Today, many districts are implementing Tier 1 social-emotional behavior (SEB) curricula and/or Tier 2 or Tier 3 SEB interventions to support student learning and well-being. However, it can be challenging to determine whether SEB instruction and interventions are having a positive impact for learners. How can we tell if what we’re doing to support SEB growth is working for our students and schools? How do we know when—and how—to adjust SEB supports to make the most of instructional minutes and limited resources?
Watch Stephen Kilgus, Ph.D. and Nathaniel von der Embse Ph.D., NCSP explore how to monitor students’ growth and evaluate the effectiveness of SEB universal instruction and student interventions throughout the year, so you can amplify effective practices and guide impactful adjustments with confidence.
In this recorded edWebinar:
- Learn how to measure Tier 1 growth at the district, school, and class levels to determine effectiveness of universal SEB curricula and programs
- Explore how progress monitoring reveals the effectiveness of individual students’ SEB interventions and indicates whether to continue, fade, or adjust supports
- Unpack strategies for using data to inform when and where to adjust SEB instruction and interventions in order to maximize limited time, dollars, and professional development hours
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 school and district leaders, MTSS and RtI coordinators, PBIS coordinators, interventionists, school psychologists, student services leaders, and instructional coaches.
