TIER I

TIER II

TIER III

TIER I

Torgesen & Greenberg, 2004

Main Component:

•Small-group supplemental instruction provided in addition to the core reading instruction.

TIER II

Torgesen & Greenberg, 2004


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

Torgesen & Greenberg, 2004


Four Types of Learners

Type D Type C Type B Type A

SPED “At Risk” On Level--CORE Above Level

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.

Placement Recommendation by Tier Group

*Levels 4 and 5

ER-Early Reading

PR- Primary Reading

SOS- Strategies for Older Students


TIER I (Advanced): Lexia as EnhancementExample for Grade 1

  • Tier I (advanced) students will benefit from the extra phonics practice Lexia provides.

  • Students will continue to move forward at own pace.

  • Recommended Use: 2 times per week for 20 minutes

  • Add It reinforces the reading and spelling of common suffixes.

Primary Reading, Level 5, Add It, Unit 5


Group It II develops conceptual reasoning skills.

Another example

Elevator provides practice in constructing and reading two-syllable words in isolation, in sentences, and in stories.

This activity also supports comprehension.

Another example

Primary Reading, Level 5, Elevator, Unit 11


TIER I (On level): Lexia as ReinforcementExample for Grade 1

  • Tier I (on level) students will benefit from the extra phonics practice Lexia provides.

  • Students will continue to move forward at own pace and possibly move into advanced group.

  • Recommended Use: 2 times per week for 20 minutes.

  • Short Vowel Bridge works on medial vowel discrimination and sound/symbol correspondence.

Primary Reading, Level 2, Short Vowel Bridge, Unit 9

  • Recommended Use: Daily for 20-30 minutes

  • Sound Match increases awareness of beginning and ending sounds.

Early Reading, Level 1, Sound Match, Unit 1
