10 Steps to Make RTI Work in Schools

Organization: Center on Response to Intervention at American Institutes for Research

This publication is part of a series by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) that offers policymakers, educators, and the general public accessible, research-based information on pressing education issues. AIR worked closely with a school in New York to implement a rigorous response to intervention (RTI) framework over 3 years. In the course of this work, both AIR and the school took away several important building blocks useful to any school or district implementing RTI. This piece summarizes information by sharing the work alongside useful resources and evidence about the implementation of RTI.

A Blueprint for Effectively Using RTI Intervention Block Time

Organization: Education Development Center, MA

Many schools have adopted schoolwide intervention blocks as a component of response-to-intervention (RTI) implementation to ensure that students who need intervention are receiving it. This resource presents a blueprint of how to organize intervention block time within an RTI framework. The authors provide a rationale for creating a schoolwide intervention block, and describe how to effectively implement an intervention block while avoiding potential pitfalls.. Specific planning considerations are outlined and suggestions for monitoring fidelity of implementation are presented.

A Literature Map of Dropout Prevention Interventions for Students with Disabilities

Organization: National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities

This resource presents a synthesis of 19 studies examining the effects of interventions intended to reduce dropout rate in secondary students. In order to be included in the synthesis, a study had to include students with disabilities in its sample groups and report outcomes for these students. The authors describe the interventions, outcomes, sample characteristics, and methodological characteristics for each study included in the synthesis. Recommendations for practice, future research, and policy are discussed.

A Summary of Functional Behavioral Analysis

Organization: IRIS Center

Students who display problem behaviors that are unresponsive to typical behavioral interventions may require a functional behavioral assessment (FBA). An FBA can determine the function of the student’s behavior, a critical step in planning an effective intervention. This video created by the IRIS Center provides a summary of the steps in the FBA process.

Academic Intervention Tools Chart

Organization: National Center on Intensive Interventions (NCII)

The National Center on Intensive Intervention publishes this chart to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select intervention programs that best meet their individual needs. The National Center on Intensive Intervention defines Intensive Instructional Intervention as additional or alternative intervention programs to the core curriculum conducted in small groups or individually with evidence of efficacy for improving academic outcomes for students whose performance is unsatisfactory in the core program. The chart reports information on four aspects of the studies/interventions: (1) Study Quality, (2) Effect Size, (3) Intensity, and (4) Additional Research.

The toolkit includes resources for both states and teachers and has the following purposes: 1. To help teachers understand the value of integrating literacy best practices and instructional strategies into content-area instruction. 2. To provide teachers with useful resources to help them integrate literacy best practices and instructional strategies into content-area instruction. 3. To provide resources to states for literacy professional development conducted at the state level.
