Welcome to a series of train-the-trainer modules developed by the Rhode Island Response to Intervention Initiative to assist districts in preparing their staff to implement a systematic problem solving process to meet the needs of all students. These modules were developed to enable district teams to meet their increasing professional development needs in a flexible as-needed manner. While the modules will not provide all the information that you need to implement Response to Intervention effectively, they will provide an awareness of each of the key components and materials to help staff understand how Response to Intervention is consistent with many instructional and leadership initiatives: Personal Literacy Plans, Secondary Reform, Special Education Eligibility, Professional Learning Communities.
