Curricular & Re-Teaching Interventions in Your District

Do you have curricular or re-teaching intervention strategies that are currently succeeding in your disrict? Curricular interventions are designed to assess the effectiveness of all or parts of the district curriculum. Re-teaching interventions are designed to increase standards mastery of specific students. If the district has an intervention initiative, what are the ways in which its success is being measured or documented?

We do re-teaching outside of the regular instruction block. All schools in the district implement a system where teachers are teamed up, they get support in choosing targeted standards and these standards are put into instructional maps to teach, assess and re-teach.

Across the districts, we continue to struggle to identify all of the intervention initiatives that are in place in the schools. Do we have data to prove the program works?

We are using RTI to improve targeted instruction and intervention groups that clump students by assessment results.

We're utilizing custom benchmarks in math to assess what was taught and help evaluate instruction.

Our "getting started vision" includes having teachers know how to use reports.

In our district we use the following:
-Galileo benchmarks to review curriculum
-Galileo benchmarks for re-teach and enrich

We have found the variety of intervention models within Galileo to be helpful.

We've implemented "WIN" time - "What I Need." Also before and after school interventions. So, interventions are in place, but not enough data is in place yet to see their effectiveness.

-Weekly grade-level collaboration meetings
-Cycle of inquiry
-I-Station - benchmarks and ongoing assessment
-Accelerated reader – reports

At the middle school level, we find at risk students and have an after school program for re-teaching.

Some programs have assessments built in. Other programs have pre-post. Others are only tied to formative assessments and generally not monitored and documented for effectiveness.
