Primary Speaker name:
Response to Intervention (RTI) and Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) are buzz words in education that recently have generated widespread interest in the early childhood field. Best understood as organizing frameworks, these approaches to tiered instruction are designed to help practitioners connect formative assessments with specific teaching and behavioral interventions and supports. Join us for an introduction to the newly released CONNECT Module 7 on Tiered Instruction. This session will demonstrate how videos, dilemmas, research summaries, activities, and other resources organized around the 5-step learning cycle™ can enhance your professional development efforts on tiered instruction focused on academic practices and social-emotional development. There will be opportunities to pose questions and exchange ideas as well as to find out how you can be more involved in the CONNECT community to support implementation of the CONNECT modules.
