Response to Intervention: A Systematic Problem Solving Process Rhode Island RTI Initiative Module One 2007
R T I Goals of This Module 1.To develop awareness of the five essential components of a systematic problem solving process: Response To Intervention (RTI) and how they relate to national and state initiatives. 2.To consider and discuss with your colleagues what you already have in place that is a part of systemic problem solving process to effectively implement RTI. 3.To develop next steps for RTI in your school and district as part of your school improvement plan.
R T I Why RTI? Think about a student (or group of students) who was difficult to teach... And you ended up being successful. 1.Who was the student(s)? 2. What was the problem? 3. What did you do? 4. How do you know you were successful?
R T I Nationally Early and Preventative Intervention Three-tier models of Literacy and Positive Behavior Supports Formative assessment Response to Intervention NCLB, 2000 IDEA, 2004
R T I RTI Defined RTI is the practice of providing high quality instruction matched to students needs and using rate of learning over time to make important educational decisions. National Association of State Directors of Special Education (2005).
R T I Building Capacity: Beginning with a Goal in Mind Collaborative engagement includes: Being data driven in an effort to help every student succeed Making a commitment to do whatever it takes when they acquiring evidence that suggest particular students arent succeeding Studying about and use best practice in their repertoire of daily teaching strategies Examining curriculum, instruction and assessment across grade levels and subject areas to assure students continuous learning experiences. Celebrating success Learning from one another Problem solving together Engaging in learning about learning as a daily activity. Pam Robbins
R T I Turn and Talk Connections? Positive reactions? Challenges/Concerns?
R T I Building the RI Model What is it? A problem-solving process A school-wide instruction and intervention system A way to make data-based decisions using screening and progress monitoring data A shared responsibility Part of the special education and personal literacy plan process

R T I RTI: A Systematic Problem Solving Approach If a student isnt performing as expected, we will change what WERE doing … and continue problem solving until we find what works.
R T I What is problem-solving? A decision making process 1. Problem Identification 2. Problem Analysis 3. Plan Development Revise Modify Intensify With Expanding Support 4. Plan Implementation 5. Plan Evaluation
R T I 1. Problem Identification What is the discrepancy between what is expected and what is occurring?
R T I Why is the problem occurring? 2. Problem Analysis
R T I What is the goal? What is the intervention plan? How will progress be monitored? 3. Plan Development
R T I 4. Plan Implementation How will implementation fidelity be ensured?
R T I Did the student(s) respond to the intervention? 5. Plan Evaluation CELEBRATE? REVISE? MODIFY? INTENSIFY? WITH EXPANDED SUPPORT?
R T I Intensive Interventions 1. Problem Identification 2. Problem Analysis 3. Plan Development Revise Modify Intensify With Expanding Support 4. Plan Implementation 5. Plan Evaluation
R T I This process takes… 1.A shared responsibility 2.A school-wide intervention system 3.Assessment Data: Screening and Progress Monitoring
R T I RTI Policy Personal Literacy Plans/Programs –Problem Solving Approach –Circles of Support –Benchmark and Progress Monitoring Assessment –Interventions Learning Disabilities Guidance –RTI Secondary Reform
R T I Why RTI for me?
R T I Why RTI? …. Increase our ability to be successful with all students A RI Teacher "It just makes sense" A RI Teacher "We don't have to wait for failure" A RI Teacher
R T I Next steps What professional development is needed? How does this connect to other initiatives in your district and school? How do you insure implementation of RTI through your school improvement plan?
