quality interventions Seen as feasible and acceptable Involve progress monitoring, fidelity checks Based on collaboration with family Based on effective intervention principles (evidence-based) Address prevention, teaching, and consequences
30 Characteristics of Quality Interventions Preventive Make the behavior irrelevant. Change the environment so its not necessary Teaching – make the behavior inefficient Teach a replacement skill that works better Function/Consequence Make the behavior ineffective. Remove reinforcement of the problem behavior. Maximize reinforcement of the replacement behavior Academic Considerations
31 Targeted Interventions: Some examples Skill Building Academic Organizational Social Anger management Problem-solving and conflict resolution Coping strategies Support/relationship Building Check In programs Mentoring (with adults or peers) Peer tutoring (with target student as tutor) Cooperative learning activities Breakfast/lunch clubs Student leadership opportunities
33 Universal Screening Workshop – April 23 rd This training is designed to help you IDENTIFY students who may need additional mental health/behavioral intervention. It is not designed to help you provide these services. Ask teams the following questions: Do you believe that your SW system is in place and functioning well (that is, fewer than 20% of kids in the upper tiers & data are being used effectively to modify the SW program) If so, do you feel you have a good problem solving structure in place when kids are identified as having social emotional and behavior problems? If so, do you feel there are mental health services available either in school or in your local community? If so, you may be ready to consider how you are identifying kids in need and whether you are reaching them as quickly and efficiently as possible…this training is for you.

45 Math Interventions An intervention can be thought of as a plan of action on behalf of students who are struggling or who are being considered for acceleration. The term intervention usually indicates that the students difficulties or particular strengths are in the early stages, when they can be identified and possibly addressed before they become a concern. In contrast, remediation is often applied to actions taken to reverse established patterns of achievement by students who are already struggling or failing and need intensive and long-term assistance. (NCTM) Both are a part of Response to Intervention
46 Resources How do we as a teacher, school, district, state, develop math intervention strategies when even the experts havent developed a multitude of effective prescriptive intervention strategies?
48 Effective Intervention Is a Problem- Solving Process We invite you to participate in the following two problem-solving strategies that help teachers to build a library of interventions Whole class – pedagogical intervention Individualized – item/content specific intervention
Intervention Research is a Process of Inquiry
50 Identify a Problem Formulate a Question Develop Strategies Based on Your Question Develop a Plan for Data Collection Gather and Analyze the Data Reflect on the Results Plan for the Next Action Next Steps
My students perform well during classroom instruction but seem to fall apart on exams such as the DSTP or NAEP. They behave as if they have never seen a problem with this mathematical content and many of them even leave answers blank. Small Group Activity- Use the Intervention Research Process of Inquiry to: 1. Formulate a question 2. Develop Strategies based on the question 3. Develop a plan for data collection
52 Fifth Grade Sturdy paper plates come in packages of 8. How many packages of plates should the Yum Yum Deli supply so that each of the 527 people can have one plate? Assessment purpose for this item: 1. Know what to do with the remainder. 2. Compute Correctly 3. Recognize that division is needed to solve this problem.
53 Sorting Activity Sort the papers A through M into three piles. Need immediate intervention Okay for Now No intervention needed Record your notes regarding anything you see that may be getting in the way of successfully completing the problem ( Sorting Activity Handout ). Share your notes and carry out a group discussion regarding possible intervention strategies with one note taker in the group (Intervention Worksheet Handout ). Share one intervention with the entire room.
54 Identify a Problem Formulate a Question Develop Strategies Based on Your Question Develop a Plan for Data Collection Gather and Analyze the Data Reflect on the Results Plan for the Next Action Next Steps
55 The core purpose of professional development should be the continuous improvement of professional practice. Thomas R. Corcoran, 1998
56 Administrators Have a Key Role Make improving instructional practice and shared accountability for student achievement high priorities. Recognize, value, and promote research-based effective instructional strategies and differentiated interventions. Expect all faculty to engage in research-based effective instructional strategies and differentiated interventions. Create learning communities that support teachers as they work to transform/improve instructional practice and develop interventions. Provide time and guidance for collegial work.
