Academic Interventions Bank Training.
Jenkins, Tom; Torrens, Meg
This paper describes development of a bank of interventions in response to individual student needs identified by Student Study Teams (SSTs) in the Horry County (South Carolina) school district. It also describes the training of SST members in the selection, application, and monitoring of each intervention. Following a survey that identified basic reading skills as the most common student need, district staff identified specific interventions known to be valid and effective. For the area of phonemic awareness, interventions were grouped into the five levels identified by Jo Fitzpatrick. Interventions recommended for each level of phonemic awareness skills training are briefly described. Several interventions to develop reading comprehension skills are then explained. For mathematics, interventions focus on basic math facts and solving multi-step math problems. The final area for which interventions are identified is written expression. A graph lists each intervention by area of concern with information on direct teaching, practice, progress monitoring, and a reference source. (Contains references.) (DB)
