10. Arithmetic To Algebra Gap Interventions

Uploaded: January 27, 2014 |  0 Comments  | 

Algebra is considered a gateway to formal mathematics, quantitative work skills, and graduation. However, the abstractness of algebra makes learning difficult, especially for students who have not mastered elementary level mathematics. To exacerbate this difficulty, formal instruction of algebra has crept into early middle school. In this session, Dr. Witzel will demonstrate both instruction and intervention means for improving algebra preparation skills, such as rational numbers and equations.

This session will build participants background knowledge and skills to utilize the CDT to maximize student learning. Participants will gain knowledge and facility with CDT interactive maps, learning progression maps, and student and teacher data analysis templates. The presenters will focus on the rational for taking the CDT from the viewpoint of students and teachers. Support materials to engage in one-on-one conferencing and goal setting with students using CDT results will also be offered.

There are eleven handouts.

The Pennsylvania Safe Schools-Healthy Students Partnership, which is a four year project with over $2 million per year in federal funding, is designed to develop exemplary safe and supportive schools and communities in three local education agencies. This session will provide an overview of the partnership grant‘s goals and processes by which the goals will be met. As well as how the work of the demonstration sites stands to inform models for cross-systems collaboration for eventual installation and scale-up throughout Pennsylvania. The presenters will discuss how such collaborations between county partners and schools are consistent with the concepts of the Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF). Actual experiences of the 3 demonstration sites will be featured.

Date: 05/05/2016

Topic: Behavior

In this session, the presenter will explain the use of a Functional Transition Assessment Selection Matrix to assist in choosing assessments matching students’ most likely post-secondary goals. Representative assessments in the Functional Model will be reviewed and how to use the results to build the transition section will be discussed. In addition, the presenter will share a process to teach students how to: (1) understand transition assessment results; (2) select post-secondary and annual transition goals matching strengths and limits; and, (3) engage parents (or significant others) in a conversation to obtain their thoughts about students’ strengths, needs, and post-school goals. Last, a goal attainment process will be described where students learn to attain their annual transition goals as the means to help reach their post-secondary goals.

Topic: PDE Annual Conference

Students with problem behaviors continue to present challenges to educators. Intervention plans that are developed based on functional behavior assessment derived hypotheses have a wealth of empirical support proving their effectiveness in reducing problem behaviors and increasing appropriate replacement behaviors. Dr. Iovannone will present a research-supported process to build function-based intervention plans that are feasible for implementing in typical elementary classroom settings. Participants will learn the process steps, view video examples, and obtain teacher-friendly tools used by school teams.

The State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) provides a framework for continuous improvement in educational outcomes for students with disabilities. The SPP/APR is built upon federally mandated indicators of compliance and performance. Each indicator includes baseline data, annual measurable and rigorous targets, and improvement activities. It is developed with significant input from the Pennsylvania Special Education Advisory Panel and other stakeholders. An additional new requirement of the SPP/APR is the State Systemic Improvement Plan (Indicator 17) built around a particular focus area. Pennsylvania worked in collaboration with stakeholders and the SEAP and identified improving school completion rates for students with disabilities as its focus area. This session will help participants become familiar with, and be able to discuss, research-based strategies to help students with disabilities stay in school and graduate with a high school diploma.

Topic: Response to Instruction & Intervention

During this session, participants will learn about Pennsylvania’s System of Care Partnership and their expansion efforts across the Commonwealth. The Pennsylvania System of Care Partnership is a comprehensive collaboration among child-serving systems (Education, Behavioral Health, Juvenile Justice, Children’s Services, and Drug and Alcohol) with youth and family leaders in equal partnership across the Commonwealth, to integrate the systems so that desired outcomes are achieved cost effectively through evidence-based practices and natural supports. The Pennsylvania System of Care Partnership focuses on 8-18 year olds, and their families, who have complex behavioral health challenges, along with involvement in the juvenile justice and/or child welfare systems and are in or at risk of out-of-home placement.
