Solving Academic and Behavior Problems - Online Course
Margaret Searle and Marilyn Swartz have developed a quick and easy way for individuals and teams to access the support they need when PD time is limited and hard to schedule.
Based upon the new ASCD book Solving Academic and Behavior Problems: A Strengths-Based Guide for Teachers and Teams this training extends the former RTI/MTSS Coaches' Training. The course helps both new and experienced educators explore more efficient strategies for improving the way they diagnose and resolve learning and social/emotional concerns.
Each simple but engaging lesson is designed to help K-12 teachers and administrators act as peer coaches who can apply a strengths-based approach to the RTI/MTSS process.
Each module can be accomplished with about 3-4 hours a week of combined online and independent work. Your self-paced work (anticipation guide, videos, rubrics, and reading reflections) will be used as a basis for the weekly live Zoom discussions facilitated by problem-solving experts Margaret Searle and Marilyn Swartz.
The entire course takes approximately 25 hours to complete. CEUs or university credit are available.
Maximum capacity is 20 people per cohort to allow for more personalized feedback during live Zoom sessions. If there is not room in the session you requested, you have the option of being top priority on the waiting list for the next time the course is offered.
Winter Session is scheduled for November 1 - December 6.
Independent Study - Unfacilitated Training:
These classes will be exactly the same as the above course offerings but will be unfacilitated. You will have access to the modules for one month. This allows you to work at your own pace. See the tab at the top of the page to register for the Independent Study.
"I have found this course to be more meaningful and significant to my actual daily work compared to any other courses I have taken in the last several years." - Wendy Dingman, Solon City Schools
