Virtual Visit: RTI in Action
The RTI Action Network
travels to schools across the nation to find examples of real people doing real work with RTI. The second Virtual Visit showcases Tigard High School in Portland, Oregon, which has been successfully implementing RTI for several years. Listen to the Tigard team as they discuss their success and their challenges implementing RTI at the high school level as well as critical RTI issues like scheduling, screening and instruction, and using data to make educational decisions. Let Tigard High School walk you and your team through the RTI process
from beginning to end!
The heart of any Response-to-Intervention model lies in the use of tiered instructional processes. In this article, Dr. Edward Shapiro discusses key elements to providing tiered instruction, such as the differentiation between tiers, collaboration across all education professionals in the building, and the establishment of a workable schedule that maximizes school personnel resources. The article includes a sample school schedule
using a daily time block for tiered instruction.
