Teachers Experiences with the Implementation of Response to Intervention
Duoos, Kirsten M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The focus of this research was on Response to Intervention (RTI) from the teachers' perspective. A considerable amount of research has been done on the structure of RTI and on specific interventions. This research sought to better understand the implementation of RTI from the classroom teachers' perspective. The research approach in this dissertation was a qualitative, phenomenological study to understand the lived experiences of elementary classroom teachers who are implementing RTI. The participants' experiences suggested that teachers need foundational professional development, training on research-based interventions, materials provided for specific interventions, consistent assessment tools, personnel support, review core instruction, support for structuring RTI, hands-on training and experience and leaderships support. The participants' experiences also revealed that many of these needs are not being provided and that they struggle to implement RTI without the needed supports. The results of this study may be useful for other districts, schools and teachers as they begin to implement RTI.
