Many educators expect students to return this fall with an increased depth and range of social-emotional behavior (SEB) and academic needs. More than ever, it will be important for educators to focus first on the universal needs of all students to allow for targeted resources to have the best possible effect. Doing so will ensure educators are able to recover lost learning and accelerate new learning for all, without relying solely on specialized resources in Tier 2 and Tier 3 supports.

Watch Sarah Brown, Ph.D., Executive Director of Professional Learning at Illuminate Education, in an edWebinar to deepen your understanding of the universal tier—and increase your confidence in identifying universal academic and SEB needs and monitoring the effectiveness of your Tier 1 efforts.

In this session, learn:

  • Actionable methods for using intervention and instruction to support Tier 1 student needs
  • Strategies for using data to evaluate the effectiveness of Tier 1 instruction and intervention, so you can make the right adjustments throughout the year
  • Research-based methods for increasing student engagement in the universal tier with both remote and onsite learners

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, assessment coordinators and specialists, MTSS coordinators, school psychologists, data analysts, and instructional coaches.
