A Reading Intervention Menu: "If a Student...Then..."

The purpose of this project was to create a menu of research-based interventions in an “If a student…then…” format. The project addressed the problem of using research-based interventions within the Response to Intervention (RTI) framework. The intervention menu lists common learning challenges that students have on one side of a chart and outlines briefly possible intervention strategies and classroom adaptations on the other side. Also, sample templates for creating small-group instruction tailored to a specific need and a six-week planning template are provided to assist teachers with mapping out their instruction and with parent-teacher meetings. This project is significant because the format of the intervention menu is student-centered instead of curriculum-centered.
