Tier Tools for Teachers
1- or 2- day training
The Tier Tools for Teachers training provides teachers with the tools and training needed to immediately
begin administering Tier 1 and Tier 2 intervention for reading, spelling, and writing. In the one-day Tier Tools
training, teachers are exposed to the teaching methods utilized in each of the three components of the Tier Tools for Teachers program: Six Syllable Types to Success, Barebones Grammar for Reading and Writing, and the Tier Tools O-G-based Reading, Language, Spelling, and Grammar Game Sets. The two-day training provides time for deeper training in each of the three components. Each component may also be utilized as a one-day training.
