Literate Student Engagement in EVERY Classroom, EVERY Lesson, EVERY Day!
literate engagement is absolutely foundational to effective instruction.
In this presentation participants will receive a practical “engagement
tool kit” that is directly transferable to any classroom from
Kindergarten pre-reading to High School Physics. Using classroom video,
structured simulations and interactive discussion participants will
“learn by doing”. A particular emphasis will be placed on how to develop
a coherent faculty-wide focus resulting in a significant increase in
student engagement across the school.
Specific topics to be addressed include:
Kevin Feldman is the Emeritus Director of Reading and
Intervention with the Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE) and an
independent educational consultant working with publishers, schools,
and districts across the country and in Asia. Dr. Feldman serves as
lead consultant to a number of RTI/CCSS Instructional improvement
related projects around the country supporting a rigorous effort to
improve content area literacy or Tier 1 instruction in grades K-12.
Without a focus on systems of implementation, even effective practices are likely to be abandoned. One method for increasing sustainability is to integrate social behavior support systems (such as PBIS) and academic systems into a single, integrated multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS). This presentation will describe how separate initiatives can be merged into a single, integrated MTSS without creating a shipwreck.
McIntosh, Ph.D., teaches and conducts research in the
areas of positive behavior support, equity in school discipline, and
sustainability of evidence-based interventions in schools. He is
Director of Educational and Community Supports, a research unit in the
College of Education, University of Oregon.
