Academy 1: Overview of Culturally Responsive Response to Intervention ModelsAcademy Abstract:
This academy presents Response to Intervention (RTI) as a culturally responsive model for ensuring evidence-based, high-quality opportunities to learn in inclusive settings for all students, including those who are culturally and linguistically diverse. While culturally responsive RTI models have the potential to address issues of disproportionate representation for minority students in special education programs by providing access to curriculum and instructional practice grounded in research that attends to the powerful role of culture in teaching and learning, these models also hold promise in ensuring that diverse learners are provided with more robust educational opportunities.
As a result of the activities and information shared at this Leadership Academy, module participants will:
- Become familiar with the basic structures and features of culturally responsive RTI with a focus on ensuring that general education provides robust, high quality opportunities to learn for all students
- Get acquainted with research that supports literacy instruction for learners who are culturally and linguistically diverse
- Learn to strengthen general education systems to meet the needs of diverse learners through educators’ professional learning towards culturally responsive practices.
