I am a Title 1 Math Teacher. I have been given the go ahead to try push-in for level 2 (not to be confused with RTI tier 2) math students. Some background- 3 is on grade level. More than 1/2 student population is eligible for math support. Last semester i served 76 students grades 1-5. Another 35 were with the reading teachers for Math (yep-no sense at all) and 130 were going afterschool. I dont think we made any headway. Plus that just didnt make much since- teachers were losing an 1.5 of instructional time becasue 3/4 of their students were pulled for something or another. The kids need the help but it makes since for me to help them out in thier class.
I have searched the internet for push-in model strategies or articles or something only to find almost nothing. I know I need to get teacher buy-in but how?
Who has been in a situation where there was push-in from a reading or math teacher?
Was it successful? Why or why not?
Thanks in advance
