This resource is a tool designed to assist teachers with improving their ability to communicate their concerns about struggling students to all stakeholders. Also included are ideas and terminology that can be used to document any assistance already being provided in the classroom. By using these words/terms/phrases, you will be able to confidently articulate exactly what is happening in your classroom in a most professional way. Included in this offering are the following ideas to assist you with getting started:
• Overview defining differences between student modifications and accommodations
• Content/Material Interventions
• Instructional Interventions
• Organizational Interventions
• Assessment Interventions
• Behavioral Interventions
• Student Intervention Strategy Checklist
This easy reference tool empowers you to communicate your concerns about students struggling in your classroom specifically and comprehensively. The “Intervention Strategies” checklist (also provided) is an easy, convenient way to record those strategies you’ve already tried, and serves as documentation and/or “talking points” for meetings with parents and/or other stakeholders. It includes the above interventions, positive student qualities listing, and specific observable behaviors (i.e. class performance, social skills, disruptive behaviors).
This particular listing is only one part of a more comprehensive workshop presentation on RTI we created to prepare educators for meetings with parents, colleagues, student advocates, CST members, administrators, and any other professionals you must communicate with regarding struggling students.
