Response to Intervention is a way of thinking about teaching and learning that empowers schools to meet the needs of all learners. Traditionally, schools have operated in what Cole and Shlechty call “the factory model of schooling.” 1 Schools operating like this generally allow fixed and limited amounts of time in which students receive homogenous instruction. This results in variable learning since some students lack basic pre-requisite skills and not all students learn at the same rate or in the same way.
