Response to Intervention (RTI) in Bilingual Schools– Position Paper

I wanted to share a 2010 document A FOCUS ON ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS (ELLs) AND THEIR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT: A POSITION STATEMENT 2RTI FINAL [5_5_10v2] on considerations of using RTI in bilingual language programs.

The position papers summarizes why a 2RTI Model is better than a regular RTI model in bilingual language programs. It also speaks to the importance of language learning and how the 2RTI can serve as a framework for planning and developing of you program.

    I am a special education teacher that works in a school were most of our students are ELLs. I am researching on how to evaluate ELL students and decide if they are struggling in class because of language or learning disability. Reading your blog was very helpful and informative for me as an educator.
