Question: Why is culturally responsive instruction important within an RTI Framework?
These materials are intended for use by those wishing to conduct a Training of Trainers (TOT) for the Response to Intervention Implementer Series developed by the National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI).
This series of briefs on Progress Monitoring comprises four separate documents. The purpose of these progress monitoring briefs is to provide practitioners with guidance to support careful planning and thoughtful practices as part of comprehensive progress monitoring within the Response to Intervention (RTI) framework. By highlighting frequently omitted pieces of the progress monitoring process, we hope we can steer practitioners away from wasted time and poor results.
The purpose of this series of briefs is to help school practitioners develop a deeper understanding of screening. These briefs cover various topics related to screening practices within an RTI framework so that practitioners will better understand the contextual issues that surround them, and enhance their ability to accurately identify at-risk students using these practices.
Using descriptive information gathered from middle schools already implementing RTI, the NCRTI has developed this resource to provide information to school, district, and state administrators and staff about how the essential components of RTI might be implemented in middle schools.
