Each year, hundreds of schools and districts work with IM4 to implement an evidence-informed solution to improve intervention programming for students with social, emotional, and behavioral needs that go beyond Tier 1 universal supports alone.
Now, teachers, counselors, and staff can explore a set of Tier II interventions from IM4 on Playbook, Panorama Education’s online professional learning library that equips practitioners and school leaders with strategies to create a positive school climate while also implementing SEL in K-12 classrooms. These resources from IM4 provide practitioners with ready-to-go Tier II-level interventions that can be implemented with students who are exhibiting social, emotional and behavioral problems due to hypothesized performance or acquisition needs. IM4 simplifies intervention programming by coordinating the process from beginning to end: Match, Map, Monitor, and Meet.
The IM4 system has many ready-to-go interventions based on whether the student’s main problems of concern are due to a performance-deficit (won’t do or lack of will) and acquisition-deficit (can’t do or lack of skill). Each intervention is coupled with an automated implementation-facilitation function, such as a step-by-step outline of the active ingredients, customizability progress monitoring tool that can be tailored case-by-case, and fidelity checklist to track the degree to which the intervention is delivered as planned. Also, there is a function to add Ad Hoc interventions and simply use the IM4 as an automated implementation aid to do planning, PM, graphing, fidelity check and decision making.
The activities from IM4 on Playbook align directly with topics from the Panorama Social-Emotional Learning Survey, including:
- Emotion Regulation
- Equity and Inclusion
- Teacher-Student Relationships
Panorama’s Playbook connects teachers, counselors, and school leaders with easy-to-implement resources, activities, and research related to empathy, sense of belonging, teacher-student relationships, adult SEL, family engagement, and more. Teachers explore Panorama's Playbook when they are looking to take action on their Panorama student survey data on school climate and social-emotional learning.
As schools and districts across the country continue to support students’ social, emotional, cultural and cognitive competencies, we are thrilled to share innovative strategies from expert organizations such as IM4!
