Student Targeted Reading Instruction that Values Early Intervention

The purpose of project S.T.R.I.V.E is to diagnose reading deficits and provide targeted instruction to address individual student needs as part of the RTI process. The goal of the program is to enhance student interest in reading and develop independent readers.
 
 Program Model:
 
·      Early intervention with a focus on K-2 students
 
·      Reading specialists contribute expertise in the area of reading development as part of the RTI process (Response to Intervention)
 
·      Use a variety of assessment measures (including diagnostic, benchmark, classroom data) to select student participation
 
·      Begin with students scoring below the 10 percentile of local norms to determine participation in small group and/or intensive instruction (tier 2 or tier 3)
 
·      Utilize a variety of progress monitoring tools as a piece of information to determine movement between tiers
 
·      Contribute progress monitoring data to determine appropriate movement between tiers
 
·      Collaborate with problem solving team to determine interventions for individual student needs
 
·      Provide classroom teachers with suggested instructional strategies to support students within the general education classroom

Eligibility is determined through benchmark assessment, diagnostic screening, and classroom teacher referral. Assessments are used to determine student eligibility and identify specific areas of need. The assessments that are reviewed and analyzed may include:

  •  ISEL (Illinois Snapshots of Early Literacy)
  •  DRA (Developmental Reading Assessment)
