TIER I

Torgesen & Greenberg, 2004


Tier ii

TIER II

Torgesen & Greenberg, 2004


Tier iii

TIER III

Main Component:

•Intensive, strategic, supplemental instruction specifically designed and customized for small-group or 1:1 reading instruction that is extended beyond the time allocated for TIER I and TIER II.

TIER III

5-10% 25-30% 60-65% 5%

Percentages in each group vary—in some schools as many as 20 % are in SPED and 60-70% would benefit from explicit instruction.
