Successful Approaches to RTI
Using the Interactive Strategies Approach to Prevent Reading Difficulties in an RTI Context
Donna M. Scanlon
Kimberly L. Anderson
“Using the Interactive Strategies Approach to Prevent Reading Difficulties in an RTI Context” by Donna M. Scanlon and Kimberly L. Anderson is the first of several chapters describing successful approaches for improving literacy within an RTI framework. The Interactive Strategies Approach (ISA) described in this chapter has been developed and tested over the course of several large-scale studies that focus on exploring ways to prevent long-term reading difficulties. The approach has been found to be effective in reducing the number of at-risk children who experience reading difficulties in the early primary grades. It has also been found effective when provided by intervention teachers in both one-to-one and small-group contexts, or by classroom teachers. As with each of the chapters in this book describing a specific approach to RTI, this chapter is followed by a spotlight chapter in which a practical application of this approach in the classroom is described.
