Course Description:

This course will encourage the educator to evaluate the challenges facing struggling students in regards to the rigor of the common core standards.  The educator will learn how to use several tools for interventions and instruction to support the needs of struggling students. These tools include how to effectively teach using: background knowledge, research-based vocabulary instruction, a step-by-step approach to scaffolding instruction, and constructive and purposeful feedback.  Educators will also learn how to use multiple approaches for differentiating instruction and how to use key elements of effective instruction to have a greater impact on Tier I interventions and instruction. Finally, educators will gain an understanding of what can be done at the district and building level to impact learning for struggling students and unify learning for all students.
