11 Elements of Response to Intervention Ebook Delivers Essentials for Student Achievement and Classroom Success


Are your schools and classrooms doing everything possible to advance learning for struggling students? Higher academic standards, ever-increasing performance requirements, and expected learning outcomes mean new challenges for teaching students.

Response to Intervention (RTI) programs have come a long way—yet in recent years, about 6 in 10 special needs students still did not graduate high school. And, nearly 25% of students in general education classrooms still struggle, despite receiving high-quality core instruction. Many times, classroom curriculum programs can’t accommodate the academic needs of struggling students who just can’t keep pace, or have already fallen a grade level or two behind.

Fortunately, evidence-based solutions for academic intervention can be applied to address all learners and all intervention needs in K-12 math and literacy—whether in resource rooms, as part of the general classroom, after-school programs, or for Special Education classes.

Most education leaders today are utilizing a research-proven systematic Response to Intervention (RTI) strategy to ensure every student graduates.  To support your classroom’s RTI strategy, a guide in the form of an ebook, 11 Elements of Response to Intervention: Essentials for Student Achievement and Classroom Success, details the 11 essential elements required for optimizing achievement for struggling and at-risk students.

RTI methodology that is supported by strong intervention programs in the K-12 instructional curriculum can enable every student to master higher-level cognitive skills, and reach the expectations set by more rigorous learning outcomes.

Implementing a systematic RTI program containing the 11 elements helps educators:

  • Identify struggling and at-risk students sooner
  • Develop a proactive plan to support struggling learners effectively
  • Provide stronger targeted and systematic interventions
  • Differentiate instruction effectively and efficiently
  • Use digital technology for dynamic progress monitoring
  • Adjust intensity and personalize delivery
  • Increase the level of all-around support

Educators and school leaders can use this ebook as a checklist to validate each school’s approach to developing and sustaining comprehensive intervention for all struggling students. Help prepare all struggling learners to meet or exceed grade-level expectations, so they gain the best chance for high-school graduation.
