        Hi,

        At my school kids that need extra come in early and work with a
        specialist (reading, math, etc.) for a half hour. These teachers are
        on flex time, they leave early. Are the students going to miss your
        class every time? If their intensive skill building is on a rotating
        schedule they will not miss the same special area. Taking time from
        all of your classes is not fair to any students, those that need extra
        instruction and those who are on level. What can you do in 20
        minutes? Is that really going to help them build skills? Have they
        thought about building a large block of time in and giving the kids
        what they need, others a meaningful enrichment? Let us know what they
        end up doing. ALi B k-4

            For the first time in 14 years, I have a couple of students who will
            not be having Art because of RTI. In the past it was a big no no to
            pull students from the specials for resource, reading recovery, speech
            or other interventions... but now because of RTI they can do so. I was
            very sad to see one of my students who has always found success in Art
            - pulled out during my time to get extra help in the resource room.
            When I asked if there was any other way, the response was that the
            parents had given approval and understood that would mean this child
            would not be getting Art.

            I'm just afraid that taking away activities that students can find
            success and be able to express themselves is not the right choice.

              Response to Intervention is the practice of identifying the needs of struggling students and providing them focused instruction they need through varying levels of assistance ranging from assistance in the regular classroom to assistance in a special education program.

              Thank you Holly &  Alan  for clarifying what RTI stand for.
               
              Children have different levels of understanding.It also depends on how much interest the teacher takes in explaing the subject to the child.
              Maybe some take a longer time..............some are quick learners.
              RTI is an interesting concept.
               
              It is unfortunate that in India some teachers take extra classes at their homes after school hours and charge an extra fee for that too.

                We are still looking into a schedule for RTI- We already have an
                after school tutoring program that several of these students we have
                in our school are already assigned to-- but they won't come and
                parents don't make them stay. So that is why we are looking at way to
                provide this extra intervention to help them.

                I'm for it-- anything to help the kids. I will probably be involved
                in the intervention for reading in some aspect in the furture. My
                school is just trying to find a way to reach the kids in our already
                packed school day.
