RtI2 for ELLs webinar
This interactive webinar presentation addresses considerations for the solution-seeking process to better understand ELLs' academic language development, as this will serve as a context for collecting and interpreting the data they use to make instructional and programmatic decisions within an RtI² process. Viewers will learn how WIDA tools and resources can be used within an RtI² framework through viewing real examples from school districts across the consortium.
Presented by: Cristina Sanchez-Lopez and Laurie Donnell, the lead developers of the WIDA RtI² for ELLs document
