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
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.
