Too often, districts implement a Response to Intervention (RTI) model without having a clear endpoint in mind. But if we don’t set specific, realistic, and measurable goals, how do we know whether an intervention is truly effective?
In this edWebinar, RTI expert and author Dr. Denise Gibbs will share practical advice for setting the right goals for intervention students—and for avoiding common mistakes. You’ll leave with a clear understanding of the two types of goals you should set, as well as:
- How to use goals as roadmaps for student learning
- When to adjust the pace of instruction to best meet student needs
- How to determine whether students are progressing appropriately
- What to look for when choosing an intervention program
Don’t miss this opportunity to get an expert’s insight on more effective goal setting—and more effective RTI—in your district. This edWebinar will be of particular benefit to kindergarten through high school teachers, school and district leaders, assessment directors and coordinators, RTI directors and coordinators, intervention specialists, and instructional coaches and specialists. There will be time for a Q&A session at the end of Dr. Gibbs’ presentation.
