The National Center on Response to Intervention is hosting a webinar entitled "English Language Learners and RtI" on April 29 from 1:00-2:00 pm CST. This presentation focuses on improving educational outcomes for ELLs through culturally and linguistically responsive implementation of an RtI framework in elementary reading. Specifically, presenters will discuss critical considerations to appropriately use screening and progress monitoring data to improve reading outcomes for ELLs. The presentation addresses the factors that influence ELLs' academic success and provides information about the selection and use of screening and progress monitoring data based on students' unique backgrounds and needs. A case study of a first grade ELL student illustrates the recommendations.
