Interconnections and Perceptions of the Response to Intervention Process and the Benefits of Collaboration
Ethnographic & Qualitative Research Conference
This qualitative research study examined the collaboration practices and Response to Intervention (RtI) processes enacted in a rural elementary school in the Midwest. Through interviews and observations of RtI planning meetings, the narratives revealed the challenges of beginning a new response to intervention program and how collaboration is one positive aspect that can assist in meeting the needs of struggling students. The findings present the teacher’s varied definition/understanding of RtI, the interconnections of the intervention process, and how collaboration benefited the needs of all students and teachers.