57 School-Based Teacher Leaders Role Create a safe environment for others to share their professional practices Take the lead in sharing your professional practice and develop an intervention. Maintain a stance of inquiryI wonder... Listen
58 Teachers Have a Role Actively contribute to the creation of a safe environment for others to share their professional practices Participate in the sharing of professional practice and be willing to implement and experiment with a variety of proposed interventions Record and share feedback on your implementation of interventions Maintain a stance of inquiryI wonder... Listen
59 The key to long-term improvement [in teaching] is to figure out how to generate, accumulate, and share professional knowledge. The Teaching Gap
61 Choosing and Using Reading Interventions Sharon Walpole, Ph.D. University of Delaware
62 Overview Introduce the Cognitive Model of Reading Assessment Define characteristics of interventions that work Compare and contrast intervention strategies and intervention programs Provide access to public program reviews Examine a comprehensive content-analysis system for coordinating choices for your district or school
64 What is comprehension? Comprehension is understanding what is heard or read. Comprehension of any text involves creation of an integrated and coherent representation of the text. Comprehension may or may not lead to memory for text or text ideas.
65 RANDs heuristic for thinking about reading comprehension
66 Stage models of reading When children are acquiring literacy – developing the skills necessary for reading comprehension – they tend to move through stages in which their focus is very different. All along, during each stage, they are developing oral language skills. Although our goal is increased comprehension, at times we must address lower-level skills. Comprehension Oral Language Fluency Alphabetic Principle Phonemic Awareness
67 This text is currently being revised; the Cognitive Model is part of the revision.
The Cognitive Model Phonological Awareness Decoding and Sight Word Knowledge Print Concepts Fluency in Context Automatic Word Recognition Reading Comprehension Language Comprehension Strategic Knowledge General Purposes for Reading Specific Purposes for Reading Knowledge of Strategies for Reading Vocabulary Knowledge Background Knowledge Knowledge of Text and Sentence Structures
69 Assessment-Driven Decisions Give screening test in a given area (and in more basic areas if need be) If screening identifies a problem area, give a diagnostic test to determine skill needs Give progress monitoring tests periodically to determine impact of targeted instruction Identify programs or strategies that specifically address the skill needs
70 The concept of three tiers of instruction The 3-tier model (University of Texas System/Texas Education Agency, 2005) is a general framework and just a framework for explaining how any research-based program can be executed in a school.
71 Tier I: Core Grade-Level Reading Instruction 1. A core reading program grounded in scientifically based reading research 2. Benchmark testing of all students to determine instructional needs at least three times per year (fall, winter, and spring) 3. Ongoing professional development to provide teachers with the necessary tools to ensure every student receives quality reading instruction
72 Tier II: Supplemental Instruction For some students, core grade-level reading instruction is not enough. Tier II is designed to meet the needs of these students by providing them with additional small-group reading instruction daily.
73 Tier III: Instruction for Intensive Intervention A small percentage of students require more support in acquiring vital reading skills than Tier II instruction can provide. For these students, Tier III provides instruction that is more explicit, more intensive, and specifically designed to meet their individual needs.

78 Comprehensive Early Interventions A recent review of extensive interventions (those with at least 100 sessions) compared 12 studies. The report provides descriptions, effect sizes, and cost estimates. archterms=extensive+reading+interventionsh
79 For temporary, targeted intervention efforts, avoid comprehensive solutions in favor of specialized ones.
Once I know what my focus is, how can I address it?
81 Effective interventions integrate three essential components: 1. Explicit, systematic content 2. Intensive instructional design 3. Reflexive instructional delivery Meyers, S. D. (2006). Evaluating the effectiveness of a kindergarten intervention program. Unpublished executive position paper, University of Delaware.
82 Explicit Content: Lesson Focus Phonemic Awareness Find the middle sounds in words. Word Recognition Learn a series of new letter sounds. Learn new consonant or vowel patterns. Read and spell words that you see all of the time. FluencyWork with words that you must read quickly. Read text repeatedly to increase rate.
83 Explicit Content: Teacher Modeling Phonemic Awareness Teachers use pictures, manipulatives, and hand signals to direct attention Word Recognition Teachers sound and blend words using standardized, repetitive procedures FluencyTeachers read to students or use choral or echo procedures to model fluent reading
84 Systematic Content Across lessons Words and texts are organized from easiest to hardest over a sequence of lessons Within lessons The teacher models, works with the students, and then has them work independently Across lessons There are planned repetitions of old items and opportunities to demonstrate and assess mastery
85 Intensive Instructional Designs GroupingSmaller groups are more intensive; interventions usually require homogeneous groups TimeTime on task, actually reading or writing or responding, is maximized; instruction is well organized OpportunityStudents respond chorally or in every pupil response format to maximize individual chances; teacher uses specific error correction procedures
86 Reflexive Instructional Designs Entry PointsData are used to decide where students should begin a lesson sequence Progress Monitoring There are procedures to monitor whether students are learning the specific items taught in the intervention Exit PointsThere is a definite, specific goal for mastery of the skill that is targeted in the intervention
Is it possible to do all this without commercial programs?
