Response to Intervention and Literacy Development

Dr. Peter Johnston

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Sage Colleges Albany Campus, New Scotland Avenue, Kahl Campus Center


Views of literacy development, disabilities, assessment, and intervention are closely linked, and this is particularly evident in approaches to RTI. This talk will explore those links, the critical decisions we need to make, why some RTI structures and practices are more useful than others and how research can inform the choices we make as we implement RTI.  Cosponsored by the School of Education, The Sage Colleges.

Strategic Word Solving:  A Critical

Component of the Interactive

Strategies Approach (ISA)

Dr. Donna Scanlon

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

The College of Saint Rose, Standish Room A

Events and Athletics Center


A major purpose of Response to Intervention is to prevent children from experiencing long-term reading difficulties.  The ISA has been found, across a series of large scale studies, to be   effective in preventing reading difficulties when implemented in classroom, small group, and one-to-one settings.  The ISA is a comprehensive and coherent approach to early literacy instruction which relies on teacher knowledge and expertise.  In this session, we will focus on one aspect of the ISA – the method used to help children develop a strategic approach to word solving.  Instructional practices and illustrative videos will be discussed.  Cosponsored by Thelma P. Lally School of Education, The College of Saint Rose.
