Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 05/23/08

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found interesting this week. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

RTI – great resources about “Response to Intervention.” It talks about understanding the model, using teams to problem solve, selecting the right intervention, monitoring student progress, and graphing data for visual analysis.

DLD : Current Practice Alerts – “The Alert series is for practitioners, administrators, and parents who seek an authoritative, informative, and user-friendly decision-making tool to untangle the thicket of academic and marketplace claims and controversies regarding practice effectiveness with individuals with learning disabilities. References will be provided for readers who want access to additional technical information.”

Intervention Central – “offers free tools and resources to help school staff and parents to promote positive classroom behaviors and foster effective learning for all children and youth.”

Rubistar – great tool to make your own rubrics

Scientifically-based Research: A Link from Research to Practice – interesting reading, math, and writing strategies to use in the classroom

Pat, thanks for throwing a link to the Current Practice Alerts section of TeachingLD. Next time you visit, you might want to peruse the section called "Expert Connection" which provides quick comments on current questions we receive from readers.

Rubistar is fantastic! I highly recommend it. It saves soooo much time when I'm having my kids do a project and I need a rubric.