88 Nearly all vendors claim that their programs are scientifically based Scientifically-based programs Scientifically-based strategies The entire program, tested with random assignment and implemented with fidelity, yielded better outcomes compared with a control group The specific strategy, tested with random assignment and implemented with fidelity, yielded better outcomes compared with a control group Actually, very few programs meet these stringent tests; rather, most programs combine a series of scientifically based strategies
89 Scientifically-based programs BenefitsCosts The scope and sequence is already systematic There are scripts to keep instruction explicit After initial training, less planning time is needed Time and focus may be inconsistent with your needs The programs may be expensive There may be no way to allow multiple entry points
90 Scientifically-based strategies BenefitsCosts The instructional strategy is very specific to address one or two components of reading The skill can be measured repeatedly to test student response Strategies are published in research journals; you have to find them More planning time is needed to assemble materials You may not have adequate texts
91 What we have to avoid is continuing ineffective current practices. Serving our children requires that we adopt scientifically-based strategies and/or programs and that we monitor their effectiveness for each child.
92 Descriptions of Programs
94 Descriptions of Programs The Florida Center for Reading Research produces narrative descriptions of a variety of commercial programs. The descriptions include any available research evidence. fcrr.org
How could you inventory the strengths and weaknesses of your current programs?
100 The Oregon Reading First Center used to review and rate programs; those ratings have been deleted from the website and only the rating guides are available. Procedures for Reviewing Programs
101 The Oregon procedure includes items for analysis for K-3 intervention programs that could be very helpful to you.
102 Grouping structure Whole group Small group 1-on-1 Professional Development Total number of hours Time recommendations Minutes per day Days per week Number of sessions Materials Provided Created by teacher Interventionist Qualifications Certified teacher Paraprofessional Other Total Cost Estimate
103 Instructional Design and Emphasis 1. Introduces a manageable amount of information and objectives within a lesson. 2. Provides sufficient emphasis on high-priority skills and strategies 3. Provides sufficient modeled examples prior to learner practice. 4. Includes sufficient opportunities for student responses.
104 Instructional Design and Emphasis 5. Structures adequate practice and review for mastery of new skill/strategy 6. Provides specific guidance for corrective feedback. 7. Includes specific recommendation or guidance for reteaching.
105 Instructional Grouping 1. Includes a placement test or process that allows students to start at different entry points in the materials depending on student performance. 2. Provides recommendations on group size and range of performance within groups. 3. Recommends and accommodates flexible groupings to maximize student learning.
106 Instructional Assessment 1. Allows teachers to determine the effectiveness of instruction by conducting frequent and ongoing assessment checkpoints on critical skills. 2. Includes assessment items for each major reading skill/strategy that can be used to determine what students need to learn and how much they have learned.
107 Instructional Assessment 3. Provides guidance to teachers on how to use assessment information to plan and differentiate instruction. 4. Monitors student progress at the end of each unit of instruction.

113 Review this content analysis procedure. What would you have to do to use this procedure to consider new programs and/or strategies?
If I have strategies and/or programs, how might I deliver them?
115 This public- access document provides reasonable suggestions for elementary school intervention design.
Scheduling Options Strongest Design Struggling students receive differentiated instruction from the classroom teacher PLUS additional intervention outside the reading block. Moderate Design Other adults push in to the classroom to provide intervention to struggling students while other students receive differentiated instruction. Weakest Design Classroom teacher provides instruction while other children engage in reading practice.
Who can provide these interventions?
118 Matching programs and strategies with personnel Highly scripted Highly responsive Smaller range of adults (e.g., certified specialists) Wider range of adults (e.g., paraprofessionals)
119 Matching programs and strategies with personnel Highly scripted Highly responsive Smaller range of adults (e.g., certified specialists) Wider range of adults (e.g., paraprofessionals)
120 Next Steps 1. Inventory your current resources. 2. Locate potential new resources. Center on Instruction Extensive Interventions? FCRR interventions? What Works Clearinghouse? 3. Use FCRR guide to analyze resources and understand their potential fit. 4. Consider your resources (time, personnel, and budget).
