Best RTI Tier 3 Reading Models

Response to Intervention (RTI) Tier 3 Corrective and Compensatory Reading Models

The Best RTI Reading and English Language Arts Models
| Tier 3 Response to Interventions (RTI), that truly close the academic achievement gap are costly and require valuable teaching time. Holistic Tier 3 RTI can provide up to three years of reading and math growth for the entire class! Tier 3 RTI academic interventions are based usually on individual instruction and are the most rigorous. The individualized approaches that Tier 3 RTI uses can be costly without quality teachers and training.

What is RtI? 
Response-to-Intervention (RtI) is the practice of providing high-quality instruction/intervention matched to student needs. Progress is closely monitored and changes in instruction are based on data collected from on-going assessment. RtI represents an educational strategy to close achievement gaps for all students, by preventing smaller learning problems from becoming insurmountable gaps. (NASDSE, 2006)

What do the tiers mean?
Tier I | ALL students receive Tier I interventions, also know as “Best Practices.” Tier I interventions will be successful with 80-90% of the student population. Classroom teachers provide Tier I interventions and supports.

Tier II | Based on academic school-wide screening, students who are not meeting grade level benchmarks and for whom Tier I interventions are not supportive enough will receive Tier II interventions. They receive the same instruction as students in Tier 1 as well as targeted interventions. Tier II represents 5-10% of the population. Tier II interventions are provided by the classroom teacher as well as support staff when necessary.

Tier III | Students who are not making adequate progress at Tier II will receive Tier III interventions. Tier III interventions include intensive instruction, specific to the student’s highest area(s) of need. Tier III should only represent 1-5% of the population. Tier III interventions are provided by the classroom teachers as well as specialists in the specific area of skill deficit.

7 Things Teacher and Students Will do Daily to Improve Literacy! 
  1. Teachers and Students Will Develop Academic Decision Making, Questioning, Argument (Academic Discourse), Risk-Taking, and Curiosity in their Classrooms
  2. Teachers Will Expose Children to Advanced Literature with Advanced Syntopical Readings 
  3. Teacher's and Students Will Lead Socratic Seminars (High-Level, Text-Based Discussions)
  4. Teachers and Students Will Focus on Reading Strategies, Structures, and Processes for Advanced Understanding of Literacy (Growth of the Mind and Experience Expanded Consciousness of Being)
  5. Teachers and Students Will Create Reading Assignments for Real Audiences and with Real Purpose
  6. Teachers and Students Will Focus on Analyzing Tier 3 and Tier 2 Academic Vocabulary
  7. Teachers and Students Will Read Daily to Feed and Expand, Reasoning, Thinking, Knowledge, Spirituality (Personal Well Being), and Human Capacity

Top academic areas to work on to prepare for EOG Reading Test!
  1. Build reading fluency rates: Increased reading fluency greatly improves reading comprehension.
  2. Develop tier 2 and tier 3 academic vocabulary knowledge: Academic vocabulary knowledge is critical to understanding complex reading passages and higher order reading comprehension questions.
  3. Build reading comprehension skills by identifying authors purpose, inference, and drawing conclusion that make up the most complex domains of reading comprehension. 
  4. Develop critical thinking and strategic decision making, analytical thinking skills, and academic problem solving with socratic seminars and student friendly academic discourse. 
  5. Develop Higher-Order-Thinking skills by using Blooms Taxonomy and Webbs DOK question stems. 
  6. Make the art of reading a skill that has value not test prep drudgery! 

Reading Boot Camp is a highly effective, corrective, and compensatory academic model that is a holistic Tier 3 intervention model. Sean Taylor the Reading Sage

How can a Dyslexic Reading Teacher HELP 95% of all at-risk students pass the EOG Reading Test? 10 Consecutive Years!

"Mr Taylor who annually starts with a class of fourth graders, 2/3 of whom are below grade level, and ends the year with most of the class at and above grade level. He gets results by emphasizing reading and writing, and holds students responsible for the work assigned. All the students read the same challenging books, stories and poems; they spend a lot of time on vocabulary, take notes, identify the main chapter idea and write a chapter summary every day. They read about six challenging books a year...Fortunately for his students, he puts them first and is determined that every student will make at least one year of progress in his class. Some students make spectacular gains in reading, writing or math. The average student this past year made about three years academic progress....His Title I students perform as well as students in the nearby "rich" area with all top-rated schools."  Robert Cherba
