Response to Intervention: Employing a Mnemonic-Strategy with Art Media to Help Struggling Writers
Dunn, Michael
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v2 n3 Fall 2012
With the implementation of response to intervention (RTI) in many schools across the United States and Canada, many educators have a renewed focus on intervention and assessment programming for students who struggle with academics. One format to manage interventions is for educators to provide these children with mnemonic-strategy instruction. In this study, mixed methods included experimental design, participatory action research, and arts-based data. Four 4th-grade struggling writers at a pacific-northwestern US school completed a writing-interest survey, learned the Ask, Reflect, Text (ART) story-writing mnemonic strategy which included the use of art, received story content and quality progress-monitoring scores at selected sessions, and completed a final exit interview about the intervention. All four participants improved with content; improving quality was more of a challenge. Results and implications are discussed.
