Resources for Teachers

Cognitive Strategy Instruction site from the U. of Nebraska-Lincoln, Department of Special Ed. & Communication Disorders has step-by-step directions for how to teach students new strategies for learning. There are also pages of intervention strategies for reading, math, writing, study skills and the self-regulation of behavior.

The Minneapolis Public Schools district website has an incredible collection of materials for Curriculum-Based Measurement, including instructions, test probes, answers and normative data from the school district. There are sections for oral reading fluency, math computation, written expression and a functional skills assessment. The latter has sections for identifying coins, counting money, telling time (up to the nearest 5 minutes) and identifying common public signs. An adaptive behavior skills hierarchy is part of this section. Also, intervention team materials, FBA forms and educational planning guides/assessments for students with autism.

Joe Witt’s reading center has a whole remedial reading program for grades 1-5. All the instructions, assessment materials and lesson plans are included. The main intervention is repeated reading with correction. The assessment includes oral reading (words read per minute), comprehension questions and vocabulary items for each stories. It’s designed to be supplemental instruction for students 1:1 or 1: small group.

This is the teacher-oriented start page for the Florida Center for Reading Research website. There are links to the student reading center activities frequently mentioned in the RTI literature. They cover all 5 reading areas and there are separate sets of activities for grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5. 

Florida uses DIBELS statewide, and has a set of guides for using DIBELS to determine progress monitoring levels for grades K to 3. 

There are also scripted lesson plans for primary grades covering pre-reading and early reading skills like phonemic awareness and phonics. They’re called “Empowering Teachers”.
