Early in my career, I was a special education teacher and a co-teacher who worked within the inclusion model at the secondary school level. I became convinced that EVERY high school classroom needs to begin with RTI (Response To Intervention) Tier One, with differentiated teaching strategies, so that every student can learn.
How can we meet these students’ needs without neglecting some other part of the workload? It can be pretty tough to carve out the time. Well, there’s a teaching strategy to help students who need additional help, using audio books and online resources.
Studies have proven that reciprocal teaching greatly influences student comprehension skills.
Incorporating visuals into an RTI strategy can help all students learn better. When teachers add visual learning strategies to what they are teaching, student recall improves.
