In Simplifying Response to Intervention, the authors of Pyramid Response to Intervention pick up where they left off—advocating that RTI is not a series of implementation steps to cross off on a list, but a way of thinking about how educators can ensure each child receives the time and support needed to achieve success. They go on to submit that for RTI to be effective, work must be divided between collaborative teacher teams and two schoolwide teams (a leadership team and an intervention team). Together, the entire school assumes responsibility for the learning of every student.
