This multimedia overview explains why states and districts are turning to Response to Intervention (RtI) systems described, including the three instructional tiers and components that are common to most systems such as universal screening, progress monitoring, systematic instruction, and differentiation based on data.
This topic includes four recommended practices:
- Screen all students for potential math difficulties and monitor their progress. (Screening and Monitoring)
- Focus interventions on whole and rational numbers, word problems, and fact fluency. (Arithmetic Foundations)
- Provide explicit instruction and incorporate visual representations and motivational strategies. (Intentional Teaching)
- Establish a systemwide framework for RtI to support the three recommended practices. (RtI Implementation)
