Truly Responsive Teaching Means a New Approach to the RTI Triangle

Most educators are familiar with the green, yellow, and red triangle used to show the three tiers of instruction associated with Response to Intervention (RTI) or Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). But the prominence of the triangle itself hasn’t been enough to provide educators with a deeper understanding of what it is intended to convey. An RTI/MTSS model is most effective when educators see children, not colors; learners, not levels; and teaching opportunities, not just tiers. This paper offers concrete ideas for a more fluid, informed, and responsive teaching approach for all students.
Learn how to:

  • Improve the impact of interventions
  • Address unfinished teaching and learning
  • Close proficiency gaps
  • Increase student growth
