Activity: Addressing Resistance Imagine when you get back to your district, you hear the following comments/resistance about RTI. How will you address them? “Certain students (SPED, ELL, etc) shouldn’t be in the Core because they won’t benefit. They need a different program/level” “These “fluency” assessments are just about speed and don’t really tell us what our students are learning” “Students in my classroom are doing just fine. Why do I have to change how I teach?” “Isn’t this just one more thing for us to do on top of everything else we are already doing?” What other resistance/comments have you encountered?
