Enrichment and Remediation
Transcript of Enrichment and Remediation
My district started this program two years ago at the elementary (1-6) level. The ideas and objectives of this program can be extended to the secondary level.
During ER time, students are grouped according to the skills that they need to work on. Each teacher will take a group and design activities centered around that skill.
This prezi was designed to show you the benefits and challenges of implementing an ER program in your building. ER will meet state requirements of RTII by providing tiered instruction to our students. In the beginning of the year, we use data from the previous year as well as observations to place students in their first group. Students are grouped into either Tier 1, Tier2, or Tier3. These Tiers are used to identify the intensity of instruction the student may require (Johnston, 2010). What is Enrichment and Remediation? RTI (RTII) has become popular among many school organizations as a multilevel prevention system so students can succeed (Fuchs et al., 2012). Teachers will implement flexible group instruction based on student data and progress. Teachers will develop a shared responsibility with colleagues for student progress. You are no longer solely responsible for the progress of your students. (Fuchs et al., 2012) The data that we use to group our students include math benchmarks, DRAs (reading benchmarks), Title1 classifications, and basic observations. All of the teachers in that particular grade level get together and decide what groups they need to form in order to help the students. We usually get together in the morning before class. (Johnston, 2010) It is very important to remember that these formed groups are flexible and can be changed if necessary. Teachers are expected to record documentations based on student progress. If one student needs to be moved to a different group then we can get together and place that student where they belong. ER and Gifted Students Gifted students are also included during ER. At least one of the ER groups are designed to challenge those students who require it. Usually we have a math enrichment group that will solve advanced problems. When developing the lessons, teachers need to provide students a chance to develop their problem solving skills. Coleman and Hughes (2009) write, “The purpose of RtI is squarely improving results for students: All students. Indeed, RtI is not about special education, nor general education, nor talented and gifted, nor at-risk, nor migrant education . . . RtI is about Every Education” (Coleman, M. & Hughes, C. 2009, p.15). Benefits and Challenges of ER There are many benefits of ER including:
differentiating instruction according to students needs
providing intense direct instruction
preventing students from "falling through the cracks"
developing positive, productive relationships with colleagues The challenges of ER include:
lack of useful data
limits of time and resources from the school (Saeki et al., 2011)
lack of support (Saeki et al., 2011) Bringing ER to the Secondary Level Even thought this particular program was designed for grades 1-6, the theory and objectives can be used for all grades. As teachers we want to help our students any way we can. By identifying their strengths and weaknesses we can accomplish this. Secondary teachers can work together to identify what their students need help with. A Social Studies teacher can talk to an English teacher about a student's lack of writing skills. Or an English teacher can provide information to a Physical Education teacher regarding a student's reading ability. If teachers work together to help students then those students have a much better chance of succeeding. ER Activity Everyone will be receiving an example of a Tiered Group List. Each student on the list requires extra help when it comes to reading. Please review the data and decide what the students need to work on.
Try to come up with an activity or two that could help these students. Feel free to talk to someone next to you if you are stuck.
