Our first interventions in T3 were not successful, lets try again after evaluation and appropriate accommodations.
Many students will benefit from effective Tier 1 supports which most teachers are capable of providing.
I need more help.
T2 interventions are also often provided by GenEd teachers successful, however, sometimes this just comes in the form of teachers providing extra practice.
This is the worst!
Here is some extra practice!
I CAN'T DO THIS
Many believe T3 supports should be given by a SPED teacher. It is believed that they are more capable of providing intensive interventions and identifying children who may be eligible for ESE services. However, this can put more pressure on SPED teachers who are often already struggling with over-stuffed caseloads.
Tier #3 w/ General Educator
I'm out of ideas. Good luck kid.
An effective teacher can deliver T1 supports to a class of students.
Some people feel that a GenEd teacher should be able to support a group of diverse students and any level/tier. At the T2 level, many teachers begin to see this as a challenge and/or not part of their job description.
Oh! Got it!
However, whether is a issue with teacher outlook or the way teachers are trained, at the T3 we often see GenEd teachers struggle to support these students who show a great need for intervention or further services.
