MTSS team members will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to design and deliver tier 2 supports and services in writing. Alterable variables for differentiating instruction, intensifying instruction, and addressing student writing needs will be presented. Instructional accommodations for English Learners (ELs) will specifically be addressed within this context. Tier 2 intervention will also be examined by linking student assessment data with appropriate instructional interventions. As writing samples are examined, for example, educators will ask: “If students have difficulty with ___________, what interventions can be used to improve student performance?” The workshop will conclude with a comprehensive case study application that examines instructional and intervention alignment across tiered providers.
