Through a tiered instructional framework, participants will be introduced to tools and research-based practices of effective progress monitoring at Tiers II and III of the RtI framework with a focus on ENL students. By evaluating and becoming knowledgeable about high quality, differentiated and scientifically based instructional practices, participants will learn how to scaffold learning strategy carefully, and with increased intensity using the tools to meet their ENL students at an assessed level of performance and rate of progress. Increased achievement and closed learning gaps are among the priorities when intervening strategically.

Course Outcomes:

  • Use the tools of tiered instructional models to close achievement gaps for Tiers II and III ENL students.
  • Plan with and apply the assessment procedures needed to progress monitor effectively in order to deliver effective and timely interventions for RtI and ENL students.
  • Plan and practice with various differentiated, scientifically based instructional technique to scaffold instruction with.
