PRESS training planned in Storm Lake

LITERACY: Solutions to Closing the Gap: Path to Reading Excellence in School Sites (PRESS) training is planned Feb. 15-16, 2018 at Buena Vista University, Siebens Forum, in Storm Lake.

PRESS Classwide Intervention - 12:30-4 p.m. Feb. 15, 2018 
Register at RE039199611801   
$35+ materials if needed*

For classroom teachers, literacy coaches, and others providing whole class instruction.

Learn an efficient process for data teams to analyze screening data and plan supplemental tier 1 supports for whole-class implementation. We introduce a process for examining student data and using a protocol to guide instructional decisions. Specifically, we demonstrate a classwide intervention framework for classrooms where over half of students have been identified as below grade-level on a universal screening measure. This process helps strengthen core instruction and, within a short time frame of ten days, the number of students requiring intervention can be significantly reduced.

PRESS Tier 2 Interventions & Introduction to Progress Monitoring - 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Feb. 16, 2018 
Register at RE038499611801
$60 + materials if needed*

For classroom teachers, interventionists, literacy coaches, and others providing small group interventions.

Determine targeted, small group interventions using the PRESS data-driven decision making process. Learn how to identify students’ intervention needs using the PRESS diagnostic tools and then select and implement specific, skill-based interventions from the PRESS Intervention Manual. Consider the components of effective interventions & implementation fidelity. An introduction to continuous progress monitoring is provided with an emphasis on decision making using ongoing, reliable data collection.
