Session Dates

Wednesday December 11, 2019 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

MTSS/RTI often doesn't make sense to secondary teachers. This session describes how secondary MTSS is different—from prevention for core content area instruction to screening and progress-monitoring practices—with attention to differentiating and intervening with students who need Treatment versus content area instruction and/or behavioral Support.


Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe why secondary MTSS lags behind elementary level.
  2. Differentiate between those students who receive Tier 2/3 "treatment" from those students who would receive "support" in their content area classes.
  3. Detail components of effective "treatment."
  4. Detail components of effective "support."
  5. Describe basic skills screening and progress monitoring practices.

Target Audience

Secondary content area and special education teachers, administrators, related services providers, or parents interested in improving secondary education.
