The Individual in the System: How YOU make the RTI (Response to Intervention) machine work!
Data to Drive the RTI (Response to Intervention) Machine


Click to expand Session Descriptions

Individual teachers often lose focus of their role in broader educational systems and initiatives. The daily grind consumes our thoughts, our time, and our ability to innovate. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how the individual teacher serves as a critical component that makes the RtI machine operate. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of their relationship to each component of the RtI process, how the RtI machine should function in a school to benefit all students and how teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing can support their students without getting consumed by the RtI machine.
All systems require energy to continue to function and produce. Response to Intervention systems depend on data to serve as the fuel that keeps the system running. Engines run smoother when their fuel matches the engine design. RtI systems run smoother when the data that feeds the system matches the design. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how teachers can ensure they are collecting the right data to support their students within an RtI system. Attendees will learn how to discriminate between useful and useless data, how to take advantage of data to support their students and how to use data to communicate with other teachers and develop better teams.
