The stars review RTI procedures and

about Tier 1 & 2 interventions in detail.

back to basics
Back to Basics


Always begin with universal screening


Be sure to place struggling students in Tier 1


Carefully document interventions

  • results of universal screening
  • at-risk students identified
  • progress toward meeting grade-level performance goals

(monitor progress & set new short term goals)

tier 1 tier 2
Tier 1? Tier 2?
  • outside the regular reading/math time
  • flexible small group intervention by classroom teacher or specialist
  • 30 minutes at least 3 times per week
  • within the regular reading/math time
  • small group intervention by classroom teacher

Lesson Strategies for Intervention

ela reading strategy activate connect bgk
Students need to understand:

what it means to make a connection with the text

their personal experience is important to understanding what they read and learn

learn to listen to their inner voice to make sense of text

ELA Reading Strategy:Activate & Connect BGK
monitor comprehension
Monitor Comprehension
  • Monitor your inner voice to focus your thinking
  • Make thinking visible
  • Show how a connection aids understanding
express your thinking
Express your Thinking

Connect & Engage Students:

  • have students look at the cover for a moment and think – not say or talk aloud- about what is happening
  • then have them turn and talk about what their inner voice was saying to them about the cover

When it comes to meaningful instruction, it is never really about stuff; it’s about thinking and talking and learning.

-Tanny McGregor, Comprehension Connections

I am talking to the book, having a conversation with the pictures and words

model text to self connection
Model Text to Self Connection

“ as I read the text, or hear the words, my inner voice hears the words… “that reminds me of ”… that signals that I am making a connection, and that connection helps me better understand what I am reading.”

It’s the Thought that Counts

The purpose of making connections is to get a better understanding of the story, not just to have a connection.

  • Text-to-Self Connection
  • Text-to-Text Connection

Text + Thinking = Real Reading

Materials for Tier 2 should be DIFFERENTthan those used with students for Tier 1

  • Suggested Resources:
  • Roads to Reasoning
  • Nimble with Numbers
  • AIM 3, 4, 5
  • Suggestions Strategies
  • Cooperative Learning
  • Graphic Organizers

Research-based strategies

Nonlinguistic Representations

Cooperative Learning

Cooperative Learning
  • Positive Interdependence
  • Individual Accountability
  • Equal Participation
  • Simultaneous Interaction

Basic Principles

inside outside circle
Have class stand in concentric circles.

Teacher stands in the middle and asks a question for the inside circle-they respond to their partner in the outside circle.

Repeat process for outside circle.


Inside Outside Circle
individual accountability
Individual Accountability
  • Each person must be responsible for his part in the structure
  • Assess individual effort
  • No group grades
  • Eliminates the free-rider and the workhorse student roles
find someone who
Find Someone Who
  • Students look for someone who can answer a question
  • Students share information
  • Students check for agreement
  • Students move to a new partner
numbered heads together
Numbered Heads Together


  • Group students.
  • Pose a question.
  • Students work to answer the question—making sure that all group members know the answer.
  • Teacher calls on a student at random to answer for the group.




numbered heads examples
Numbered Heads Examples

Spring City Elementary school has 253 girls, 348 boys, and 30 teachers. How many children attend Spring City Elementary School?

  • Students move their bodies to reinforce a concept/content information
  • For example: human bar graphs, shapes, frequency, etc.
formations example
Formations Example
  • Take a piece of blank paper with you
  • Form a line by birth day from January 1 to December 31 at the far right.
  • Now make lines according to the months.
  • Place your paper on the floor where you are standing.
  • Stand back and look at your graph.
talking chips
Talking Chips
  • Students are given a token
  • Each student places a token in the center when they wish to speak
  • All the tokens must be placed in the center before a student may contribute again.
  • Many variations of talking chips exist.
pairs check
Pairs Check
  • Partners work on a worksheet, one student working the problem while the other checks the process/answer. Switch roles.
  • Once the problem has been “checked” circle the check mark.
  • Partners meet with another duo to check answers.
pairs check variation
Pairs Check Variation
  • Partners are assigned

roles of “Gopher” and


1. Gopher gets problem

and sticky note

2. Reader/Writer reads

3. Partners solve &

compare answers

4. Reader/writer writes common answer and they exchanges roles

making connections
