Response to Intervention (RTI) has quickly become common terminology in the field of literacy. RTI is based on a powerful framework that has the potential to change the way we address reading in schools due to a renewed emphasis on approaching literacy from a school-wide perspective. RTI holds great promise in ensuring that every teacher will assume responsibility for the success of every child. The success of RTI hinges on our ability to elevate the role of the classroom teacher while offering carefully coordinated support options designed to extend that role. When the RTI model is effectively implemented, it allows us to build high quality literacy opportunities from the ground up that are based on thoughtful instructional experiences that rise from varied assessments and professional collaborations designed to flexibly meet the unique needs of students.
This workshop will explore RTI from All Sides by identifying the critical features that turn RTI from a good idea on paper to a powerful framework of coordinated efforts based on instructional responsiveness and differentiation.
In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to:
- design and utilize a "tiered" intervention model for long-term success
- identify and implement effective instructional interventions and strategies
- integrate literacy instruction across the curriculum within and across tiers
- ensure coordination of tiers for maximum achievement gain.
Mary will illustrate the success factors with a detailed description of each tier, and the tools and steps that are essential for a school-wide view of literacy excellence within an RTI model.
