Looking at Tier 1 Instruction and Tier 2 Interventions:
Supporting Students in Grades 6–12 Who Struggle with Learning Mathematics
February 23-24, 2018
Target audience: grades 6–12 general education and special education teachers, math interventionists, district-level and building-level math leaders
With a focus on multi-tiered systems of support, classroom and special
education teachers and interventionists will expand their knowledge of
highly engaging Tier 1 instruction and Tier 2 interventions to support
students’ learning of mathematics. During this highly interactive workshop,
participants will consider instructional strategies, content interventions, and
assessments for learning algebraic and geometric concepts and skills. Using
evidence-based strategies such as the concurrent presentation of multiple
representations, participants will explore rigorous, engaging, classroom-
tested tasks that create robust learning without a ‘teaching by telling’
The content for February 23 will focus on algebraic concepts and skills,
including concept of variable, one and two-variable equations, and linear and
polynomial expressions and equations. The second day will emphasize
concepts and skills related to functions (including graphing),
transformations, and links between geometric and algebraic topics.
Throughout both days, a questioning framework will be introduced and
instructional strategies that support student engagement in lessons will be
DR. BARBARA DOUGHERTY will lead this interactive workshop. She is the
Director of the Curriculum Research & Development Group at the University
of Hawaii. Barb is the author or co-author of more than 50 books including,
Algebra I: A Process Approach (2nd Edition), Developing Essential
Understandings of Algebraic Thinking, Hands-On Explorations in Algebra,
and Putting Essential Understandings of Teaching and Learning Geometry
into Practice, 22 book chapters, and over 25 journal articles. She is a
former member of the Board of Directors of the National Council of
Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the Series Editor for Putting
Essential Understandings into Practice series as well as the lead advisor and
developer for NCTM’s Algebra Readiness Interactive Workshops.
Barb is a co-PI on a US Dept. of Education (IES) grant that was funded to
develop progress monitoring tools to determine student achievement and
growth on algebraic concepts for middle and high school. Additionally, she is
the co-PI on another IES grant that resulted in Tier 2 intervention modules
to support algebra readiness for middle school students.
