Here are some of the ideas that I came away with:
- The 4 C's of RTI- Collective responsibility, Concentrated Instruction, Convergent assessment, Certain access.
- RTI is not separate or in addition to the work that I am already doing as a part of a Professional Learning Community- RTI works hand in hand with PLC's especially in regards to: How do we respond when a student does not learn and What do we do when a student already knows it?
- I can not control what experiences my students have outside of school- but I can control the experiences they have inside of school- I need to take responsibility for ensuring that all students will learn.
- RTI is built around the identified essential skills- it is not something that you have to do for every single standard.
