Early childhood teachers will have students with a variety of skill levels and behavior needs in the classroom. The data teachers gather from observations and other assessments of the children will allow them to classify these characteristics using RTI or MTSS so that the teacher can best meet each child’s individual learning needs.
Design a graphic organizer depicting the three tiers of RTI. Within each tier, use research to identify and briefly describe five examples of academic interventions and five examples of behavior interventions that align to that tier (for a total of 30 interventions).
In 250 words, reflect upon the evolution of interventions throughout the RTI tiers. How do you motivate these learners to learn and grow? Be sure to explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
