To help school districts begin or continue an RtI implementation, Sopris has developed three RtI Starter Kits, each focusing on a different grade range: primary (K–3), intermediate (3–6), and secondary (6–9).
Who Should Use
The RtI Starter Kits are designed for classroom teachers, reading teachers, reading coaches, reading and literacy coordinators, curriculum directors, and paraprofessionals. Ideally, the Starter Kits will augment professional development, effective core/alternative core programs, universal screening and targeted progress monitoring, and other supplemental instructional programs.
How to Use
Each RtI Starter Kit provides an example of broad-based supplemental instruction and intervention that teachers can use right away with struggling readers. As educators' understanding of specific student needs grows, complement these Starter Kits with other supplemental programs.
