Title Description
National Center for Intensive Interventions (NCII)

NCII has developed a series of professional learning modules intended to assist district or school teams involved in initial planning or implementation of data-based individualization (DBI) as a framework for providing intensive intervention in academics and behavior. The modules include an overview of the DBI process and more in-depth exploration of the various components.

Georgia Department of Education, High-Leverage Practices Resource Hub

The Georgia Department of Education supports a High-Leverage Practice (HLP) Resource Hub that offers Georgia preparation providers and educators resources related to HLPs, from introduction through application, along with an accompanying HLP/edTPA Rubric Crosswalk.

High-Leverage Practices and Evidence-Based Practices: A Promising Pair

This brief is designed to show how high-leverage practices (HLPs) and evidence-based practices (EBPs) can be used together to advance educator preparation and practice. The brief defines HLPs and EBPs and shares examples of how educator preparation programs are integrating them in their candidates’ learning opportunities. The brief concludes with an illustration of how they can be seamlessly integrated into instruction provided as part of multi-tiered systems of support.

CEEDAR Course Enhancement Modules

Course Enhancement Modules (CEMs) include usable resources for faculty and professional development providers to integrate into coursework or professional development to provide teachers and leaders with effective opportunities to learn about and use evidence-based practices. CEM resources are designed to be used in whole or in part with teacher preparation and professional development programs to support learning at the pre-service and in-service levels.
