The article presents information helpful to U.S. educators who are trying to implement responsiveness to intervention (RTI) into an integrated general and special education approach. The authors explain the three tiers that make up the screening, instruction, and monitoring framework that defines RTI, as of May 2007. They focus on the second tier, where as many as 30 percent of students will require supplemental intervention in reading, explaining secondary prevention, identifying the people best able to support learning at this point, and identifying elements of instruction that the interventions will address. The authors include tables that detail aspects of each tier and provide guidelines for secondary interventions in reading instruction.
