Examining Response to Intervention (RTI) Models in Secondary Education
Epler, Pam, Ed.
Response to Intervention (RTI) is an intervention model designed to assist all students regardless of their academic ability. It seeks to assist students who are struggling in academics by providing them with targeted assistance in the form of tutoring, pull-out services, and differentiated classroom instruction. "Examining Response to Intervention (RTI) Models in Secondary Education" highlights the application of the RTI model to secondary schools through instructional strategies and real-world examples of how this model can be used at the middle and high school levels.
