Livermore Falls Middle and High School, Special Education
A number of schools systems are looking at this program to use for the purpose of RTI. Published by Celebration Press, the program is based on the original work by Bear, Invernizzi, Johnston, and Templeton, the series has a teacher's guide and student notebook for each developmental stage. Developed in conjunction with Dr. Bear, the program includes what they call spelling checks that can be used for short term curriculum assessments.
Ted Finn, the principal opened the day with a message to his teachers restating his faith in their ability and commitment to their students.
I will be visiting teachers in their classrooms in October to observe their teaching strategies while working with teachers.
