Practical Ideas and Strategies
Response to Intervention (RTI) is an instructional approach that provides early intervention services to struggling students. RTI focuses on providing a student with assistance when the child needs it, rather than waiting for qualification for a special program.
This outstanding seminar will provide you with an understanding of the issues involved with RTI and the implications for Title I. A successful RTI program coordinates with other services, including Title I, special education and ESL. This seminar will help all educators learn how to better coordinate services to provide effective instruction in reading and math to meet students’ needs. You will learn how RTI fits into Title I programs in both schoolwide and targeted assistance buildings.
Using her own experience and real-classroom examples, Kelly Harmon will present innovative, research-based strategies for implementing this child-centered and achievement-focused process. She will also provide you with classroom‑proven instructional strategies for working with your at-risk students. You won’t want to miss this strategy-packed day filled with useful strategies to strengthen your Title I program and help your struggling students become more successful.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader
As Title I educators, we have all worked with the student who struggled, didn’t respond or who needed more than we could provide. In the past, we searched for a program to help these students; often, special education was their only hope to get intensive focused assistance. We also know the students who didn’t “make it” – who didn’t qualify for special education and continued to flounder until next year’s teacher could refer them for more testing. Response to Intervention (RTI) is an exciting strategy that states and districts may opt to use as a new way to meet students’ needs earlier and quicker.
In this seminar, I will share with you strategies for coordinating Title I with RTI as a way to get students the help they need before they fail. You may be asking these kinds of questions regarding RTI:
- How is RTI different from what I’ve been doing?
- How do I effectively use RTI techniques to meet the needs of my at‑risk students?
- What are the most effective strategies for working with an at-risk student?
- How can RTI help us strengthen our Title I program?
I will help you answer these questions and more. We will discuss the key elements in developing a model and how school teams can collaborate to make the process efficient and effective. Most importantly, I will give you strategies to organize your interventions to include intensive, systematic and multi-level instruction. We will focus on proactive interventions to support and scaffold students before they fail.
Join me for a strategy-packed, highly practical seminar that focuses on coordinating Title I with RTI to help teams of educators support students before they “fail enough.”
P.S. repared to take back practical strategies and activities you can use immediately! We will focus on proactive interventions to support and scaffold students before they fail.
