Most of the literature on Response to Interventions (RtI) has focused on reading instruction and interventions. For more than a decade, there has been a plethora of research on reading achievement in preschool and primary grades (National Reading Panel, 2000). Over the last 7 years, there has been tremendous growth in the development and research on adolescent literacy (Biancarosa & Snow, 2004; Bottoms, 2005; Kamil, 2003). Therefore, educators have a wide range of interventions from which to select a program for their students. However, the whole process begins with assessing a student's needs. This paper offers one example of laying out the interventions teachers are exploring. It provides their planning team a quick glance at the intervention, related research studies, and its evidence of effectiveness. Another table could point out the features of the interventions for a quick comparison (See Gersten et al., 2009; Table D1, p. 69). This paper is a response to a request asking for information on Tier II (Targeted Interventions) Reading Interventions.
