    The NYS RtI-TAC presents: Response to Intervention and the Adolescent Reader: Responsive Reading Practices and Strategies


    Presented by Dr. Anita Archer in Saratoga Springs Area - October 27th, Hudson Valley Area - October 28th, and Long Island Area - October 29th

    A significant number of adolescents enter middle school unable to read and understand complex informational or narrative text. These students would benefit from a multi-tiered system of support that provides responsive reading instruction across tiers of a Response to Intervention Model. The overall goal of this professional development session is to provide general and special education teachers, content area teachers, administrators, and support staff with foundational knowledge regarding best practices for older students who struggle to read. Registration information will be posted when it becomes available.

  • Response to Intervention Plan Template
    Section 100.2(ii), added to Part 100 of the Commissioner's Regulations, set forth minimum requirements for using an RtI process to determine a student's response to research-based intervention. One of the minimum requirements outlined requests districts to establish a plan and policies for implementing school-wide approaches and pre-referral interventions [8 NYCRR section 100.2(ii)]. The Response to Intervention Plan Template for Individual Districts and schools provides guidance for documenting your district's RtI framework and implementation process.
