A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As someone who works with Tier 3 reading students on a daily basis, I am excited by the progress we are making in meeting the needs of our most struggling students. I see the gains my students make, the confidence they build in themselves as readers and the ways in which practical interventions can effectively prevent our students from falling too far behind. It is my pleasure to share a wealth of outstanding ideas, tools and techniques to meet the needs of our most struggling readers at Tier 3.

We know that Response to Intervention (RTI) is a proven framework for enhancing academic achievement, designed as a preventative and intervention approach. As more schools begin implementing RTI models, it’s critical that we use accurate assessment data and research-based strategies to instruct our most struggling readers. High-quality Tier 3 interventions are essential to closing the gap for each of these students. Yet, matching intensive interventions to the unique needs of each student and focusing on the key components of reading instruction are often challenging tasks. For that reason, I have specifically designed this seminar to share the models, interventions, assessment techniques, and communication strategies I have found most successful in working with my Tier 3 struggling readers.

Throughout this fast-paced day I will provide you with practical, efficient, effective intervention strategies that can be implemented in any instructional setting. I will share with you manageable data collection systems that will help you keep track of your Tier 3 students’ progress. You will walk away with innovative ideas for structuring your tiered RTI interventions in ways that build collaboration and cooperation between teachers, focus on what each student needs and result in a remarkable degree of success for your struggling readers. I will show you how to increase all your students’ reading achievement at a school-wide level without reducing Tier 1 instructional time.

Please join me for a high-energy day filled with practical strategies, activities, tips, and tools you will be eager to implement with your Tier 3 students. I look forward to sharing this day with you.

Sincerely,
Kristen Large

P.S. Again, the focus of this seminar is not on theory, but on practical, easy-to-implement Tier 3 strategies that work for your students who struggle the most in reading.
