Practical Ideas and Strategies

Secondary students who struggle with reading become increasingly at risk for school failure. How can we help all students develop the skills necessary to be more proficient and confident readers and avoid such failure? How can we align our literacy curriculum and instruction to the RTI model? These questions and more will be answered in this valuable professional development opportunity.

In this exciting, new seminar, Rebecca Rozmiarek will demonstrate outstanding RTI methods and techniques for intervening with your students in grades 6-12 who are struggling with reading success in middle school and high school. These ideas will give you a fresh approach for meeting the needs of your students and will help you design highly effective literacy lessons using the RTI framework.

The entire day is packed with practical ideas that you can take back to your classroom and implement immediately with your own students. You will leave with specific “how-to” steps and a wealth of creative ideas for how to use the RTI method to increase and enhance the literacy development of all your students.

Each seminar participant will receive an extensive resource handbook filled with practical ways to implement RTI strategies in grades 6-12 classrooms.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader, Rebecca Rozmiarek

Dear Colleague,

Being a secondary school teacher is a challenging venture, one that can be frustrating but rewarding at the same time. One of the biggest challenges for secondary teachers is helping all of our students become truly literate. When students reach middle school and high school and are still not meeting with academic success, it is critical that we as educators address the students’ learning gaps so that further failure is prevented and their achievement soars.
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a proven framework for ensuring academic achievement because it is designed as a preventative and as an intervention approach. Using the essential elements of No Child Left Behind and the 2004 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), RTI is now recognized as one of the most effective ways to address academic needs of students. However, we as educators also have many concerns about RTI. We are concerned about appropriate grouping strategies, instructional approaches that are differentiated according to student need and the documentation of progress.

I will address each of these concerns and more in this innovative, new seminar. This seminar will show you the most effective, practical ways to implement RTI in order to increase reading skills at the middle and high school level in ways that are aligned with what you are already doing in your classroom. I will share dozens of creative intervention techniques that are differentiated to meet the needs of your students and have maximum impact on their reading development. I will also share a multitude of resources to assist you in selecting the most powerful intervention techniques to close the reading skills gap in your classroom. Techniques will also be shared that are designed for use by school improvement teams and other school leadership teams that are interested in monitoring literacy achievement in order to modify instruction and accelerate student learning in grades 6-12.

Please join me for an information-packed day filled with practical intervention techniques that will help you as your school implements RTI. I will provide you with dozens of suggestions, tips and strategies and give you the tools to make academic success a reality for your grades 6-12 students.
