In this sequel to Pyramid Response to Intervention, authors Buffum, Mattos, and Weber advocate that an effective RTI model begins by asking the right questions. They present an inverted version of the RTI pyramid that narrows the focus to each individual child and explain how teacher teams and two schoolwide teams collaborate to assume collective responsibility for the learning of every student.
