Barbara R. Blackburn talks with me about her latest book Leadership for Remote Learning: Strategies for Success. This is episode 364 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Barbara R. Blackburn, named a Top 30 Global Guru in Education, has dedicated her life to raising the level of rigor and motivation for professional educators and students alike. What differentiates Barbara’s over 25 books are her easily executable concrete examples based on decades of experience as a teacher, professor and consultant. 

Barbara’s dedication to education was inspired in her early years by her parents. Her father’s doctorate and lifetime career as a professor taught her the importance of professional training. Her mother’s career as a school secretary shaped Barbara’s appreciation of the effort all staff play in the education of every student. 

Barbara has taught early childhood, elementary, middle and high school students and has served as an educational consultant for three publishing companies. She holds a master’s degree in school administration and was certified as a teacher and school principal in North Carolina. 

She received her PhD in Curriculum and Teaching from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In 2006, she received the award for Outstanding Junior Professor at Winthrop University. She left her position at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to write and speak full time.

In addition to speaking at state, national and international conferences, she regularly presents workshops for teachers and administrators in elementary, middle and high schools. Her workshops are lively and engaging and filled with practical information. Her most popular seminars include:

Rigor Is NOT a Four-Letter Word

Rigorous Schools and Classrooms: Leading the Way

Rigorous Assessments

Differentiating Instruction Without Lessening Rigor in Your Classroom

Motivation + Engagement + Rigor = Student Success

Rigor for Students With Special Needs

Revisiting Rigor in the RTI and MTSS Classroom with Barbara R. Blackburn & Bradley S. Witzel - 228

Revisiting Rigor in the RTI and MTSS Classroom with Barbara R. Blackburn & Bradley S. Witzel - 228

January 10, 2019

Rigor_in_the_RTI_and_MTSS_Classroom_cover_350.jpg

Barbara_blackburn.jpg Bradley_S_Witzel.jpg

Today I am revisiting, Rigor in the RTI and MTSS Classroom: Practical Tools and Strategies (Routledge, 2018) with the authors Barbara R. Blackburn and Bradley S. Witzel.

 

In their book, the authors "show you how to develop rigorous RTI and MTSS programs that will support students and lead them to lasting success. Written in a clear, engaging style, Rigor in the RTI and MTSS Classroom offers an in-depth discussion of the issues facing students with academic problems as well as practical strategies for all teachers."

Barbara and I first talked about Rigor in the RTI and MTSS Classroom in episode 194. This topic is extremely popular and so we decided to revisit the content and this time the book's co-author, Bradley S. Witzel was able to join us.

Barbara and Brad explain RTI and MTSS and we talk about everything from why training on RTI and MTSS is needed as well as we look at some evidence-based strategies that can be used in the classroom.  

We also take a look at a couple of the chapters and discuss all of the resources that the authors provided the readers.

Lots to learn today.

Thanks for listening and sharing.

Have a great day!
