Implementing Effective Literacy Practices for Instructing English Language Learners Within the Response to Intervention (RTI) Framework

The training module, Implementing Effective Literacy Practices for Instructing English Language Learners Within the Response to Intervention (RTI) Framework, provides facilitators with materials to conduct a half-day workshop that can be delivered to teachers, administrators, or district RTI teams. The module reviews the research on effective practices for providing literacy instruction to English language learners (ELL) and how these practices can be applied within the RTI framework. The module includes activities that will help teams consider what actions steps they should take in their school or district to improve literacy instruction for ELLs.

This module should be delivered by a trained, knowledgeable professional. This training module is designed to be a component of comprehensive professional development that includes supplemental coaching and ongoing support. The Training Facilitator's Guide, which is a companion to all the training modules, is designed to assist facilitators in delivering the training modules developed by the Center.
