Tools for Progress
Bridges Intervention provides targeted instruction and assessment for essential K–5 mathematics skills within a tiered system of support. The small-group instruction and ongoing progress monitoring are consistent with a Response to Intervention (RTI) or Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework.
Intended to complement regular math instruction, Bridges Intervention is ideal for small groups and can also be used with individuals. Students work with models that spur thinking and build confidence—starting with manipulatives, moving to two-dimensional representations and then mental images. Organized by content rather than grade, progress monitoring is key to the program. Each focused, 30-minute session is matched to student needs.
Bridges Intervention & Common Core Standards
Bridges Intervention was written to address key numeracy and computation skills and concepts for each grade level, K–5. Specifically, Bridges Intervention deals with those clusters identified as major within the following domains: Counting & Cardinality (K), Operations & Algebraic Thinking (K–4), Number & Operations in Base Ten (K–5), and Number & Operations: Fractions (3–5).

Bridges Intervention Adoption Sites
The Bridges Intervention Workshop takes place at your school and is intended for interventionists, as well as classroom and special education teachers who provide intervention support. Other coaches, administrators, and support staff may attend as space allows.
This two-day workshop offers guidance for an effective implementation of Bridges Intervention. We'll discuss best practices, placement assessments, progress monitoring, and more. Attendees will spend time with Set 1 materials on day 1, and explore Set 2 materials on day 2.
Using the same content and structure as the Bridges Intervention Workshop (Contract), this open enrollment, face-to-face workshop is offered in two locations every May. Locations may vary by year. It is intended for interventionists, as well as classroom and special education teachers who provide intervention support. Other coaches, administrators, and support staff may attend as space allows.
The Bridges Intervention Online Course is the online version of our Bridges Intervention Workshop. It is intended for interventionists, but classroom teachers, support staff, coaches, and administrators may attend as space allows.
The course will walk participants through the structure of Bridges Intervention, placement assessments, progress monitoring, and the resources available on the Bridges Educator Site.
