Conference speaker Doug Fisher shares moving responsibility from teacher to student through differentiated instruction, collaborative learning, and independent practice. •

Pick up any education journal, scan any conference program, even eavesdrop on a conversation between educators and you’re likely to see or hear RTI mentioned. But how can RTI help students and schools improve? We have focused on how students respond to instruction and intervention such that resources are aligned with student success. This requires that we examine quality core instruction (tier 1), supplemental interventions through the strategic use of questions, prompts, and cues (tier 2), and intensive interventions that build student confidence and competence (tier 3). In this session, we will: •Identify components of quality core instruction •Define guided instruction, including robust questions, prompts, and cues •Analyze teaching videos to determine needed interventions •Explore a feed-forward model for taking action on formative assessments
