Kathy Faust: Reading Intervention
Seven Oaks MEDIA Magnet School
Reading Intervention is a short-term program that provides help for students who need additional assistance in learning to read and write. Students receive one-to-one or small group instruction for 30 minutes each day.
What is Response to Intervention (RtI)?
Seven Oaks Elementary Media Magnet School offers a 3 tiered reading approach to help struggling readers. Students' progress is closely monitored at each stage of intervention to determine the need for further research-based instruction and/or intervention in general education, special education or both.
Description of Tier 1 - Core Instruction: Takes place in the student's regular classroom and is taught by the student's teacher if student has been identified as needing extra assistance.
Description of Tier 2: Strategic Instruction: Takes place in a pull-out setting and is taught by a trained Reading Interventionist. A student is referred by the classroom teacher for extra assistance in the area of reading. Various types of data (Dominie, MAP, state mandated tests, and teacher observations) are reviewed by the RtI team in order to determine placement in this tier.
