The Response to Intervention (RTI) model can be very valuable for students with individual needs. In this video, you will see how teacher leader Nicole Andrea Bergeron works with a preschool teacher, Jessica, to supplement her vocabulary instruction for all students, but especially for students who may be candidates for additional support (i.e., a three-tier approach).
What is the purpose of a RTI model? What are examples of data analysis that teachers engage in to make good decisions about which students would benefit from a three-tier approach?
How does having educators work as a team benefit everyone involved? How does collaboration help shed light on designing a three-tier program and monitoring a child’s progress throughout the year?
