Intervention Strategies

Thursday 13th February 2020

#UKEdChat session 490 – Everyone needs a little extra support now and then. Whether very able, or someone who struggles with school, interventions to address specific issues and roadblocks can be vital to overcome a barrier. However, there are many things to consider when seeking to begin and execute an intervention, from ensuring that the extra support is a positive experience for the student, and making sure that the intervention isn’t being made at the expense of other learning opportunities.

It’s a complex issue and every individual will require a bespoke intervention.

In the #UKEdChat discussion on Thursday 13th February 2020 at 8pm(UK), and during the After Hours Webinar at 9pm(UK) with guest @ScienceTeachTw1, we discussed when interventions are necessary and how to make interventions successful.
