Often, students most at risk of not acquiring the academic skills, dispositions, and knowledge necessary for long-term success also experience behavior problems. To address students’ behavior and academic challenges, Mike Mattos and Austin Buffum developed the pro-solve process. As seen in the video, the three tiers of response to intervention (RTI) best help students from falling behind in their learning. The thoughtfully adapted RTI at Work™ pyramid, aligned with the PLC at Work™ framework, makes individual students the focus of multi-tiered school interventions. RTI at Work™ is accomplished through the four Cs: collective responsibility, concentrated instruction, convergent assessment, and certain access.
Collaborative teams demonstrate the pro-solve process in this thirty-two-minute video. By bringing together two traditional approaches to RTI implementation—(1) the protocol-based process and (2) the problem-solving process—teachers determine, target, and implement behavior and academic interventions in the three-tiered RTI structure, highlighting teacher responsibility and student support.
The video program explores and responds to the five questions of the pro-solve process.
