Response to Intervention: Helping All Students Learn
Gerzel-Short, Lydia; Wilkins, Elizabeth A.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v45 n3 p106-110 Spr 2009
Three times a year, all students at one elementary school are universally screened using Curriculum-Based Measurements (CBM). This process allows school-based reading intervention and data teams to determine how students are responding to core reading instruction and which students would benefit from additional instructional support. This type of data collection coupled with team problem solving is known as Response to Intervention (RTI), a new initiative to support the learning of all students, not just those with special needs. This article describes RTI and provides suggestions to educators for successfully implementing this new practice. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
