    Literacy is one of the most critical skills in our lives. It is more than just being able to read and write. It provides the foundation for all learning and inquiry, personal development, and social responsibility within the world in which we live. For many students, literacy just doesn’t come easily. More students than ever are struggling with literacy and are being diagnosed with reading disabilities. A significant body of research over the past 35 years has demonstrated that when teachers use progress monitoring, students learn more, teacher decision making improves, and students become more aware of their own performance. With so much to lose and everything to gain, time is of the essence - We need to act and we need to act NOW.

    Join us for a candid webinar discussion:

    What does new research tell us about the importance of progress monitoring and the link to explicit instructional strategies?

    -How does DRA3 progress monitoring assess the reading behaviors of fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary of struggling students briefly between benchmarks?

    -How does the DRA3 online platform save instructional time by linking assessment to intervention?

    -What intervention resources are available in the DRA3 and how are they implemented?

    Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a prevention-based framework on which to develop tiered systems of (Academic) support, (Behavioral) support, & (Social Emotional Learning) support for all students. MTSS allows for a system level change on how we support students, which is driven by a data problem-solving model. Currently, the tiered-models most used for academics is Response to Intervention (RtI) and for behavior is Positive Interventions and Supports (PBIS). It is important to note that RtI is primarily used to identify students who are struggling academically so interventions can be matched to improve academic achievement. Further, MTSS also includes identifying high-quality instruction in order to prevent those academic struggles identified by the RtI process. So, it is important to establish preventative and intervention methods of instruction to improve student’s academic growth. This MTSS webinar series will include 4 blocks of learning opportunities provided over the 2019-2020 school year to facilitate the development of a Multi-Tiered problem-solving model for student behavior.
