Today's teachers are using two powerful approaches — Differentiated Instruction (DI) and Response to Intervention (RTI) — to help every child succeed academically. In this course, you'll learn how to put this "dynamic duo" to work in your own classroom teaching and lesson plans. You'll start by exploring different learning styles and multiple intelligences. After that, you'll master the fundamentals of DI and RTI and learn how these approaches work hand-in-hand to enhance children's learning. You'll find out how to perform assessments, select research-based teaching materials, address learners' diverse needs, and move students up or down the RTI tiers so they're getting just the right help they need. You'll also get lots of ideas for specific activities you can put to use right away in your own classroom. This course is a must for educators who need to stay current with today's most important teaching methods. For complete course details, please visit the ed2go Online Career Training web site.
