Large-scale meta-analyses (Hattie, 2009; Marzano & DuFour 2011) have concluded the key to accelerating student achievement is figuring out how to significantly improve typical daily instruction across the school. RTI/MTSS can potentially be the vehicle for this improvement IF leaders grasp the imperative of focusing squarely on improving core or Tier 1 instruction. This seminar will unpack key research supported practices found to improve academioc literacy (reading/writing/speaking/ listening/thinking) across all content areas including electives. Participants will experience concrete example strategies, critique unscripted classroom videos, engage in learn- by-doing simulations and explore free on-line resources. Major focus areas will include how to increase student engagement, build academic language/ vocabulary, and develop critical thinking and comprehension skills. Participants are encouraged to attend in school-based teams to maximize effective implementation.
