The Teaching Implementation Plan (TIP): A Tool for Collaboration and Classroom Organization

Originally designed to help teachers review discuss how they would implement IEP goals and objectives and collect data, it quickly became clear that the Teaching Implementation Plan (TIP) was also a powerful tool for other functions including collaboration between classroom team members, communication with families, and even organizing classroom setup.  Today the TIP is a critical element of the Classroom Organization Results in Effectiveness (CORE) Model as the base for establishing and implementing evidence-based practices in special education classrooms.  Through examples of a variety of students in special education, this workshop will demonstrate how the TIP can help educators organize instruction and develop plans for implementation of instruction and data collection for students in the classroom.   Particular focus will include how it can be used as a collaborative tool among staff members on the educational team and with families.

  1. Participants will be able to describe how the TIP can be used to outline how the students’ goals and learning targets are connected to specific teaching strategies and data collection tools.
  2. Participants will be able to outline benefits of the TIP as a method for easy communication with professionals and families of critical instructional information about implementing students’ instruction of goals and objectives across educational environments.
  3. Participants will learn how to access examples and blank copies of the TIP and ways it can be implemented with their own teams after the workshop.
