Re: [art_education] Re: How is RTI affecting your class time?
- Hi Kamla
May I introduce my self. My name Indra Indihira. Right now I teach 3rd garde. My class is 26 student. I want to know, can you tell me about your class. I want to ask you to sharing the teaching experiances.
- 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.

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.Kamla,Chennai,India
- 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.

- Well, that's why we are trying to do-- make a block of time. But by
doing that -- we have to slice minutes off all classes-- from reading,
ss, science, math, pe, art, band, chorus, etc...
We should be having another meeting- so I'll let you all know what
