Motivating Underachievers Using Response to Intervention and Differentiated Instruction, T&L 2900

In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills to motivate, teach, and assess unmotivated students who are not working to their potential. By the end of the course, you will know how to design interventions that help unmotivated students improve academic achievement and classroom behavior. You will learn how differentiated instruction [DI] addresses different levels of learning, adjustments in timing, and sets expectations for students involved in different classroom activities requiring different skills, each according to his or her needs, and how Response to Intervention [RTI] provides for targeted interventions, academic and behavioral screening for all students, and frequent monitoring of particular students. By identifying various learning styles and modalities that help students overcome their challenges, you will be able to implement both differentiated instruction and RTI in your classrooms, to help your students become lifelong and motivated learners.
