This lesson will define Response to Intervention (RTI). It will also provide you with mathematical teaching strategies that align with Response to Intervention.

Response to Intervention Defined

It's your first year of teaching, and one of the big buzz terms is response to intervention (RTI). You think to yourself, what is RTI and how does it apply to my students and my approach to teaching?

RTI is a multi-level approach that aims to identify students, early on, who are struggling in school. The students are then provided targeted instruction to help them catch up. Though there's not one single model for RTI, most schools use a three-level approach. Let's take a look at the three levels now.

Level 1

Level 1: Instruction, Screening & Group Interventions

All students receive high quality instruction based on research-based teaching practices. This is important because you want to be sure that the students' difficulties are not due to inadequate instruction. Students are tested on a periodic basis to be establish an academic and behavioral baseline. This allows the teacher to identify struggling students and provide the needed support in the classroom.

Level 1 typically lasts no longer than eight weeks. During this time, students are monitored closely. Students that show significant growth are usually returned to the regular classroom program. Students that continue to struggle move on to level 2.

Level 2

Level 2: Targeted Interventions

Struggling students are provided intense instruction based on their individual needs. The specialized instructions, along with the general curriculum, is provided in a small group setting. This level usually last no longer than one marking period. Students that continue to struggle and show little progress move on to level 3.
