For RTI to be successful in secondary schools, it is important to understand what is unique about the curriculum demands students encounter as well as what characterizes struggling adolescents in learning situations. This webinar will address these features and introduce the Content Literacy Continuum (CLC) -- a school-wide framework for enhancing literacy achievement.
- Explain why content literacy is an important construct to understand when implementing tiered programs in secondary schools.
- Describe evidence-based interventions at each level of the CLC.
- Describe the important role of speech language professionals in successfully implementing a tiered instruction program in secondary schools.
