Implementation of Response to Intervention at Middle School: Challenges and Potential Benefits
Johnson, Evelyn Sue; Smith, Lori
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v40 n3 p46-52 Jan-Feb 2008
One model that can help middle school educators provide an effective system of instruction and early intervention is response to intervention (RTI). RTI is a schoolwide process that integrates instruction, intervention, and assessment. The alignment of instruction, assessment, and interventions promotes a stronger, more cohesive program of instruction that ultimately can result in higher student achievement. In this article, the authors describe one middle school's approach to developing an RTI model, using the existing literature as a framework for presenting the implementation process and evaluating areas in which improvement and continued attention will be needed for success. (Contains 2 figures.)
