Intensifying Instruction

Course Description

For Classroom Teachers and Instructional Coaches who understand the need to match instruction to student needs and are willing to revise their instructional approach to ensure that it happens.

NDMTSS focuses on providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals. In order to meet the demands of an MTSS system, educators are asking for assistance in deepening their knowledge and skills in how to intensify instructional practices to meet the needs of all students. This training will provide educators with evidence-based instructional designs to accelerate students’ rate of learning. These can be applied at the universal (Tier 1), strategic (Tier 2), and intensive (Tier 3) levels of instruction. The following features of instruction will be addressed:

  • More explicit
  • More modeling
  • More feedback
  • More systematic
  • More opportunities to respond
  • More judicious review


Additional support for those interested in leading school-wide capacity building available.
