East Union staff works to improve student literacy
AFTON — East Union is part of a new statewide effort designed to help all students read proficiently by the end of third grade. Team members representing the school are Joan Gordon, Emily Wuebker, Susan Stover, Sherry Reed and Dr. Pam Vogel, district superintendent.
The East Union team joined with more than 600 educators from across Iowa to learn how Iowa’s education system is working together to put in place a practice known as Response to Intervention (RtI). This is a statewide effort through Collaborating for Iowa’s Kids, a partnership among Iowa’s AEAs, school districts and Iowa Department of Education.
RtI is a proven practice that helps schools identify students who are struggling readers and then offers interventions to help them improve. Teachers may adapt how they are teaching to fit each student’s individual needs and then can monitor the student’s progress to identify what is working. About 10 percent of the state’s schools will roll out RtI this fall.
