Response to intervention is a multi-tiered model for implementing instruction to a diverse population of students with differing needs. This study asked the question: how does the RTI model affect literacy instruction for meeting standard students? Research was conducted with a group of four meeting standard students and five educators that work within the school. Through active observations, student interviews, teacher questionnaires, and analysis of student work, it is evident that with the integration of RTI there has been an increase in staff collaboration, data analysis, and a need for additional resources. The implications of this study were the following: the absence of planning time tied to RTI, the need for additional resources, and the importance of data analysis.
