Teacher Intervention Practices: TIPS. A Companion Document to the Teacher Alert System.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Education Response Centre.
"Teacher Intervention Practices (TIPS)," designed for Alberta classroom teachers and other school personnel concerned about students who may be at risk for learning problems, is a companion document to "Teacher Alert System." While "Teacher Alert System" helps the teacher to identify which students in the classroom might be at risk of school failure and specific problems of concern, TIPS helps the teacher to determine what type of intervention framework will be most effective and to decide on specific tactics for intervention. Following the Introduction in section I, section II outlines the steps to take in using TIPS, section III discusses community support, and section IV provides a Behavioral Index listing behaviors of concern to the teacher. Section V focuses on the five areas of concern that form the core of the Teacher Alert System and TIPS: (1) family and welfare issues; (2) classroom environment factors; (3) physical/sensory disorders; (4) developmental and learning disorders; and (5) temperament and behavior disorders. For each area, indicators are provided along with criteria for action, possible reasons from the problem, and tips on how to address the problem. Each area of TIPS also has a Sources of Support section that lists types of personnel who will have expertise in the particular area of concern, or appropriate agencies to contact for assistance. Section VI provides teacher forms for planning and referral. (NB)
