Response to intervention and instruction for ELLs
from By Erick Herrmann
In an effort to meet the needs of all students and to prevent students from falling behind academically, many schools have adopted response to intervention and instruction. According to the RTI Action Network, "Response to intervention is a multitier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs." RTI works from two key, foundational premises: that all students can learn if they are provided appropriate, effective instruction, and most academic difficulties can be prevented or remedied when there is early identification and immediate intervention. These premises apply to all students, including English learners.
