RtI, one of the most discussed initiatives in education today is still one of the most challenging for both classroom teachers and districts to implement successfully. A realistic & practical look at these two topics will help educators demystify RtI and differentiation for the mathematics classroom. There is not a single stakeholder in the educational system that has not been touched in some way by this initiative. Workshops include how RtI changes the way many educators have typically thought about how the standard educational system functions to meet the needs of every student. Included are strategies for supporting students when, where, and how they need it – rather than support that is based upon a schedule, calendar, or program. Taking a hard look at the implications for your classroom, school, and district as Rti is implemented will allow educators to see RtI from a practical, manageable perspective that can meet the needs of all students. Time will be spent looking at the Tier system and systematic framework. Identifying students who are nonresponsive to instruction and steps that can be taken to move them forward will be shared. Where does the gifted fit into this framework? will begin to be answered as well as recommendations to help teachers, principals, and school administrators identify students who need assistance and to address the needs of those students through focused interventions tailored to target specific mathematical proficiencies and concepts from K – grade 12.
