The Importance Of Response To Intervention In Education

Good Essays
Response to Intervention (RtI) is a data driven model of ongoing assessment. There have been many discussions about RTI in school age children. RTI has three tiers each last around eight weeks. Tier I is the first intervention, and screening for at risk students. According to Bayat, Mindes, and Covitt (2010) the teacher begins to use a validated curriculum that targets specific skills in large or small group formation while conducting ongoing assessment. Children that continue to have difficultly even after the implementation of the evidence based curriculum are moved on to tier II. Tier II requires parent consent, and children usually receive private tutoring done by a specialized teacher or general education with more intense interventions …show more content…
“R & R can be distinguished from these other tiered models because it specifically addresses academic learning for your children, and includes all of the key components of RTI” (Buysse & Peisner-Feinberg, (2010). R & R was designed for young children including children with disabilities using three key components present in all tiers (1) recognition, which involves gathering assessment information by screening all children and progress monitoring some with targeted interventions, (2) response, which includes providing an effective curriculum, intentional instruction, and targeted interventions linked to assessment results; (3) collaborative problem solving, which offers a process that have teachers, parents, and specialist work together to plan and evaluate instruction (Buysee et al., 2010). The recognition portion includes a universal screening occurs three times a year for all pre-k students in the program; typically, in the fall, winter, and spring. Teachers use the screening information to recognize children that may need additional interventions, and develop interventions for each child. After interventions have started teachers need to progress monitor student’s skills periodically to see how well the individual child is responding to these interventions over time (Buysee et al., 2010). According to Buysee et al. (2010) when choosing assessments to progress monitor it must be quick and easy to administer, measure both children’s level and rate of growth, how well a child performs at any given point and the amount of gain in learning over time. “Response component in the R & R model refers to the core instruction offered to all children as well as more targeted intervention that are proved for some children that need additional help” (Buysee et al., 2010). R & R has explicated small-group interventions at tier 2 that are complemented by embedded

    My school has students from age three to eight grade and their needs are very different. By understanding the different stages, teachers can provide activities that will meet their needs. Teachers, administrators and other personnel can use these stages to create a curriculum that will meet the developmental needs of each group. Teachers in pre-k to first grade will implement lessons and activities that allow kids to build background, use manipulative to understand concepts and develop symbolical thinking. Children in grades second to sixth grade use their background knowledge regarding concrete experiences to generalize and solve problems.…

    Tier 1 symbolizes its function, as the foundation for other practices deemed appropriate for all young children (Frameworks for Response, n.d.). Tier 2 refers to practices that include scaffolding, repetition, and guided practice in developing appropriate activities and routines (Frameworks for Response, n.d.). Tier 3 is composed of highly individualized teaching practices, such as supporting children in learning skills that are critical to achieving common outcomes that are addressed in Tier 1 (Frameworks for Response, n.d.). An illustration from the article, Frameworks for Response to Intervention in Early Childhood Education: Descriptions and Implications (n.d.), illustrates the triangle with a circle around the model, displaying the key features listed above, making this a dynamic process of gathering, analyzing, decision-making, implementing, and evaluating method for…

    Curriculum Models: HighScope Model and The Montessori Method In this paper the author will focus on HighScope Model and the Montessori Method and comparisons between each approach. The HighScope Model believes that a child is an active learner. The children are given scaffolded learning that is developmentally appropriate, and the curriculum is based around interests of the children. The teachers use Child Observation Record (COR) assessment to help create notes throughout each day to understand the child’s development during activities and how to create activities to help their growth. The Montessori Method believes that children go through developmental stages and have minds that are absorbent in all stages of development.…

    Students in the middle school environment, according to Manning and Bucher (2012) learn best when teachers take into account student development, adolescents mature and grow at different paces during this development. This strategy allows for teachers to take into account the development of each student individually and create a learning environment in terms of grouping, approach, and assessment for each student no matter where they are in personal development. With this type of instruction, co-teaching would provide very useful. Co-teaching allows for more than one educator to have an important role within the classroom environment and student learning. Parallel teaching would provide more one-on-one attention for each student, making the individualized instruction more accessible to students.…

    Assessing academic, physical, and social behaviors of each child will provide the teacher with knowledge regarding the child’s level of development and individual skill levels. The specific information a teacher learns from assessments will be dependent on the methods used to compile the data. Pre and post testing of a student provides the teacher with benchmarks to gauge a child’s progress. Assessment tools of observation, journaling, anecdotal notes, event sampling, questioning, and checklists provide a more holistic picture of a student’s achievements. Research has shown that “when a teacher’s professional judgment regarding the quality of student work is based on knowledge arising from the conscientious development and application of consistent…

    Scaffolding In Teaching

    Both spontaneous exchanges and formal instruction can help shape a child’s understanding of the world (Ormrod, 2011). However, it is important that teachers recognise students as “active” and “self-regulated leaners”; positioning children to dynamically participate as problem-solvers, and progress towards more advanced thinking and understanding (Verenikina, 2008, p.163). This is further consolidated by Woods (2015), who states scaffolding is most successful when it is child-centred, and an extension of children’s play to maximise learning in an engaging way. Teachers also have the role of ‘passing-on’ cognitive tools, through social interactions and meaningful experiences, in order to help facilitate children’s growth in “mature thinking and action” (Rogoff, 1990, p.190; Verenikina,…

    Prior to teachers making lesson plans to ensure their students are learning a connection has to be made whether it is physically, socially or mentally. For example, a teacher who is a teaching a first grade classroom or any elementary school classroom needs to give examples, like physical examples just because children tend to learn more as they see things visually. A teacher can relate lesson plans more into the children’s outside world and society in which we are living in to ensure they are learning. For instance, “technology” is the new trend more and more young children are adapting to the technology world, as a teacher creating lesson plans that involve the students to participant on the board like a smart board, they will learn faster. What child learns in relation to their environment and at home is what they believe in.…
