This session will focus on the basic provisions of IDEA, 504, FERPA, and ADA. The presenter will discuss the most common causes of litigation; how to ensure your school can deliver on the basics; the importance of planning—why what you do before the meeting is as important as the meeting itself; how to keep your IEP meetings positive, productive, and student-focused; what you should never say in an IEP meeting; authority; and, after the meeting—critical elements of follow-up.

Well-developed rubrics and scales can serve as a ‘window,’ helping students see clearly to what the teacher is requesting; they can also serve as a ‘mirror,’ supporting students in reflecting on what it is they already know and what it is they still need to learn. This session explores the creation and use of effective scales and rubrics in classroom assessment.

Topic: PDE Annual Conference

Reading comprehension tests abound, and educators are often faced with the challenge of explaining why students earn different scores on tests that purport to measure the same thing. Participants in this workshop will examine how differences in tests of reading comprehension can affect a student’s performance. We will look at how the publisher’s view of reading comprehension, text selection, and question-types all play a role in how students express their understanding of print. Participants will learn how to use this knowledge in order to design and interpret evaluations as a foundation for good instruction.

This session will address the basics of using assessment data to select research-based interventions for struggling, elementary-grade readers in the areas of phonological awareness, decoding, and fluency. Participants will learn how to create reader profiles, identify areas of instructional need, and evaluate patterns in the data as interventions are considered. Overall, the presentation will highlight how to effectively use assessment data to match student reading needs with interventions.

17. Literacy Data: What Stops Us From Addressing Reading Appropriately When We Know What to Do?


Training: PDE Conference
Presenter: Reid Lyon
Date: 02/10/2016

Topic:

Students with problem behaviors in secondary grades present significant 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 for middle and high school students. Dr. Iovannone will present a research-supported process to build function-based intervention plans that are feasible for implementing in middle and high school settings. Participants will learn the process steps, view examples of intervention plans developed by middle and high school teams, and obtain teacher-friendly tools used by school teams.

PBIS lends itself to meeting the demands of increased accountability with limited resources given the data-based nature of the framework. To that end, a general model of building and district-level program evaluation will be presented that highlights key fidelity and outcomes data teams should use in their effort to sustain and expand implementation. Specific examples and considerations of locally unique options will be reviewed.
