Strength-Based RTI: Conceptualizing a Multi-Tiered System for Developing Gifted Potential
Bianco, Margarita
Theory Into Practice, v49 n4 p323-330 2010
This article explores the possibilities of a strength-based Response to Intervention (RTI) model for developing and identifying gifted potential. Although much has been written about the promises and challenges of RTI in recent years, the utility of RTI for meeting the needs of gifted learners has not been fully explored. This article seeks to address this void by examining RTI's potential to meet the unique learning needs of gifted and talented students, discuss challenges teachers might face, and invite gifted education advocates and researchers to explore and expand on this dialogue.
