Teacher Education Program Curriculum
The content in the Curriculum Training modules is designed to provide educators with information across a variety of topics shown to be important in supporting middle school students. Middle school is an important time in a child’s education and intervention at this point can positively impact student trajectory toward later high-school graduation. As such, the Curriculum Training provides a framework for the Early Warning System and how to use the key data to direct interventions to support middle school students, especially those with emotional/behavioral concerns.
The Curriculum Training comprises 9 core modules (shown below), which provide evidence-based information on the framework and intervention areas. Each module contains a voice-over presentation, an information sheet, and additional resources. The modules may be completed sequentially or independently.
Module 1: Framework of the Early Warning System
Module 2: Direct Consultation Models
Module 3: Teams
Module 4: Effective Communication
Module 5: Data Analysis Team
Module 6: Data as the Focus
Module 7: The Teacher's Role in Implementing Intervention
Module 8: Cultural Competencies
Module 9: Attendance Data
