Discussion 1: A Balanced Approach


For this Discussion, you will review the case study scenario from this module’s media of two teachers sharing reading strategies they have implemented within their classrooms for Jamal. It is apparent that some of the strategies are working, whereas others are not. You will assume the role of a special education leader in which you provide guidance and direction in determining the most appropriate evidence-based literacy interventions based on Jamal’s assessment data.
To prepare:
· Review the case study video and the Module’s Learning Resources.
· Enter the Grand City interactive community and locate West Ridge Middle School. View the case study video titled “Implementing Evidence Based Practices.”
· Consider the following as you review the case study video for this module:
o Both teachers have shared evidence-based reading interventions that they have used with Jamal; some are working, whereas others are not. You are tasked with analyzing the evidence-based interventions and determining which interventions are appropriate to meet Jamal’s individual needs based on the data presented.
· Analyze Jamal’s data summary sheet displaying his needs and abilities in reading. Think about the evidence-based literacy interventions discussed. Consider the most appropriate interventions for Jamal, based on the data provided. 

An evaluation of the reading intervention strategies identified by both teachers in the video. Include the following in your evaluation:
An analysis of what you believe the problem is between the two different classrooms. What are possible solutions to ensure fidelity of implementation across settings?
As the special education leader in charge, an explanation of how would you structure this meeting to relatively analyze the data and bring the two teachers to consensus on the most effective approach for fidelity of the implementation for the outlined evidence-based practices.
