Modifications and/or Interventions - suggesti

cdg-1st grade

Junior Member
What I am looking for is a list of the typical "modifications" you make in your classroom and the typical "interventions" that you do. Some people may see these as one & same, while others may see them as different approaches/techniques, so please feel free to give a brief description of your interpretation of these terms.
Since we now have to provide "data" when bringing up a child to our Teacher Assistance Team and/or for Spec Ed testing, I am trying to assist my principal in delveloping a standard form that our teachers can use to indicate any progress (or lack of) after making modifications and/or interventions for a student.
The plan is to provide a grading/score history prior to modifications/interventions and then list a grading history after the modifications/interventions. There would be a check off list of typical modification and intervention options, with a line for "date initiated". Extra lines would be provided for "other steps taken". The teacher would only check off the ones used and record the date started. Having a standard form would save a lot of time, since our district is very big on creating a "paper trail" to show our efforts to meet NCLB.
Thanks for your input!

This would be very helpful to me too! We need to have a list of modifications for our "Intervention Planning Team" which sounds like your Assistance Team! I'd love to see a list of modifications that others use!
