Given the current landscape of education, it is imperative that we work together to support each other and our students. To do that, we can collaborate and implement universal instruction (academic, behavior, social-emotional learning) that is evidence-based for diverse learners and designed to ensure equity and access for students across the tiers.
 
Our work begins with core instruction.
 
This workshop, led by Dr. Judy Elliott and Dr. George Batsche will address the roles and responsibilities of district, building, and classroom leaders to plan for the implementation of universal instruction with a focus on core (Tier 1). A critical component of this workshop will be a discussion of the use of evidence-based strategies for leadership and collaboration, at all levels. In particular, the evidence-based strategies for universal instruction in T1 for A, B, SEL, use of data to develop, implement and evaluate their use, and the role of leaders and facilitators to guide implementation fidelity will be discussed. 
 
The following questions will guide our work together:
  1. How do district, school, and teacher leaders evaluate how well equitable access to quality instruction for all students has been attained?
  2. What infrastructures and systems are necessary to support and ensure quality core (Tier 1) instruction is delivered to all students (e.g., professional learning time, coaching, master schedule)?
  3. What are the collaborative teaching strategies (e.g., using UDL for collaborative lesson planning) that are evidence-based to accelerate the performance of all students?
  4. How does universal instruction integrate with specially designed instruction and vice versa to ensure diverse learners (including students with disabilities) are successful in the core?
  5. What data can district, building, and teacher leaders use to determine if the use of universal instruction across the tiers is improving equitable outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and other marginalized students?
