The updated edition includes expanded information on appropriate Multi-Tier System of Support (MTSS), nine common misconceptions that can lead to students being misidentified as special education students, evidence based practices for more successful teaching for students acquiring English and appropriate techniques for assessing English Language Learners for special education. Participants will analyze their schools current teaching practices, MTSS procedures and brainstorm improvements to these systems based on the information learned.

This class gave me a lot of ideas on how MTSS works. It was very engaging and allow us to dig deeper on a lot of issues regarding high number of ELs being placed in special education.
Shawn Demers
I found this class thought provoking and engaging. I learned so much about MTSS that I have not learned previously. This class provided valuable information about instruction and assessment to use with EL’s, and helped by making clear distinctions between language acquisition and learning disabilities.
Christine Duvall
This class was very helpful to me as an ELL teacher on our MTSS team. The class gave me a lot to think about and add to our process!
