In this webinar, Drs. Kim St. Martin and Sharon Vaughn highlight some key essential practices presented in Intensifying Literacy Instruction: Essential Practices Considerations and will reflect on considerations for implementation. Drs. St. Martin and Vaughn focus on ways educators and educational leaders can increase their capacity to develop skilled readers and writers, identify critical dimensions for designing intervention platforms as the foundation for effective instruction, and adapt interventions to increase the instructional intensity.
NCII partnered with Project STAIR (Supporting Teaching of Algebra: Individual Readiness) to host a series of three webinars focused on implementing data-based individualization (DBI) with a focus on mathematics during COVID-19 restrictions.
In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Powell an Associate Professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Texas at Austin highlights freely available tools and resources that can help educators consider a scope and sequence for math skills, assessment and intervention practices, instructional delivery, concepts and procedures for whole and rational numbers, intensification considerations, and more. The webinar reviews the content available from the Intensive Intervention Math Course Content. The course content consists of eight modules covering a range of math related topics. Each module includes video lessons, activities, knowledge checks, practice-based opportunities, coaching materials and other resources.
In this webinar, Meagan Walsh, M.Ed. demonstrates how the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity can support educators in systematically selecting and modifying intensive literacy interventions based on student need. After providing a brief overview of the dimensions for evaluating and building intervention intensity, she shares a detailed case study illustrating how a teacher uses the taxonomy to provide data-based individualized instruction in reading comprehension.
In this webinar, held April 3, 2018, Drs. Amelia Malone and Lynn Fuchs introduce the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity as a method for systematically selecting an intensive intervention and guide teachers through modifying the intervention based on student need.
This webinar, presented by Dr. Erica Lembke, Nicole Bucka, and Dr. Gail Chan, discusses the integrated relationship between academics and behavior, reviews a case study example using DBI to provide individualized integrated academic and behavioral support based on student need, and shares behavioral strategies intended to support teachers working with students with primary academic deficits and challenging behaviors.
This webinar, sponsored by the NCII and National Center on Systemic Improvement (NCSI) and presented by Drs. Russell Gersten, Sarah Powell, and Robin Finelli Schumacher, discusses 1) the importance of fractions instruction and typical challenges faced by students, 2) share recommendations for fractions instruction, and 3) provide considerations for supporting students within secondary or Tier 2 and intensive intervention.
This webinar, presented by Dr. Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds, provides an overview of the Center’s approach to providing intensive interventions: the data-based individualization process, or DBI, in academics.
In this webinar, Dr. Steve Graham shares an evidence-based framework for providing effective writing instruction including a variety of techniques that teachers can use today to improve their students’ writing.
This webinar, led by Dr. Russell Gersten, provided an overview of the research related to RTI and mathematics and described specific guidelines for implementation for grades K-7. The topics discussed included effective instructional practices for interventions, strategies for screening and progress monitoring, and criteria to think about when selecting intervention curricula. The webinar also offered a candid appraisal of the quality and quantity of research on these topics.
