Response to Intervention

Sopris West Embraces Response to Intervention (RtI)
Use the research-based and classroom-tested math supplements and targeted interventions presented on the following pages to translate effective instruction, core programs, and assessment data into maximum student math growth.
1. What is RtI? RtI is a broad-based educational approach that starts with effective teaching and core curricula. RtI’s “signature” is the use of assessment to identify students in need of proven intervention and to gauge how those students respond. 2. How does RtI address math? RtI is a schoolwide system designed to avoid unnecessary and expensive designations of “learning disability.” RtI incorporates evidence-based reading instruction, curricula, and assessments. 3. To which students does RtI apply? Prevention-oriented RtI applies to both the general and special education student populations across three tiers of instruction serving “All,” “Some,” and “Few” students as laid out in the table below. 4. How does RtI benefit students and educators? When problems are caught and corrected early, students are more likely to stay engaged with their core math program, allowing educators to apply their efforts to a majority of students at grade level while providing differentiated instruction for students in need of additional help.

Response to Intervention (RtI) is:
Establishment of effective teaching strategies and core curricula with the general education population

ASSESS STUDENTS’ PRIOR KNOWLEDGE In this first section of the book, students are exposed to various multiplicative contexts that prompt them to think about the nature of multiplication. Begin with a discussion about multiplication.
Ask, Suppose you had to explain multiplication to a friend who didn’t know what it meant. What would you tell your friend? First, write down some thoughts about this question. Then share your ideas with a partner. Have a whole-class discussion of the question. As students talk, write a list of the descriptions of multiplicamultiplica tion on the board. Listen for: (Students may suggest repeated addition as a description. They may mention the multiplication, or times, table. They may also refer to the multiplication algorithm. Some students may suggest that multiplicamultiplica tion is a way to combine equal groups.)

Launch the Problem Solving
There are no problems on page 1. Instead, students are introduced to four common representations of multiplication. Have students read the page and discuss these representations with a partner. Then have pairs share their thoughts in a class discussion. Refer to the discussion Representations of Multiplication that follows for further examples. As students discuss their conclusions and share their thoughts, focus on these issues: Allow Waiting Time – When students struggle to explain their thinking, be sure to allow them at least 20 seconds to organize their thoughts. Encourage Language Development – As students discuss page 1, encourage them to use the appropriate terms for the types of multiplication problems presented.

Number of Test Questions

Number Correct for 70%

70 100

35 50

7 10

42 60

100 80 60 50 40 20

70 42 In this example, we starte d with what we know. 70% is our target. We used a ratio table to work backwards until we reached a test that had 60 quest ions. Strategies: 1) Half of 70 is 35; half of 100 is 50 2) 50 divided by 5 is 10; 35 divided by 5 is 7 3) 50 + 10 = 60; 35 + 7 = 42

So, 42 out of 60 is 70%.

MODEL MATHEMATICAL THINKING ODEL Begin a discussion about multiplication by telling the following story: Thousands of years ago, people learned to cooperate with people from other villages or tribes through trading. To do this, they needed numbers to count with so they could keep track of the objects they were trading and to be sure they did not get cheated. As the villages and tribes got larger, so did the amount of objects they traded. To make it easier to tell how many objects a village was trading, the people learned how to group them and then count the groups. Now, suppose 4 families in a small tribe were in charge of bead-making, and they each contributed 32 beads for trading. How could we find how many beads in all the tribe could trade?

Talk Through the Thinking: I suppose I could draw 4 circles to stand for the families and then place 32 dots in each circle to stand for the beads. Then I could count all the dots, one by one, to find how many beads in all. Wow. This would take a long time. There must be a better way. I know! I can add 32

Math Assessment

NEW Children’s Progress Mathematics Assessment
Children’s Progress Inc.
Grades PreK–3

The Children’s Progress Mathematics Assessment (CPMA) is a comprehensive mathematics progress monitoring solution. In contrast to standard summative assessments—assessments of learning, which merely measure achievement—our formative assessments—assessments for learning—actually help guide achievement in the right direction. Our dynamic technology, developed at Columbia University, identifies each student’s zone of proximal development and immediately adapts by presenting appropriate items. The CPMA integrates flawlessly with any diagnostic evaluation that your school may already be using and features: • Content fully aligned to state standards • Engaging and interactive questions • Instant and easy-to-use reports • Individualized teaching activities • Unlimited access throughout the school year The CPMA examines student progress in Numeracy, Measurement, Operations, and Patterns/Functions. Following is just a sampling of the early mathematics concepts covered by the CPMA. Since the assessment is adaptive, each child will only see what is appropriate:

Professional Development Services

Professional Development
Sopris West’s Closing the Achievement Gap (CTAG) Initiative gives educators the skills and support they need to raise math achievement levels and make adequate yearly progress (AYP). Teachers learn practical strategies for content-based, assessment-driven instruction that engages at-risk students.

MATH
Closing the Achievement Gap
Don’t leave your struggling math students behind!
Closing the Math Achievement Gap (CTAG—Math) focuses on catching students who are at risk for math failure in the critical grades of 5–10. Using research-validated instructional techniques, CTAG—Math arms schools with the knowledge and skills to: • Provide effective instructional strategies and interventions • Build student success in comprehending complex mathematical skills, concepts, and language • Lay a solid foundation to prepare students for higher-level math classes • Differentiate instruction to reach students with diverse skills and knowledge • Equip students to successfully navigate the “gatekeeper” classes of algebra and geometry

Meet adequate yearly progress goals!
Our experienced CTAG—Math team can effectively lead your math department to make systemic changes in line with response to intervention (RtI). Our team provides: • Analysis of data to drive instruction and grouping • Teacher coaching and classroom modeling to increase student engagement • Guidance on curriculum and increasing its effectiveness • Techniques for principals to conduct efficient and meaningful walk-throughs to reinforce classroom work • Professional development to show the “why” behind the “how” of effective math instruction The CTAG—Math Initiative is at work today in schools across the country and in comprehensive efforts to shape schoolwide reform. As we build momentum through collaboration with education leaders, we are, indeed, beginning to close the math achievement gap and raise achievement levels for all students.
