increasing time and intensity to meet all students' needs
the how and why of setting up Response to Intervention
What is Response to Intervention (RTI)?
Whereas traditional teaching might assume that if a student doesn't "get it" that the problem lies with that student, RTI assumes that all students can learn but recognizes that some students will take greater time and smaller group instruction in order to master concepts.
It is expected that approximately 80% of students should be able to master content when given good first instruction. If less than 80% of students are successful then it is possible that first instruction needs to be improved. First instruction includes differentiated lessons and small group instruction during Independent Work Time.
Students who are still experiencing difficulty (tiers 2 and 3) need greater time and intensity spent on the subject and possibly a replacement to their curriculum (an intervention)
