RTI, or Response to Intervention, can help to identify and provide support for students with academic or behavioral struggles. This lesson will provide some background information on RTI, as well as some intervention strategies for students in Tier 1 of the RTI process.

What is RTI?

Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tiered, early intervention approach aimed at supporting learners who struggle academically or behaviorally. This three-tier approach is used in order to successfully differentiate instruction for all students. The goal of RTI is to get students on the right path for success in school. The ongoing collection and analysis of data during the RTI process is used to examine students' progress and get a better understanding of which tier will best suit his or her academic and behavioral needs.

This lesson will focus on intervention strategies within Tier 1 of RTI.

RTI: Tier 1 Instruction

As a teacher, it is important to base your instructional methods upon the needs and learning styles of your students. Intricate planning must be made in order to provide high-quality, research-based instruction within the classroom. Within Tier 1, you will want to utilize interventions and instructional strategies that teach students the skills and functions he or she will need to successfully master the academic content being taught.

A majority of students will fall into the Tier 1 category. According to the RTI Action Network, you must be able to provide high-quality, research-based instruction that ensures any difficulties students have are not a result of inadequate instruction. Your role within RTI, including RTI Tier 1, is crucial for student success. That being said, let's get started!

Below, you will find intervention strategies within four different categories: instructional, behavioral, time management, and assessment.
