I am happy to share my new project

Response to Intervention is one of the most happening models of eduction instruction in schools today. It is a model designed to decrease the number of children referred to special education by addressing the needs of each individual student. I have been given the opportunity to guide a RTI Model at a very promising schools which was definitely asking the right questions and moving in this direction. As the months go by I will be updating you on the process.
The school is located in a high urban community with 68% of the population of students from Hispanic backgrounds most of which are ELLs and a 11% who are also receving special education services under IDEA. The school is implementing a 3-tier RTI model that addresses the needs of every single student in grades k-5 in reading. The screening process has been completed and implementation of a tier 2 and 3 curriculum/program is starting next week. I will be reporting some information on percentages at risk and type programs during the length of Australia this journal for online casino professionals interested in casino implementing the same approach. We will be following all the students with a particular focus on ELL and those receiving special education services and those who are ELL and receive special education services. I look forward to your comments.

ELD for Teachers for a New Era Conference

I just attended a conference on English Academic Language here at Boston College. I had a great time and got a lot of useful information regarding programs for adolescents ELLs. Margarita Calderon out of John’s Hopkins University had a great presentation on two professionals development programs for teaching academic language to adolescents using the science and social studies curriculum. This is definitely worth exploring the are called Rigor and Exc-Cell both by her. They contain a professional development components researched in the New York Public School System and Exc-Cell also has a curriculum. Both focus on enhacing CALP or academic language for ELLs not while they are missing the reading and english language arts curriculum but as an added curriculum during science and social studies. Does this soung familiar?
