A Team-Based Approach to Improving Core Instructional Reading Practices within Response to Intervention
Harlacher, Jason E.; Potter, Jon B.; Weber, Jill M.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v50 n4 p210-220 Mar 2015
Core instruction is an important part of an effective response to intervention (RTI) model. To implement RTI effectively, school teams should regularly examine the effectiveness of their core instruction to determine if at least 80% of students meet the proficiency standard with core support alone. However, some educators may not have the skills necessary to hold a meeting that focuses exclusively on core instruction. To provide educators with a format to lead such a meeting, the authors describe a grade-level team meeting in which the purpose is to use data to analyze the effectiveness of core instruction in reading. A sample agenda and detailed case example are provided.
