    Essential Question: What do you do when they don't learn it?

    (1) Analyze universal screening data in order to interpret trends in core instruction and identify struggling learners who fall below cutoff scores. (2) Focus on problem-solving individual student needs with interventions aimed at increasing the learning rate of the struggling learner.


    Urgent Students: Begin Tier II interventions, log students' progress

    On Watch/Intervention students: Continue with Tier I interventions in classroom to ensure the students comprehend content


    Special Pops:  Continue to follow student IEP





    Together the grade level team reviewed the accommodations needed for the student.  The plan moving forward is to monitor the students' progress and documenting the level of TIER II intervention on the TIER II and TIER II Progress Monitoring Form.  Anecdotal Notes must be specific, Target Skills must include TEKS


    <<RtI Framework Cheat Sheet .pdf>>





     Review Intervention pyramids and RTI Framework to annotate steps being taken to support students

     Progress will be monitored and adjustments made when student growth is not closing the gap between current level and desired level at a sufficient rate




    Reading Intervention Pyramid

    Math Intervention Pyramid






    Behavior: Roundtable/Proposals

    ENVoy break down learning into 3 categories: The goal is to incorporate each one of the elements to maximize learning outcomes and minimize opportunities for behavior issues

    1. Visual: support with anchor charts, samples, illustrate expectations
    2. Audio: Allow students to engage in discourse by practicing the 10/2 model (10 minutes of direct instruction followed by 2 minutes of student conversation)
    3. Kinesthetic: In the gradual release model this component includes hands on activities in which the students are engaged in a final product, workstation, or left brain activity
