What Are “Culturally Relevant” Response-to-Intervention (RtI) and Problem Solving Models?
If you are like most educators, administrators, and parents, you might have heard of culturally relevant models, but are not quite sure what they are or how they should look in the classroom. Research is clear in that most educators are unfamiliar with the cultural experiences of students of color in general, and the cultural experiences of African-American students in particular. This is unfortunate considering culture plays a significant role in engaging students of color not only academically but also socially and emotionally.

In response to reading our recently published book, An RtI Guide to Improving Performance of African-American Students: What Every Teacher Should Know About Culture and Academic Engagement, Pat Quinn says, “This book [An RtI Guide] is both encouraging and relevant to the work that educators are doing. It is a real asset to any teacher. Every teacher who wants to fully engage all students should read this book!”
—Pat Quinn, The RtI Guy, one of the nation’s leading experts on RtI
