What is RtI?

Response to Intervention or RtI can be defined as a school-wide, multi-tiered prevention framework that provides supplemental, needs-specific intervention to students with learning problems, most notably in the area of reading.   Key components of an RtI framework involve: (1) data driven assessment and problem-solving and tiered supports.  Data driven assessment and problem-solving occur at all levels of the framework and includes universal screening to determine risk status and progress monitoring to determine student response to supplemental intervention.  Tiered support or intervention increases in intensity based on student needs and progress.   RtI operates within a collaborative context that includes educators and families working together to promote academic student success.  For a comprehensive definition of RtI, its components, and NYS regulations click here.

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a school-wide model that uses data-based problem-solving to maximize the positive impact of academic and behavioral instruction and intervention for ALL students through the delivery of instruction in varying intensities. This five part webinar strand will address the connection between RtI and MTSS and how school can use this prevention process to address the academic and learning needs of ALL students.

Session 1 will discuss the relationship between RtI and MTSS and outline the key components of a MTSS framework. (75 minutes)

The Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) emphasize the need for
content area teachers to address the literacy needs of ALL students and provide instruction
that supports student engagement and discussion of complex text and understanding of
academic vocabulary. This 2-day + one webinar session PD event is designed to provide
intermediate, middle, and secondary teachers an opportunity to learn and infuse specific
reading strategies within core instruction in the content areas. Day One presents a comprehensive
overview of Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR), a research-validated instructional
model designed to improve reading comprehension and content learning in general education
and intervention settings in grades 4-12. On Day 2, participants learn how to fine tune strategy
use, to incorporate cooperative learning into text-based discussions, and to lesson plan using
CSR strategies and discipline-specific content and materials. A one hour, follow-up webinar is
designed to further support successful implementation of CSR in content-area instruction.
CSR can be used to differentiate core instruction in content area classrooms or as an intervention
at Tier 2 or 3 of an RtI model. Participants will be given access to materials needed to
implement CSR.
