At Paulo Freire Freedom Schools, our explicit goal is that all students will thrive, not only academically, but also socially, emotionally, and physically. In order to reach this high standard, we have developed a system that uses both advisories and collaborative planning time to ensure supports are in place that support our diverse learners. This workshop will showcase our advisory program and our version of RTI. We will share examples of support strategies that are commonly used, including providing differentiated assistance during sustained silent reading, and the use of a variety of assistive technology, in addition to some more creative interventions such as positive notes. Participants will have a chance to share their own support strategies and think through how our systems can be adapted.
