Response to intervention involves early identification of students’ learning problems and the use of focused lessons, or interventions, to address those problems before they became entrenched. Though primarily linked with special education and early reading, the method is now used at all levels of schooling and in a variety of subject areas. Educators use “tiered intervention” models—of which RTI is one type—to improve school discipline. Guests:David Putnam Jr., Ph.D., director, Oregon Response to Intervention, Tigard-Tualatin School District Darren Woodruff, Ph.D., co-director, National Center on Response to Intervention Kathryn Tackett, Ph.D., coordinator of state technical assistance, National Center on Response to Intervention Nirvi Shah, staff writer, Education Week, will moderate this chat.

The Next Generation of LifelongLearningTeachers: CLIL lesson - History This is a CLIL activity I made up on my own for one of my classes. It's simple, funny, and easy to customize for different subjects (I will post a Geography version later on). It turned out to be motivating and successful, so I would rank it second in my CLIL experience, just after Dante's CLIL. Note: this lesson-plan fits any situation when you want to revise a range of topics you've already studied with your pupils. As for us, we had been studying the fall of the Roman Empire, dealing with different populations: the Romans, the Huns, the Byzantines and the Lombards (Langobards). about 20 students - 12/13 years old subjects: History/Languages Pupils working in teams (4 teams, since we had studied 4 different populations) About 2 hours needed Instructions given in English - pupils can answer and discuss, when needed, both in English and in mother tongue.

CLIL videos Why should CLIL teachers support learners to work actively with the input provided? Firstly, if learners are actively involved in thinking about the content and/or the language, they will reach a better understanding of both. If they re-organise or change input into another form, learners will process and comprehend input better. Tasks for guiding understanding might include, for example, changing information from a diagram into a text, or from a text into a picture or role-play. Secondly, if learners are helped to ‘scaffold’ their learning to understand the main points of lesson input, they will be understood better. Video In this clip, the teacher guides the learners to work actively with the input.

Language and Subject: A balancing act If I would have to name the single biggest question most (new) CLIL teachers have with CLIL it would be: How do you balance language and subject in a CLIL lesson? They might even think the subject content of their lesson would become less important. That is simply NOT true. Let me explain. CLIL abbreviation The CLIL acronym stand for Content and Language Integrated Learning. What is the first word? Yes, every CLIL teacher is a language teacher. I am a subject teacher first and foremost. Language as something ‘extra’ A lot of teachers think that in a CLIL lesson you have to teach your subject and the target language. Apart from the fact that I don’t have time to spend half of my lesson on English assignments, I am not trained nor well suited for this type of education. So what can you do? So, positive approach people: no more “I can’t” or “It’s hard”. Five quick ways to integrate language Brainstorm 2. Ask your students to summarize the lesson in one sentence. 3. Alphabet 2.
