RTI2 - Response to Instruction and Intervention
What is RTI2?
RTI2 is Tennessee’s framework for teaching and learning. It begins with access to high-quality instruction with appropriate scaffolds throughout the day and emphasizes intervening with students when they first struggle to avoid prolonged academic difficulties.
The first “I” in RTI2 is instruction; strong Tier I or core instruction is the foundation of RTI2. Core instruction and grade-level expectations are delivered to all students through the Tier I instructional block.
The second “I” in RTI2 is intervention. Intervention is offered as additional instruction with multiple entry and exit points based on students’ needs.
