Behavior Foundations Winter

Behavior Foundations Face-to-Face consists of two one-day trainings. The first was held in the Fall and the current is scheduled for Spring (February/March). The Fall training focused on practical applications of evidence-based intervention strategies for individuals with ineffective or problem behavior. Spring training will focus on conducting functional behavioral assessment and designing interventions that will increase engagement in appropriate alternative and desirable replacement behaviors that will lead to individual success and academic growth.
There are more ways to benefit from the Behavior Foundations training series! Behavior Foundations Face-to-Face is the first of the four-part Idaho Behavior Foundations Academy that will assist schools, districts, and regions to achieve effective practices for students with problem behavior.

Digital Library Spotlight Webinars, facilitated by national experts and innovative practitioners, highlight Digital Library resources on timely and relevant topics. Spotlight Forums connect educators across Smarter member states to discuss these resources and topics.

The Supporting Students with Disabilities Spotlight Webinar and Forum series features three Digital Library resources:

Maximizing Access to Instruction and Testing for Students with Disabilities to Improve Achievement. In this Research-to-Practice Brief webinar, Dr. Elliott will examine the concept of accessibility in classroom instruction and large-scale testing and share research-driven strategies teachers can use to improve access for all students. Accessibility is grounded in legislation, Universal Design theory, and professional testing standards. Researchers have investigated a number of strategies and resources for improving access to instruction and tests. Dr. Elliott will discuss the research behind these strategies and recommend a set of teacher actions to maximize access to instruction and testing so all student have opportunities to learn rigorous content and demonstrate what they have learned and can do.

Opportunity to Learn for All Students: Enhancing Access to What Should be Taught and Will be Tested. In this Research-to-Practice Brief webinar, Dr. Kurz will examine the concept of opportunity to learn (OTL) and how OTL data can be used to inform instruction. Recent advancements using teacher logs have allowed educators to collect OTL data across the school year in ways that can be formative to classroom instruction. Dr. Kurz will discuss the importance of OTL data based on federal mandates and fairness in testing and provide suggestions for evidence-based decision-making in the formative assessment process. He will give examples to illustrate the use of evidence from OTL and the formative assessment process using My Instructional Learning Opportunities Guidance System (MyiLOGS) and the Smarter Interim Assessment Blocks.

Understanding and Accelerating Achievement Growth for Students with Disabilities. Dr. Schulte will discuss achievement gaps and growth for students with disabilities, as well as several aspects of instruction that can be modified to accelerate achievement growth in this Research-to Practice Brief webinar. She will explore seven key factors that accelerate growth, including time on instruction, opportunities for active student responding, explicit teaching of content and strategies, and targeting students’ specific needs. Dr. Schulte will provide a range of examples from instructional intervention research, most focused on students with disabilities or other groups of students who are struggling to reach proficiency levels for their state’s performance standards.
