Project title: Response to Intervention Techniques as Applied to Sixth Grade Math Content to Promote Student Success
Mentor: Stephen Byrd
I spent this spring collaborating with individuals that have proved to be influential in the success of my project. I met with two professors from the mathematics department to discuss the content of my scripts. These scripts will function as lesson plans when they are implemented during the interventions. Our conversation led to an arrival at new possibilities for ways in which to make the lessons engaging. I later met with the response to intervention coordinator at the school where I have been conducting my research. This meeting allowed us to discuss current trends in the data on student results in response to intervention at the school. We also spoke of plans for the coming months when I will collect data of my own using original scripts. College students will act as tutors during the implementation of these scripts. I met with first-year Teaching Fellows to present to them the opportunity to serve as tutors in the fall. I was pleased that sixteen students indicated that they were interested, which is well beyond the number of individuals required for this task. I also gave a presentation to one of my education classes on response to intervention. This served as a pseudo conference presentation, as it allowed me to speak about my project to my peers.
