We Need An Intervention: Resources for RTI Students

My students need an IPad for reading and media as well as books such as "a people's history of the United States" and " SHSAT: Power Practice".

My Students

How come it is often the students who struggle to read that are misbehaving in class? There are no "bad" kids, kids who misbehave just need extra support and intervention. Help me help the students that need it the most!

My students are in grade five through eight at a K-8 School.

The school is almost 100% free lunch which means most families are below the poverty line. This lack of funds often translates to lower student progress in the classroom. We are located in central Harlem in a culturally rich but under-served community.My students are bright, engaged and want to learn. All students linked to this project receive "response to intervention" or RTI services in my school building. This means that every single child in this group did not pass the state exam and is well behind his or her peers when it comes to reading. These students are pulled from their classrooms throughout the day to receive more attention in a small group in the hopes that we can move them up a level in their reading.

My Project

With almost one thousand students, almost a third of our students receive RTI ( response to intervention) support. While there are only two RTI teachers in the building, they bring their all to the job. Being pulled from the classroom for extra support is often demoralizing for students. An ipad to introduce media and other online games to their RTI instruction will make their pull out support more rewarding and more exciting! The resource books will help their teacher get up to date on the latest techniques to help the students move even further towards the reading level of the other students on their grade.

Donations will revolutionize our RTI ( response to intervention) program at my school.

It will no longer be something students dread but rather something they look forward to, progressing their learning full steam ahead! In order to best help our students we need to arm our teachers with the resources to make learning possible. Help me help them!
