Using Response to Intervention to Enhance Math Instruction for Struggling Students, Grades K-6

Online Course

Course Objective/Goals

This video-based online learning course demonstrates the power of Response to Intervention to increase the effectiveness of mathematics instruction and enhance the learning, motivation, and confidence of struggling math learners, grades K-6.

The purpose of this course is to show key elements of RTI in action: collaborating to address students’ learning needs, using math assessment data to guide instruction, and implementing timely targeted interventions to support elementary students who struggle with math. You will clearly see how the RTI model can help maximize math learning for all your students.

You will learn how to:

  • incorporate a variety of learning configurations in ways that optimize Tier 1 math instruction and interventions for struggling students
  • collect and analyze assessment data to enhance math instruction and determine the focus of targeted interventions
  • develop highly focused Tier 2 interventions, monitor students’ progress and adjust instruction as needed
