Culturally Relevant RTI Models

Engage - Connect - Inspire
If you are like most educators, you have heard of culturally relevant response-to-intervention (CR-RTI), but may not know how these models should look in the classroom when working with African-American students. At Tier 1, we assist school districts and organizations with creating RTI models that integrate the lived experiences of culturally diverse learners. Educational law speaks to the need to provide appropriate instruction (Individuals with Individuals Education Act, IDEA, 2004) when instructing students in the classroom. Scholars have explained that, if classroom practices are not relevant to the cultural values of students, then the instruction may not be “appropriate instruction,” considering research shows that students are much more engaged when presented with culturally responsive activities.

At Tier 1, we provide step-by-step approaches on how to create RTI models that integrate the cultural values of culturally diverse learners and train educators on how to implement culturally responsive instruction throughout tiers—starting at the Tier 1 level.

Our Training Will

  • boost your knowledge surrounding culturally relevant RTI;
  • increase your ability to align culturally responsive instruction/interventions with state standards;
  • enhance your knowledge of scientific research-based interventions that have been shown to increase engagement among culturally diverse learners;
  • strengthen your ability to engage parents of color within your RTI framework;
  • increase your knowledge of how to use community resources as Tier 2 and Tier 3 supports;
  • enhance your relationships with students of color—and more!

 

Our services move past theory and focus on evidence-based, culturally responsive strategies that teachers can use immediately throughout tiers and grade levels.

5 core beliefs

  • Positive relationships are created in response to positive experiences (affective engagement) among teachers, parents, students, and community leaders.
  • Students perform at their highest potential when presented with “appropriate instruction.” That is, instruction that is not only evidence-based, but also related to the cultural values, passions, learning styles, and interests of students.
  • Positive teacher-student relationships develop when instruction is culturally responsive and engaging.
  • Poor teacher-student relationships develop when students perceive instruction as boring and irrelevant to their passions and interests.
  • Students are inspired to learn and pursue goals when they have meaningful experiences with instruction (engagement) and connect with positive adults (relationships) they believe have their best interests.
