What is the first, easy step to get started?

Who am I going to work with?
- a multi-tiered approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs.
- it begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom.
-struggling learners are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning.
-it is an integrated system of instruction and intervention
-these services may be provided by a variety of personnel, including general education teachers, special educators, and specialists.

* What's going on for our learners?
* How do we know?
* Why does it matter?
As you work through these questions, refer to the list of reflective questions in the handout.

* What more evidence do we need?
* How will we gather it?
* What are some strengths that our learners show in this area?
* How could we build on these strengths?
* Where are we going to concentrate our energies so that we can change the results and the experiences of our learners?
Developing a Hunch:

* How can we express our views in a way that opens up thinking about our practices ?
* How can we create the conditions that build curiosity not defensiveness?
* How do we ensure that when developing hunches, we focus on the areas over which we have control -
rather than blame the parents, the system, the learners
or anyone else?
* How can we develop fairly quick ways to testing out our hunches?

* Now, that we have explored some hunches and have landed on a focus for more in depth learning and action, what is it we need to learn more about?
* Are there schools with a similar focus we can learn from?
* What is the most current evidence informed thinking in this area?
* Who can we draw on for support?
* What resources can we access?
* How can we make sure that the strategies we are considering are evidence informed and fit with our context?
* What designs for professional learning will we
* How will we build in multiple opportunities for learning during the school day?
* How will we address the varied needs of educators in our setting? How will we ensure that everyone– formal leaders, teachers and support staff – are supported in their learning?
Taking Action:

* How will we ensure that all those involved have the time and support to try out new actions?
* How will we provide opportunities to learn from what is working – as well as from the challenges we face when trying out new approaches?
* How can we make risk taking less risky?
* How will we build in collegial support for new actions?
* How will we ensure there are lots of opportunities for reflection?
* How will we open up our classroom doors as we try out new approaches

* What evidence will we be seeking to know we are making a difference?
* How much difference?
* When will we check and how often?
* How can we do it in a way that allows for adjustment – right away?

Imagine that Sheela, Frank and you are preparing an Indian meal for some friends, including a long time friend who is returning from some years working in Europe. Sheela, a computer programmer, is from India. She grew up appreciating varied Indian spices and foods, but she isn't that keen on cooking and doesn't do it often. She is especially fond of the friend whom she has not seen in two years. Frank is a gourmet cook. His specialties are Italian cooking and making bread, and cooks every chance he gets. He has never eaten Indian food, and doesn't know the names of any dishes. Frank has a lot of confidence in his ability to learn to cook new things and loves a challenge. Both Sheela and Frank are eager to give it a try because a mutual friend is coming from abroad and they want the party to be wonderful.
